From a storefront on East Huron Street in downtown Buffalo, New York with a single wood preservative patent that narrowly escaped Nazi Germany, Osmose has emerged as a well-known and respected international company; a world leader in the manufacture of wood preservatives and a leading service provider safeguarding North American utility and railroad infrastructure.
Since that humble beginning in 1934, Osmose has continued to meet evolving customer needs. Today, Osmose Utilities Services, Inc - one of several Osmose companies - provides a wide variety of inspection, maintenance and rehabilitation services and products to electric and telecommunications utilities. Osmose Utilities Services, Inc is now headquartered in Tyrone, in suburban Atlanta, Georgia.
America's utilities have learned that Osmose is one source with many solutions. Whether the need is pole inspectors to apply remedial treatment, crews to assist with post-storm recovery, or engineers to perform complex connectivity surveys and build accurate network models, Osmose can help. With 75 years of diverse experience and learning as a foundation, Osmose is proud to serve America's utilities as they manage aging infrastructure and design and build tomorrow's intelligent utility.

In 2009, Osmose Utilities Services acquired the Hawaii utility construction company, Ikaika, Inc (pronounced ē-ki-ka). Ikaika's services include overhead and underground utility construction and repair services, civil site work, and general masonry. Like Osmose, Ikaika has built a solid reputation with its customers for safety, quality, and dependability. The combination of Ikaika's installation and construction services with Osmose's inspection and maintenance offerings improves the efficiency of service delivery to utilities throughout the islands.

As broadband infrastructure continues to emerge as the ideal solution for reliably transmitting the real-time data required to support smart grid projects, Osmose seeks to offer customers enhanced solutions related to fiber deployment. In September of 2011, Osmose Utilities Services acquired two telecommunications engineering firms - BBCom, LLC and TelPlexus, LLC. In January of 2013, these two firms were merged to create Osmose Communications Services. Osmose Communications serves independent, cooperative, and investor-owned telecommunications companies and electric utilities, providing engineering services for OSP, ISP, data solutions, project management, construction management, staff augmentation, and turnkey solutions for engineering design, construction, and installation.
