Miller Pipeline buys Carolina pipeline company

Miller Pipeline Corp., the pipeline contractor owned by Evansville-based Vectren Corp., has acquired a small pipeline contractor in Greenville, S.C., for an undisclosed price, Miller said yesterday.

The South Carolina firm, E&M Pipeline, has 35 workers.

E&M pushes Indianapolis-based Miller into its 22nd state. Most of Miller’s work is in Indiana and Ohio.

The acquisition brings Miller employment to 1,460, including about 600 in Indiana.

Vectren, headquartered in Evansville, supplies electricity and natural gas in most of central Indiana outside the Indianapolis area.
