About Us

Vivax-Metrotech develops and manufactures products for buried utility locating, fiber-optic cable locating, ferrous metal detection, coating analysis and performing ACVG surveys on cathodic protected pipes, finding sheath to ground faults on cables, inspecting the interior of pipes and ducts, and mapping of buried utilities.

Vivax-Metrotech products are backed by our worldwide network of trained distributors and service centers, offering our customers local sales, training, and high quality service.Located in Santa Clara, California, in the heart of Silicon Valley, Vivax-Metrotech Corporation designs and manufactures buried utility locating instruments and video inspection equipment. Beginning in 1976 (Metrotech was founded in 1964), Metrotech advanced as a leader in locating technology through design innovations that increased productivity for the user of our instruments. In 2007, Vivax Corporation, an East Coast manufacturer of video inspection camera systems, was acquired. Now known as Vivax-Metrotech Corporation, the new company’s goal is to use the most advanced technology to help our customers be more productive.

Vivax-Metrotech has a vast range of products to accurately locate buried cables and pipes and inspect the interior condition of metallic and non-metallic sewer pipes. We also offer a range of specialized products for locating faults on cathodic protected pipelines, telecom, and power cables. Tracing and identifying long distance fiber optic cables is possible using the Fiber Locate System (FLS). The SPAR 300 with RTK accuracy can map underground pipes and cables. From the industry’s first high frequency radio line tracer to today’s wide range of high performance, easy-to-use locating products and video inspection cameras, Vivax-Metrotech is acknowledged as a technology and customer service innovator.

We see tremendous opportunity in the market for underground locator technologies and camera systems. Deregulation and privatization trends demand more efficient construction methods. At the same time, technological advances offer ways to meet this rapidly emerging market demand. Vivax-Metrotech is in the process of expanding our infrastructure, particularly in the areas of research and development and new product design. We intend to leverage our Silicon Valley vantage point to stay on the forefront of innovations in sensor technology, analog and digital signal processing, electronic circuit design, industrial and mechanical design, user interface technology, application software, data connectivity and supply chain management.
