Inland Pipe Rehabilitation moves to downtown office, plans to hire 20 in next year

Inland Pipe Rehabilitation just moved its corporate offices to the Beal Building in downtown Detroit and expects to create as many as 20 new jobs over the next year.

The key to the business, according to president and CEO Jeffrey Stark, is that the firm specializes in replacing major parts of the country's rapidly aging infrastructure like water and sewer lines.

"It's a great business. It's recession resistant," Stark says. "The country's infrastructure is aging and needs to be replaced."

The firm employs 362 people across the country, including 65 in Detroit. The company's revenues have grown from $28 million to $31 million in one year, and its expectations are for similar growth for the foreseeable future.

The company's leadership decided to move downtown from its offices near the Schaefer Highway and I-75 because it wanted to be close to the center of the city and be a part of its emerging downtown dynamic.
