AP/M Permaform Grows into Trenchless Solutions Provider
By Sharon M. Bueno

Trenchless technology and AP/M Permaform president Bill Shook go together like beer and pretzels or bacon and eggs or peanut butter and jelly. You get the idea. Shook and his company have been pounding the pavement since the 1980s, extolling the benefits and basic common sense that using trenchless rehabilitation will help fix what is ailing the more than 20 million U.S. manholes that the EPA says are in dire need of repair. Shook and AP/M Permaform started out at a time when the words trenchless technology were met with a blank stare and manholes were virtually ignored by the cities and officials entrusted in their care. Not anymore — times have changed. The Johnston, Iowa-based company has grown in to a leader in the manhole rehabilitation field, providing a network of trenchless solutions and Certified Applicators for manholes, culverts and large diameter sanitary sewers for North America and around the globe.
