HK Solutions Group: A Legacy of Innovation in Industrial Services
For nearly 50 years, HK Solutions Group (formerly known as Hydro-Klean) has been highly regarded as a leading industrial services company in the Midwest. While that still stands true today, our continued innovation and expertise have allowed us to expand into new service opportunities and new markets across the country. Today, our expansive service offerings include trenchless manhole rehabilitation, sewer and pipe inspections, large diameter pipe cleaning, wastewater treatment and hazardous waste removal, emergency spill response and more.
With a specialty fleet of hydroblasting equipment, powerful vacuum trucks, sewer video inspection units and a host of specialized tools and equipment, HK Solutions Group has the capacity to solve any problem and meet every need of our industrial and municipal customers across the United States. There is no mess too big or job too tough for us to tackle. Whether servicing a scheduled maintenance request or responding to an emergency, we’re on call and ready to quickly come to your aid.
As a turn-key solution provider, we understand the importance of safety and efficiency, so you can trust us to complete your projects with the utmost precision. Our team is passionate about our services, and we pride ourselves on living by our three core values to Work Hard Work Smart Work Safe™. We continue to exemplify these values by driving innovative solutions in everything we do, from trademarked trenchless technology and strict safety standards to intentional business acquisitions to best meet the advanced needs of our customers.
Our History is Grounded in Growth that Continues to Guide Our Future
What started as a one-man show in Maxwell, Iowa, in 1976 quickly evolved to a full team able to accommodate more industrial service requests. In 2000, we relocated to Des Moines to establish our headquarters. With a central home base in America’s Heartland, we’ve been able to develop a long-term strategy for expanding our service offerings and geographic locations. Today, our history continues to write itself as we grow to make a maximum impact on the customers we serve:
Added CIPP pipe repair services with the acquisition of A-Tech in Watertown, South Dakota, and opened an additional location in Sioux Falls, South Dakota
P - Acquired Infra-Tech in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and began offering Monoform™ manhole rehabilitation
services, and opened an additional location in Mankato, Minnesota
Opened an office in Kansas City, Missouri
Opened an office in Wausau, Wisconsin
Acquired Pipe Masters in Watertown, South Dakota, which enabled us to expand pipeline rehab and pipe inspection services
- Established a distributorship for AGRU lining systems in DeLand, Florida, and Mankato, Minnesota

Acquired pipe repair and sewer inspection companies CME Pipe Lining and SWS Environmental in Cincinnati, Ohio, which allowed us to reach a residential market and expand our industrial service offerings into Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana
Work Hard: Serving Industrial & Municipal Customers Across the U.S.
With certified, highly trained team members at each of our locations across the Midwest and beyond, we are happy to be the go-to industrial services company for industrial facilities, municipalities and food processing plants across each of our locations. Our acquisitions have allowed us to expand our service offerings from Iowa to Kansas, Missouri, Minnesota, South Dakota, Ohio, Wisconsin, Florida and more. Through our recent acquisition of CME Pipe Lining, we can now reach residential customers to provide pipe inspection and manhole rehabilitation in Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana.
No matter who we’re working with, we ensure timely attention to customer requests and offer cost-effective solutions for a wide range of budgets. Our specialization in trenchless technology allows us speedy access to your sewer or pipelines with minimal disruption to surrounding utilities and equipment. Best of all, we promise longevity with our cutting-edge techniques.
Work Smart: Industry Leading Innovation in Trenchless Manhole Rehabilitation, Sewer Video Inspections & More Industrial Services
At HK, we know every operation is only as good as its infrastructure. If infrastructure fails, critical utilities or equipment shut down, causing municipalities and industrial facilities to lose valuable time and money. Often, taking the time to perform traditional pipeline maintenance and repair methods leads to a pause in production while the affected area is dug up, also wasting time and money. That’s why HK utilizes contemporary trenchless techniques that provide access to problematic pipelines and sewer systems with no digging required. With little disturbance to the affected area, operations can continue as planned while we seamlessly strengthen the sewer system from within.
Our trenchless expertise has culminated in our line of Monoform™ manhole rehabilitation solutions meant to be a permanent fix for deteriorated manholes, lasting as long as a full replacement at a much more cost-effective rate. Our high-tech CCTV technology televises footage of your internal infrastructure to our technicians who can expertly recognize potential problems and recommend the most effective solution. With little to no downtime, HK has your infrastructure restored to full functionality in no time.
As a full-scale industrial services company, we also have numerous cleaning capabilities for facilities, pipelines, equipment and other delicate applications. In the event of an emergency, our 24/7 emergency spill response team is prepared to be on-site right away to safely eliminate risks. Our technicians are certified to coordinate both hazardous and non-hazardous waste removal and all receive extensive safety training as a condition of employment at HK.
Work Safe: Unrelenting Commitment to Safety
At HK Solutions, our commitment to safety is based on one simple concept: protect our most valuable resource—our people. We believe people come first and all jobs can be done safely. By taking time to engineer safe solutions to any challenge, safety is always our top priority.
