With the support of the dedicated and experienced field and office personnel, PPI has earned the trust of customers to complete over 150 public and private projects each year. Our motto of Service, Integrity, and Quality, has helped us establish our reputation as one of the leading Underground Pipeline Contractors in the state of California. Preston Pipelines Inc. was founded by DJ Preston.In the beginning, “Dee” operated a one-man, one-backhoe, irrigation-line repair service for farms and ranches. He built his business by word of mouth, helped by his spotless reputation and dedication to hard work. This led to more jobs and higher visibility for the young company. As a teenager, Mike Preston joined his father, Dee, during high school summer vacations, where he learned the business first-hand – including experiencing the cyclical ups and down of the business and the long hours required for success.
Mike enjoyed the work and wanted to expand the company’s horizons. In 1977, with the company then consisting of five full-time employees, Mike agreed to assume field management responsibilities for Preston Pipelines and worked to incorporate more professional management practices into the company’s procedures. Mike was eager to see the company grow. His strengths were the way he dealt with people – his conservative and ethical business approach, and his honesty and integrity. In 1987, Dee Preston transferred ownership of the company to Mike. Two years later, Dee officially retired from the company.
