Connect. Collaborate. Construct.


The founder, Scott T. Dill, began his underbridge piping career in 1996. Scott's vision was to create the leading underbridge piping company in the United States. As the company grew, the demand for additional services grew as well. The company went through a couple of name changes before settling on Aptus.

Aptus is Latin for connected, and that's exactly what we do. From our Corporate Offices in Charlotte, NC, and though our Regional Offices in the Midwest, Mid-Atlantic, Southeast, Florida, and the Southwest, we connect all utilities across bridges.

Aptus has more than 250 years of combined experience in management and construction. Our motto is Connect – Collaborate – Construct. We connect with our customers, determining their needs. We collaborate to come up with the best solutions for our customers in the most timely and cost effective manner.
