Who We Are

Our mission is to connect Texas Contractors, increase safety and advocate our common issues in Austin.

NUCA is the only trade association dedicated solely to the utility and excavation construction industry. NUCA Texas offers our members the opportunity to build relationships, create unique business opportunities, stay up-to-date on the latest industry news, and participate in shaping industry-related legislation.

We welcome prospective members at events throughout the year.

Who We Are: About Us

Our History

Dating back to the 1970s, NUCA's roots in Texas are strong. In 2016, Texas re-chartered at the NUCA National Convention to stand independent from "Heavy Highway." Previous at-large National members, as well as North Texas members, automatically became members of NUCA Texas when they re-invested in NUCA for 2016. Today the Texas Chapter represents the interests of over 100 member companies on a spectrum of issues which matter most to the underground utility and excavation industry.

NUCA National, founded in 1964, is the nationwide network of state/regional Chapters and member companies representing utility contractors, excavators, suppliers, manufacturers, and other providers in the water, sewer, gas, electric, telecommunications, treatment plant, and excavation industries. NUCA has been the driving force behind improving conditions in the utility construction and excavation industry for over 50 years. Supporting both open-cut and trenchless contractors, NUCA continues to be the only voice dedicated exclusively to welfare, profitability, and improvement of the Underground Contractor Industry.
