Years of Experience and Deep Austin Roots
Waterloo Surveyors has a long and established history, we've been in business for 14 years.
We believe if you enjoy your job, do good work and treat your clients like family, success will follow.
Derrick Dixon, our founder and President of the company, has been surveying since he was in high school, 25 years ago. He got his start in business working for his father, Tom, where he started out working on a survey crew summers and drafting during the school year. Tom Dixon now works for his son at Waterloo Surveyors.
Derrick was raised in Austin and went to UT. He's a native Austinite and a 15 year firefighter with the Austin Fire Department.
Brian Sumner, our operations manager, is also a native Austinite. He attended Texas State down the road in San Marcos.
Tom Dixon and Vince Boyce (our senior survey tech) are both from Corpus Christi although both have been living in Austin for over 30 years.
Waterloo Surveyors is like a big family, we have close ties that bind us together as a team. Vince and Tom are childhood friends and have been surveying together for over 30 years, Gregg , one of our crew chiefs, is married to Denise (his instrument operator). Most of us have been with Waterloo for many years, some since the beginning. Our employees don't just work together, we spend off hours together too (we even have a company band that gets together a couple times a month to "jam").
We are proud of our close ties to the community and the fact that our company is literally a family.
