GeoStabilization International® prides itself on the fact that we infuse our research and development efforts with a lot of company resources. This philosophy dates back to our founding with the idea that new and innovative tools allow for the best geohazard mitigation solutions. When Bob Barrett, P.G., and Al Ruckman, P.E., founded the company, they did so with a new technology: the Soil Nail Launcher™. They took a declassified British military cannon and engineered it to launch specialized SuperNails®. This revolutionized the industry. It allows for faster soil nail installation with a reduced impact on the environment, while saving the client time and money.
This ingenuity has been a strong company asset and, as the company has grown, led to the development of some of the most innovative geohazard mitigation tools in the industry. GeoStabilization leverages the skill and expertise of our personnel, and gives them the resources and freedom to explore new technologies. Our patented tools, to date, include: a fleet of over 50 Soil Nail Launchers™, the Biowall® System, ScourMicropiles™, and SuperNails®, and purpose-built limited access drill rigs.
