Subsite Electronics, a division of Charles Machine Works, has acquired the assets of R.S. Technical Services, an innovator in the design and manufacture of closed-circuit television remote inspection and monitoring cameras. The transaction adds proven camera inspection capabilities to Subsite’s robust line of Underground Awareness products.

RST camera systems feature single conductor technology, which accommodates all power feed and return functions in a single cable. Past RST innovations include the first true pan-tilt camera with tracking lights from a U.S. manufacturer, the first steerable storm drain tractor or large pipeline tractor, the first single conductor laser and sonar profiling systems, and many more.

“This acquisition adds a significant offering for lining contractors and municipalities in the rehab and replacement market broadening our solutions in the life cycle of the pipe,” said Rick Johnson, CEO of Subsite parent company, Charles Machine Works. “It will also help support our current HDD customers who are diversifying into areas like cross bore inspection work. Their culture of innovation and customer service is a perfect fit with our own drive to bring customer-driven innovative solutions to the underground construction industry.”

RST operations will continue in Petaluma, Calif., and Mt. Sterling, Ky., and RST products will continue to be available through the current RST dealer network.
