About 5H Technologies, Inc.

5H Tech was founded in January 2006 to provide environmental, ecological, and safety services to clients nationwide. Founders Crystal and David Hutcheson Jr. started their careers in the banking industry and with a large Department of Energy prime contractor before discovering their passion. While working for a consulting firm in New Jersey, David managed the company’s operations in Kentucky including a subcontract for environmental services at the Paducah Gaseous Diffusion Plant. In 2006, Crystal and David formed 5H Tech to provide similar environmental compliance, monitoring, and permitting services. The company then expanded its operations to include ecological, archaeological, and safety services. 5H Technologies, Inc. is an Economically Disadvantaged Women-Owned Small Business (EDWOSB). The firm emphasizes quality from project inception through project completion. Quality is more than just document review or field inspection. It’s in every aspect of the project planning, execution, and closeout. 5H Tech consultants are experienced and trained to ensure that stringent quality procedures are used for each and every unique project. The proactive approach to quality at all phases has led to recognition from government and commercial clients alike.
