30 Years of CPT Industry Leadership
Vertek is the world leader in the development and manufacturing of advanced in-situ soil testing apparatus. Vertek has over 30 years of research and development experience in building and developing new CPT technologies. In 2005 Vertek acquired the Hogentogler & Co. line of CPT equipment, bringing together two leaders in CPT technology. Vertek’s R&D capabilities, coupled with Hogentogler's manufacturing and soil testing expertise, has helped to cement our place as the leading CPT company in the world.
Vertek is currently the largest domestic manufacturer of cone penetrometer equipment, as well as a supplier of in-situ environmental testing equipment for soil, soil gas, soil water sampling and monitoring, and related delivery and support vehicles. Over the past 30 years we have sold over 200 systems for onshore and offshore applications in both the domestic and international markets. These systems vary from simple drill rig mounted equipment to complex geotechnical and environmental testing rigs.
Vertek has partnered with leading universities in continuing research and development of new technology and methods of soil testing. This has lead to the commercialization of emerging technologies with a focus on ease of use, cost effectiveness and precise measurement.
Vertek's technical ability is multi-disciplined with engineers in electronics, hydraulics, mechanical, software development and basic and applied physics. Because we employ personnel with such wide ranging capabilities in-house, we are able to integrate our probes, pushing platforms and data acquisition/reduction into a single seamless solution. In addition, we have the ability to customize our products to suit unique customer requirements.
