Geopier Foundation Co, a Davidson, N.C.-based leader in ground improvement solutions, has acquired Slope Reinforcement Technology LLC (SRT).
SRT offers the patented
Plate Pile method for slope reinforcement and repair, which provides slope
stabilization using an array of steel or aluminum elements driven into the
slope in a staggered array of uniformly spaced rows. The Plate Pile method
is particularly well-suited to rapidly and economically stabilize
shallow slides that occur on existing slopes.
“SRT is an ideal fit for us because of the
complementary solutions each company offers,” says
Kord Wissmann, president of Geopier. This combination allows
geotechnical engineers and project owners to take advantage of Geopier's
nationwide experience along with SRT's in-depth knowledge of slope repair
The Plate Pile system was
developed by Richard Short, an iconic figure in the geotechnical engineering
and foundation industry.
