Portrait

GEOTEST is a diverse mix of seasoned experts, dynamic young professionals, experienced veteran practitioners and innovative inventors. As an independent limited company, our vision and values are shaped by our motivated staff.

Vision

It is our aim to be the leading Swiss provider of services in geosciences. For this reason, “innovation” and “development” are not just empty phrases for us, but part of our everyday life. In the future, we want to offer our customers complete solutions more frequently by coordinating projects from A to Z – without unnecessary coordination among multiple parties and loss of know-how.

Presence

Together with our subsidiary TERRE Ltd, we are present in all corners of Switzerland – with eight locations and around 180 employees. We are also active outside the country’s borders – for example at our second subsidiary GEOTEST Chile SpA in Santiago de Chile. We carry out around 15 percent of our contracts abroad. So far we have worked on projects in over 15 countries, for example in Chile, Bolivia, Peru, Iceland, Norway, Greece, China, Germany, Austria, Afghanistan and Saudi Arabia.

Culture

We aim to earn your trust, through careful problem analysis, individual consultations and comprehensive, customised solutions. In order to provide you with the best possible results, we consistently invest in the training of our employees, in innovations and in our infrastructure.

Last but not least, we offer our employees an attractive and diverse range of work activities. Our entire stock holding is owned by our senior staff, which guarantees our economic independence.

Values

GEOTEST is trustworthy, customer-oriented, quality-conscious and innovative.

These four basic values not only shape our understanding of service, but have also been defined and stipulated by our employees. A solid foundation is necessary for long-term success.

Customers

Our customers are from both the public and private sectors. We have enjoyed a long and productive cooperation with many of them.

Our customers include federal agencies (Switzerland/Germany/Austria), cantonal authorities, state offices (Germany/Austria), municipalities and communities, railway companies, mountain railways, power plant companies, engineering and architecture firms, mining businesses, banks, insurance firms, real estate companies, and private individuals.
