History

A brief history of the Company GEOtest, a.s.

1968 | GEOtest, n.p.

  • Foundation of the national enterprise GEOtest

    Geotest, n.p. was founded by the disintegration of the statewide operating national enterprise Inženýrskogeologický a hydrogeologický průzkum Žilina (Engineering and Hydrogeological Survey Žilina). The activities of the newly established enterprise included hydrogeological, engineering-geological and geotechnical surveys, especially in the territory of Moravia.
  • Complex organisational structure

    GEOtest, n.p. was a complex enterprise with approximately 1,200 employees. Organisationally, it was divided into 5 separate plants (a drilling plant, a plant of technical activities, a plant of special foundation engineering, an engineering plant and a geological service at the level of a plant). Because of its wide scope, it was capable of ensuring any contract in whole, including logistics, in the above-mentioned fields, not only in the then Czechoslovakia, but also abroad.
  • Extensive foreign activities

    In the 1970s and 1980s, GEOtest then operated in many countries (e.g. in Cuba, Algeria, Peru, Mongolia, Somalia, Iran and Bangladesh). This particularly concerned large projects in engineering geology, geotechnics and in special foundation engineering.

1990 | GEOtest, s.p.

  • Delimitation of the national enterprise GEOtest

    In 1990, individual plants were delimited and the whole then Geological Service remained as GEOtest s.p.
