St. Louis, MO (January 31, 2014) – Geotechnology, Inc., a leading provider of geotechnical and environmental engineering, geophysics, water resource management, materials testing, and drilling services, is celebrating an historic milestone in 2014—it’s 30th year in business.

The company was founded in 1984 by Mike Alizadeh, John Baker, Ron Eckelkamp, Pat Goeke, Don McQueen and Rich Frueh (not pictured).  All professional engineers, their mission was clear: to fill the need for a highly responsive and technically talented St. Louis-based geotechnical engineering firm.

“The success of today’s Geotechnology, Inc. is a testament to the vision and dedication of these men who never lost their focus on responsiveness and quality when it came to our clients,” said Ed Alizadeh, President and CEO, Geotechnology, Inc.

It was that focus on delivering quality customer service that enabled the firm to expand its footprint, adding locations in Illinois in 1997, Kansas City in 2002 and Memphis in 2010.  The company employs 153 associates.

As Geotechnology marks its third decade in business, the company proudly boasts of being the market leader in Middle America, and continues to invest in equipment and personnel.  In fact, Geotechnology just purchased a new Cone Penetration Testing (CPT) Rig, becoming the only geotechnical services firm in the region to own such equipment.

The company plans a yearlong celebration to mark the anniversary.  The firm has commissioned a new 30th Anniversary Logo, which will be used on all internal and external company materials, including a new advertising campaign focusing on Geotechnology’s history and success.  Special events are also planned throughout the year at each of Geotechnology’s offices in Illinois, Kansas City, Memphis and St. Louis.

Said Alizadeh, “I want to take this opportunity to thank our clients, shareholders, associates, and industry partners for helping Geotechnology achieve this important milestone. As we look forward to the next 30 years, we promise to continue to work diligently to fulfill our mission ‘To be a trusted advisor to our clients and a leader in our communities’.”
