Geotech Mastehead

February 2013

35 Years of Award Winning Excellence!

Geotech began as a specialty machine shop in 1956, and transitioned to an environmental equipment manufacturer in 1978 when invited by the United States Geological Survey (USGS) to partner with them in developing products and technologies for the emerging U.S. Trace Metals Analysis Program. As a result of this partnership, the bladder pumps, peristaltic pumps, 0.45-micron sampling filters, and filter holders developed by Geotech became groundwater industry standards. Innovative technology, superior workmanship, and a dedication to customer service keep Geotech at the forefront of the industry today.

Geotech Environmental Equipment, Inc. is now an international leader in the design, manufacture and distribution of equipment used for sampling, monitoring and remediating groundwater, air and soil pollution. State-of-the-art manufacturing, machining, and extrusion capabilities allow Geotech to innovate cost-effective solutions to tough environmental problems for our extensive list of international, government, consulting and private industry customers.

To better serve a rapidly growing clientele, regional service centers were opened in California, Florida, Michigan, North Carolina, Texas, and Vermont. These facilities are strategically located to provide fast, convenient, and comprehensive local training, equipment repair, calibration and maintenance as well as local delivery. In 2005 Geotech opened our European office in Barcelona, Spain, and in 2011 an office in Beijing, China. Geotech expanded in 2006 to the current 125,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility.

Geotech has adopted cost-saving “Lean Manufacturing” processes in production procedures, and uses direct input from clients for product development and improvement. Our clients' feedback results in better equipment to meet the demands of today’s environmental industry.

Coupled with ongoing product research and development, Geotech offers the most extensive line of equipment in the environmental field. Geotech’s vertically integrated approach focuses on continuous improvement to manufacturing processes, existing products, and new product design. Focused continuous identification and elimination of waste to increase efficiency in all processes keeps us competitive in the world economy and has allowed us to keep manufacturing here in Colorado while most manufacturing has been taken overseas. Currently Geotech has two patents pending for water sampling and remediation pumping devices. Geotech currently holds patents for several groundwater remediation technologies. Through our product development processes we have created a technology commercialization conduit. We have successfully commercialized several products born in university laboratories and licensed from private inventors. We help other local manufacturing companies compete by providing contract manufacturing services such as printed circuit board design, engineering and assembly.

35th Anniversary

This response to clients’ needs has also resulted in the recent expansion of Geotech’s rental inventory to include equipment for soil sampling, GPS locating, x-ray metals detection and Doppler water monitoring. Additionally, the acquisition of Universal Plastics, Inc. allows on-site production of plastic extrusion parts and products, including environmental-grade tubing, cores, rods and profiles, including food grade (NSF Certified, odorless and flavorless) parts.

Geotech currently has distribution in 100+ countries including Australia, Chile, France, Mexico, the Netherlands, the UK, and has sold to more than 20,000 companies worldwide. Geotech’s exporting efforts have resulted in numerous awards: 2010 Governor’s Award for Excellence in Exporting for Large Manufacturers, World Trade Center Denver 2011 Strategic Partner of the Year, US Department of Commerce Certificate of Excellence for Export Achievement in 2011. In addition, Geotech has also won awards for manufacturing: 2012 Colorado Company to Watch and 2012 Colorado Top Company for Manufacturing.

Geotech’s culture is family-oriented and multi-cultural. Geotech has raised funds for the Ronald McDonald House Charities in excess of $100,000. Geotech’s CEO, Jeff Popiel serves on the Executive Committee of the World Trade Center of Denver for which Geotech was awarded the Strategic Partner of the year award in 2011. He is also on the board of the Elyria Swansea Globeville Business Association (ESGBA) which improves the local community and economy. The ESGBA raises money annually for needy local families. Mr. Popiel is the founding president of the charter high school Provost Academy Colorado which brings STEM-focused curriculum to young people who are home schooled and other students in atypical situations. Finally, Geotech is involved with and supports the Office of Economic Development for the State of Colorado and the State of the Mayor’s office in Denver.

As we mark our 35th anniversary, we continue to build and support the industry with forward-looking products, philosophy and service. We strive to select representatives and distribution networks which supply the ever-growing international demand for our products. Our commitment to large inventories enable us to immediately ship equipment for sale or rent. We persistently improve our manufacturing facilities, our highly-trained service technicians, and our ability to provide what our clients want and need to ensure their own growth and profitability. Most of all, we will continue to provide the quality equipment needed for a safe and livable planet not only for our valued customers but for their families and future generations.

Geotech January 2013 Photo Competition Winner

Rachell Millet sampling groundwater Snow Cat transportation

Dallas Archibald, an environmental specialist with the JR Simplot Company, took these pictures of Rachell Millet sampling groundwater on a cold November day. "The well is 280’ deep with a dedicated SS-36 bladder pump system, YSI-556, In-Situ transducer and a 1000’ Geo-Tech water Level tape. I use the nitrogen tank that is mounted on the back of the Sno-Cat to operate the pump". A Geotech geocontrol 2 is also used to control the bladder pump.
