Company Background


In 1979, Reid Mullis and his wife Martha Sloop Mullis formed the company Reid Mullis Well and Pump Service, Inc. Reid and Martha, both livelong residents of Kannapolis, North Carolina, used the company to provide well drilling, pump work and commercial electrical work for their customers. Reid, a second-generation well drilling contractor, began work on the back of his father's well drilling rig when he was seven years old. His father was the owner and operator of Gile Mullis Well Drilling.

During the years, Reid and Martha's business transitioned to a broader base with the addition of municipal water and sewer services; industrial as well as commercial electrical and instrumentation and SCADA work. Reid has electrical, well drilling and pump installation certification with the State of North Carolina

In 2004, Reid established Gopher Utility Services, Inc. with his brother Edwin Mullis and his two sons - Benjamin and Charles - as officers of the company.
