Mar-Tech Enterprises Ltd. was incorporated in October of 1971 by Bob Innis. The name “Mar-Tech” is an abbreviation of Marine Technologies, which was the focus of the company in the early seventies.

Mar-Tech Enterprises Ltd. started humbly with one Dodge Van and video inspection unit and as it grew, the focus of the company shifted from underwater to underground pipeline service.

In the late eighties Mar-Tech Enterprises Ltd. was purchased in its entirety by Instituform, who eventually decided to eliminate the video inspection side of the business. This sparked long time Mar-Tech employees, Bob Kennedy and Bob Taylor to form a new company starting with one CCTV video inspection unit.
