SUMO was specifically created to meet the market need for a professional underground surveying service to minimise the risk of utility strikes and their associated costs.

Utilising our exclusive GPR system, the SUMO franchise network can detect all types of underground services regardless of the material including metallic pipes, electrical mains, and uniquely, PE ducts, fibre optic cables, plastic gas mains, water services, clay drainage systems and concrete sewers.

As a result, business is booming with group turnover doubling year on year, every franchisee exceeding their targets and a constant requirement for new franchisees to meet customer demand throughout the country. *These projections are merely illustrative. The franchisor does not warrant that any franchisee can expect to achieve these targets.
