About

Pipe Jacking Trenchless, as its name suggests, is an underground contractor that services all markets of trenchless excavation, except for horizontal directional drilling (HDD). Boasting one of the largest inventories of tunnel boring/excavating equipment on the West Coast ranging in diameters from 42” to 144”, we have the piece of equipment to fit your project. If we don’t, we can build it. Having recently become a business unit of Primoris, PJTI has re-entered the horizontal boring market to service the boring needs of other PSC business units in the pipeline & underground utility market.

Pipe Jacking Trenchless became a PSC business unit in June of 2016. PJTI operated as Pipe Jacking Unlimited for just over 27 years prior to the sale. PJU founder Tony DeAguiar started out in the auger boring business, serving the Southern California market for many years. Over time, PJU began to venture into larger diameter tunnel work, with Tony taking a strong interest in fabricating his own tunnel boring/excavating equipment. By 2008, PJU was primarily a Tunneling Contractor serving the states of California, Nevada, & Arizona. As the years past, Tony continued to increase the quantity and types of tunnel excavating equipment in the PJU quiver as well as develop a large group of loyal employees. Those employees and the equipment built by PJU are at the core of the PJTI business unit and are dedicated to the continued success of the company as a part of PSC.
