About Subsite

Subsite Electronics is committed to providing underground construction professionals with the most comprehensive suite of electronic products in the industry, including utility locators, Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) guidance equipment, equipment machine controls, and closed-circuit television remote inspection and monitoring cameras and accessories.

By listening to their customers, utilising innovative technologies and providing outstanding after-sale support, Subsite Electronics has become the premier source of electronic technology to support the installation, rehabilitation, and maintenance of underground pipe and cable.
In 1989, the Ditch Witch organisation entered the horizontal directional drill market with the Jet Trac®. While the big orange machine got most of the press, it wouldn’t have been possible without Subsite Electronics. The company had been formed a year earlier with one mission – to develop HDD guidance systems needed for the current and future Ditch Witch Jet Trac drills.

Within three years, that mission had expanded to include the development of a new utility locating product line. By 1991, Subsite Electronics had introduced a comprehensive range of innovative and reliable HDD guidance and utility locating products to the underground construction marketplace.

Over the next 20+ years, Subsite’s business and product offerings continued to expand and diversify, to eventually include Ground Penetrating Radar and a wide variety of equipment machine controls.

Subsite Electronics is a member of the “family of companies” that comprise Charles Machine Works, each focused on meeting the needs of the underground construction industry.

Today, as an independent company within Charles Machine Works, they continue to utilise state-of-art electronic technologies to provide underground construction professionals innovative, productive and reliable electronic products to facilitate the installation and maintenance of buried pipe and cable.
