Precision Underground was started in 2008 by Christopher Ryckman and Sara Peterson. The business is now owned by Sara Peterson and Tyler Blauert.

Precision started small by installing rural water lines in Burleigh, Dunn, and McKenzie Counties in ND. Gradually, the business established relationships with rural electric cooperatives in western North Dakota installing power cable and has developed relationships with pipeline contractors in the Bakken as well as telecommunication companies throughout North Dakota. The business continues to focus on growth in the boring and plowing operations.

Chris grew up on a farm near Pollock, SD. Prior to starting the company, he worked in the pipeline industry working on many different pipeline projects throughout the United States. He loved the opportunity to travel and see the different landscapes of the country. When he moved to Bismarck in 2008, he used that work experience and purchased a small boring machine and a backhoe to start the Company along with Sara. Chris retired from the company the end of 2022.

Sara grew up on a farm near Milton, ND. She graduated from NDSU with a degree in Business Administration. She started working for Gate City Bank in 1997 and was involved with many different roles at the bank including Teller, Loan Officer, Customer Relationship Supervisor, and Compliance. While working at the Bank she also did the administrative work for Precision Underground. In February 2015 Sara left the bank after 17 years to become the General Manager.

Tyler grew up near Frazee, MN. He started working for Precision Underground as a Laborer in 2013. He had previous underground operations experience working for a telecommunications company in Minnesota. At Precision he quickly stepped into a leadership position as a Foreman in 2014 and the Project Manager in Dickinson by 2015. His dedication and commitment to the company made it an easy decision for Chris and Sara to ask him to become an owner of the business in 2019.
