Our Story
pic17.jpg

Geotron UK Ltd. was founded in 2002 by the collaboration of a UK based team with an environmental consultancy background and Geotron International B.V., an established Dutch drilling contractor operating internationally on environmental and geotechnical drilling programmes since 1989. The result was a UK-based independent company offering a range of technical site services to clients throughout the UK and the Republic of Ireland.

Operating initially with a single site crew, the company has grown year on year currently working with a team in excess of 30 site operatives, engineers, managers and support staff. We have continually added to our fleet of rigs, transport trucks and support vehicles ensuring we are always at the forefront of drilling technology.

Our Team

Geotron UK comprises a team of over 30 staff including 12 site based crews (drilling teams and groundwork/vacuum excavation crews) and office-based support and management staff, all dedicated to keeping projects running smoothly, supporting our site crews and serving the needs of our clients throughout the lifecycle of a project.

Geotron's senior management team has over 120 years combined experience in the environmental and geotechnical site investigation and geotechnical contracting field. We are keen to bring new recruits into the industry, whether it be working in a site-based role or in a support and management capacity.  Geotron offers the necessary training, assessment and CPD to ensure the whole team provides a high quality, technically capable, collaborative and responsive service.
