URETEK Vision and Values

Note by Otso Lahtinen, President of URETEK 

URETEK is a contractor with global presence who invented the concept of non-disruptive ground engineering by injecting expanding geopolymer. Its patented processes are used worldwide, with more than 100,000 projects completed in residential, commercial and infrastructure sectors. With its high levels of technical expertise, combined with the quality of its work and more than 30 years’ experience, URETEK sets the standard for non-disruptive ground engineering.

URETEK is proud of its reputation and we are keen to preserve our market-leading position by continually developing ground engineering solutions which are both non-disruptive and durable over time. By increasing investment in research & development, we are providing our clients with quicker, less disruptive and more cost-effective solutions.

Our priority is to exceed customer expectations; URETEK is primarily chosen by its customers because of the added value its solutions create in geotechnical asset management. Our customers regularly report that the life span of a geotechnical asset has increased and operative maintenance costs significantly decreased after a URETEK solution has been applied. Our highly qualified engineers are always available to assess a structure, provide advice and support the client at all life-cycle stages of the structure.

We believe URETEK and the use of expansive geopolymer can be the ‘go-to’ ground engineering solution and also influence future design principles. We look forward to working with you.
