Hundseth Power Line Construction was founded in 1976 by C.L. (Cec) Hundseth, under the name Hundseth Line Construction Corp. With 25 years of power line experience, Cec wisely pursued the opportunity to take a risk and venture into the Saskatchewan utility contractor space. Bringing his passion for the industry, Todd Hundseth joined the company in 1980.
Further expansion came in 2011 with the acquisition of Thompson-Jonsson Trenching Ltd., to create the partnership of Hundseth Power Line Construction (HPL) as it exists today.
With more than a century of combined power line construction experience and for almost fifty years, our vision is to be the benchmark contractor in the overhead and underground utilities industry, recognized for the integrity of our people, the ethics of our business practices, and our ability to innovate with leading-edge safety & quality practices.
HPL’s Telecom Division continues to grow as we hold various contracts including two area spread contracts for SaskTel in Saskatchewan, in the Saskatoon and Prince Albert areas as well as the Provincial Fibre and Copper Splicing Contract.
HPL’s affiliate, Highland Powerlines Ltd. was acquired in 1988. Under the same ownership and direction as HPL, Highland promotes the same high standards of integrity and service in the province of British Columbia.
In parallel, HPL has decades of experience in transmission construction & maintenance across Western Canada. HPL has the specialized personnel, equipment, and expertise to deliver to our clients.
Today, HPL is among the leaders in the utility industry, providing exceptional service throughout Western Canada.
