A little bit about us
Russ Ebert and Precision Cutting and Coring have been providing the Okanagan, Kootenays and surrounding areas with concrete cutting and scanning services since the late ’90s. First hired as a laborer with the company by the previous owner, Russ worked his way up to become a journeyman equipment operator. As new technology became available he went into a partnership with the previous owner to start Precision Radar Scanning. This new partnership enabled Precision to also offer GPR scanning to its customers instead of the previous option of calling companies from Vancouver to provide these services.
Scanning concrete to locate conduit and rebar in the slab prior to cutting or coring now became the new standard thus providing a new level of safety to the local industry. In 2008 Russ became the sole owner of Precision Cutting after the previous owner’s retirement. “I feel very strongly that my experience as a laborer, equipment operator, GPR Tech and now full owner helps me understand the business in a way that allows me to relate to it from an owner and an employee point of view. In order to provide the best service in the industry, you need to surround yourself with the best team in the industry. This means looking at all aspects of the business from an employees perspective to attract and retain the best staff. I truly believe that as hard as my staff works for me that I must work just as hard for them.”
