Sacramento natives and high school friends Matt Morrow and Chris Post took different paths in their early business lives. After graduating from college, Matt went into land surveying while Chris went into sales and digital marketing.
Flash-forward 25 years… After life taking some wild turns, Matt and Chris reconnected in early 2020 and began reflecting on their complementary skills and passions and brainstorming potential collaborative opportunities.
Matt had always been fascinated by the work done by the utility locators he subcontracted for his land surveying jobs. He appreciated that they helped prevent damage and accidents from occurring on job sites.
After thoroughly researching the industry, Matt proposed the two friends start an underground utility locating business that would allow them to leverage their mapping, marketing and technological know-how to help keep building industry workers safe and keep construction jobs on schedule.
Chris loved the mission from the start and after doing more research, he felt that Matt was really onto something as a lot of the existing utility locating companies were either using outdated technologies, charging lots of money for really small amounts of work, or both!
2M Locating was born out of these conversations.
As our business and team grow, we wake up every morning focused on one goal: preventing damage and accidents on job sites by accurately locating, mapping and documenting underground utilities.
