ATLANTA, July 12, 2011 – IPR, a leading provider of underground rehabilitation solutions with offices throughout the United States, today announced the official launch of IPR Southeast with the opening of its new facility in Atlanta, Ga, as well as the addition of Steven A. Morini as it’s new general manager. The facility will replace IPR’s previous facility and serve as IPR Southeast’s new headquarters. IPR CEO Joseph A. Cutillo made the announcement.
The 15,500-square-foot facility, located at 5207 Brer Rabbit Rd. in Stone Mountain, Ga., is much larger than the previous location and features state-of-the-art equipment and on-site staff of more than 15 workers and several crews. The company expanded in response to an increased demand for underground rehabilitation solutions services within Georgia and the surrounding markets. The increased demand for IPR’s services has created numerous jobs in the Atlanta market, and the company anticipates hiring several more employees throughout the coming year.
As the new General Manager, Steven Morini will be responsible for overseeing the IPR team and managing client projects and relationships throughout the southeast region. Prior to joining IPR, Mr. Morini served as the general manager and area manager for the east region operations at St. Louis, Mo.-based Insituform Technologies. As such, Mr, Morini was responsible for managing the Construction Service Division to optimize organic growth, profitability and return on investment capital.
“We are extremely excited to welcome Steve to the team as he manages our new regional office, as well as this expanded regional subsidiary to the IPR brand,” said Cutillo. “Over the past year, IPR has had great successes and continued forming strong relationships in and around the city of Atlanta. These accomplishments have forged an opportunity for our company and our employees to affirm our commitment to this area and its residents as we expand our presence and continue to provide the dependable service they have come to expect from us.”
