One of TOHL's solutions utilizes coiled tubing deployed via helicopter to rapidly connect remote water sources to their destinations. TOHL is also able to capture value in the commercial and industrial sectors. TOHL's first base of operations is in Santiago, Chile, and headquarters are in Atlanta, GA. The founders have a bold vision for global expansion into territories beyond Latin America.
