Rooted with Trust. Built for the Future.

Otis Minnesota is rooted in two well-known legacy companies of Otis Eastern Service and Minnesota Limited. Joining together as one company allows Otis Minnesota Services to be a leading provider of transmission infrastructure services built on the core values of Safety, Quality, Commitment, and Reputation.

One Company Built on Trust

Otis Minnesota Services is built on the legacy companies Otis Eastern Service and Minnesota Limited.

Otis Eastern Service, founded in 1936, grew from a wellhead equipment supplier to a constructor of pipelines for midstream and transmission companies throughout the Northeast, as well as gathering systems for producers in the Appalachian Region.

Minnesota Limited began as a small, family-owned business in 1966, serving the natural gas distribution industry.

Joining together as one company allows Otis Minnesota Services to be a leading provider of transmission infrastructure services built on the core values of Safety, Quality, Commitment, and Reputation.

Our customers already know us, trust us and value the legacies we are built on. We are better together to provide extraordinary customer service and deliver the highest quality product and service to each project.

Building A Better Tomorrow

In partnership with our parent company Artera, we believe in the dignity of all human beings. We believe that diversity—be it race, ethnicity, religion, orientation, gender, age, background, experience or any other quality that makes each of us unique—adds depth and value to our team. We believe in an environment where every team member is included, respected and safe to share their thoughts and opinions. Discrimination and injustice have no place in our culture, our offices, or our job sites.
