Danella Acquires Florida-Based Viking Utility Services

Viking Utility Services

Danella has expanded its reach and expertise with the acquisition of Viking Utility Services. The Florida-based licensed electrical contractor specializes in the installation and repair of underground utilities, including power and communication infrastructure.

“The team at Viking Utility Services has improved utility infrastructure throughout Southern Florida,” notes James Danella, Danella Chairman/CEO. “We are excited to add the Viking team to our growing organization, and to offer their employees the support of all of the Danella Companies. Growth is key for Danella, and we look forward to growing in Southern Florida.”

Over ten years in business, Viking Utility Services has cemented itself as one of the most reliable underground contractors in Southern Florida.  Viking provides turnkey, cost-effective electrical and utility construction services with a focus on safety and talent training. Core capabilities include new construction development infrastructure, overhead to underground electric conversion, communications (fiber, coax, FTTX), directional drilling, and locating services.

Joining Forces

Harold and Dawn Paris, Viking’s founders, look forward to a future as part of the Danella family of companies.

“It makes sense for Danella and Viking to join forces. We found that our commitment to quality workmanship and controlled steady growth aligned perfectly with Danella’s. We’ve worked hard for ten years to build the best team in the underground utility services industry. We are excited for the new growth opportunities, especially now that Viking is a Danella Company.”

Viking officially joined the Danella family on January 31, 2020. Viking now becomes a part of the larger Danella organization. Danella includes Danella Construction, Danella Construction Corp. of FL, Danella Power Services, Danella Line Services, Danella Rental Systems, and many more.
