Ingenjörsfirman Geotech is a world-leading manufacturer of advanced probes, rigs and other geotechnical field equipment, dedicated to lead the development of equipment and software for soil investigations.
Since 1970, Geotech has been ensuring that geotechnical personnel are equipped with adequate and precise methods to reach required standards set for geotechnical surveys.
The company was built by Per Jonell and Peter Örtendahl on experiences from exploring the sensitive clays of the Gothenburg area, using methods as Swedish Weight Sounding and Nilcon Vane Testing. More products and methods were developed in close cooperation with the Geotechnical department of Chalmers University of Technology and other members of the geotechnical community. Geotech is still run by members of the Örtendahl family.
