Centuri Holdings, Inc.  is the holding company of a natural gas transmission and distributiion company.

Our Mission

Our mission is to be the leader in safe, sustainable utility infrastructure services, while fulfilling our roles as a values-driven employer of choice and a responsible corporate citizen in the communities in which we live and work.

Our Business

Centuri is a leading, pure-play North American utility infrastructure services company with over 110 years of operating history that partners with regulated utilities to maintain, upgrade and expand the energy network that powers millions of homes and businesses. We are a leader in utility infrastructure services and serve as long-term strategic partners to, and an extension of, North America’s electric, gas and combination utility providers, delivering a wide range of infrastructure solutions that ensure safe, reliable and environmentally sustainable grid operations. Our service offerings primarily consist of the modernization of utility infrastructure through the maintenance, retrofitting and installation of electric and natural gas distribution networks to meet current and future demands while also preparing systems for the transition to clean energy sources. We also serve complementary, attractive and growing end markets such as renewable energy and 5G datacom. Guided by our values and our unwavering commitment to serve as long-term partners to customers and communities, our more than 12,500 employees enable our customers to safely and reliably deliver electricity and natural gas and achieve their goals for environmental sustainability.

North America relies on electric and gas delivery infrastructure for the basic energy needs of homes and businesses and generally to maintain its dynamic economy, but existing infrastructure is subject to degradation and is often decades old. Despite significant recent investment, much of the existing electric grid and, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (“PHMSA”), more than 409,000 miles of gas main lines are more than 50 years old (including pipelines of unknown vintage) and in need of significant upgrade or replacement as of August 2023. Federal, state and local governments have increased regulatory stringency and enacted legislation to support the necessary infrastructure investments in the sector aimed at preventing disruption, enhancing safety and readying to meet current and future demands. Additionally, labor market constraints, the need for cost efficiency and a steadily declining utility workforce have led utilities to become increasingly reliant on outsourced utility service providers, creating an overall growing market well positioned for consolidation. We believe these trends represent a significant challenge for utilities, but also an opportunity for outsourced utility infrastructure services companies to build and maintain more efficient, sustainable infrastructure that can meet the needs of future generations.

We often serve as an extension of our diverse utility customer base’s workforce, which consists of more than 400 customers as of the date of this prospectus. Our customers are leading electric, gas and combination utility companies across North America, including American Electric Power, Enbridge, Entergy, Exelon, NiSource, National Grid, Sempra Energy and Southern Company, among others. We also contract with certain large-scale 5G datacom providers to support increased utilization of 5G and network expansion with the addition of C-band and small cells. Our top 10 and top 20 customers are almost exclusively investment grade utilities and represented 49% and 71% of our revenues, respectively, during fiscal 2023.

We have over 110 years of industry operating experience and a leading market share across a wide range of services in the electric and gas utility value chains. We believe our brand, scale, experience and fulsome service offerings compose the necessary profile to attract and retain the best talent and to competitively position ourselves among the largest providers in the sector, while prioritizing the safety of our employees, customers and other stakeholders. We place a strong emphasis on employee training and development and have implemented a robust safety program that strives to ensure that all projects are executed with the highest level of safety and quality standards.

We operate through a family of integrated companies that work together across different geographies allowing us to establish solid relationships and a strong reputation for a wide range of capabilities. Operating across the utility value chain allows us to address diverse customer initiatives, and our knowledge, expertise and resources enable us to deliver successful projects that meet these ever-evolving needs. Furthermore, the composition of our workforce, which includes both union and non-union field labor, enables us to access a wide range of opportunities across regions, customers and projects.

Our core operations are focused on modernizing utility infrastructure, which reduces risks of hazardous gas leaks, reduces methane emissions from natural gas pipelines, and hardens electric infrastructure from weather events, thereby increasing electric grid and delivery infrastructure resiliency, and improving overall safety, reliability, and sustainability of North American energy networks.
