Kokosing Construction Company Announces Partnership with Integrity Pipeline Services to Create Integrity Kokosing Pipeline Services, LLC

Westerville, Ohio – (4-27-2012) – Kokosing Construction Company, Inc., the largest contractor in Ohio, announced today that it has entered into a partnership with Integrity Pipeline Services of Belleville, Ohio to form Integrity Kokosing Pipeline Services, LLC (IKPS). Integrity’s specializations reinforce Kokosing’s diverse capabilities, and allow both companies to better meet the needs of rapidly expanding markets, particularly the natural gas and oil industry. “This unique opportunity brings together two companies that were seeking new ways to be a major player in the natural gas industry that is literally changing before our eyes. Integrity’s talented employees and mission aligns well with the core ideology of Kokosing. This partnership will equip us with the skills to further diversify and succeed in this new market,” stated Brian Burgett, President and CEO, Kokosing Construction Company.

Integrity Pipeline is a WBE, Central Ohio-based company offering a full range of construction services related to the oil and natural gas infrastructure. The organization was founded by a group of individuals with an extensive background in the oil and natural gas industry. Like Kokosing, Integrity has the highest regard for the safety and well-being of its customers, employees, suppliers, and the general public. Integrity also self-performs much of their own work, including: transmission pipeline construction and maintenance; well pad hook-ups and design, compressor stations, terminal and refinery construction; gas distribution; water transfer systems; cathodic protection systems and hydrostatic testing in the natural gas and petroleum industry. Kokosing’s most significant experience in the oil and gas industry includes current construction of a cryogenic/processing plant for MarkWest in Langely, KY.

Tim Seibert, the current President of Integrity, will be President of IKPS. “I am excited about the synergy that has been created between our companies. The value that our combined services and knowledge brings to our natural gas and oil industry clients is second to none.” Company operations will be maintained in Knox County, OH. Integrity Kokosing will continue to build its successes around a culture that values employees, safety, quality, integrity and superior customer satisfaction. Furthermore, this partnership creates a strong platform for long-term success and growth for the company and its employees.
