ConeTec and Geotech will combine their diverse range of drilling and testing capabilities to continue providing clients with safe, efficient, high-quality geotechnical, environmental, and mineral exploration services.

"We believe we are stronger together. The Geotech Group is a first-in-class speciality drilling contractor that we are proud to welcome to the ConeTec team," Jamie Sharp, ConeTec Group CEO, said. "Together, our expert people and innovative equipment will deliver increased capabilities across a broader region. We are excited about teaming up to better serve our clients throughout Canada."

"Since our inception in 1996, Geotech Drilling has focused on providing industry-leading drilling services, all while building a remarkable team of experts. We recognise these same values in ConeTec, and we are excited to begin working together" Jody Lambert, Geotech Drilling president, said. "Uniting the expertise and capabilities of our two organisations will create the opportunity for truly exceptional site characterisation services in the Canadian market."

The Geotech Group will remain operating under the same name, from the same office locations within Western Canada, and led by the same great team. However, Gregg Drilling and Testing Canada, the CPT division of Geotech, will change names to ConeTec. The Gregg Canada team, and equipment, will become a new Prince George-based business unit for the ConeTec brand.

Both Geotech and ConeTec groups are proud of their indigenous partnerships. The acquisition of the Geotech Group includes minority shares in Geotech Ekutak, an Inuit-controlled company based in the Kitikmeot region of Nunavut. Through Geotech Ekutak, the Mikisew-ConeTec Limited Partnership in the Fort McMurray region, along with valued working relationships with indigenous groups throughout Canada, ConeTec and Geotech hope to benefit local communities while supporting responsible natural resource development.
