The Geotech Group of Companies, including Gregg Drilling and Testing Canada Ltd., have built relationships within the communities we’ve worked for over 20 years.
Geotech recognizes the importance of developing and maintaining healthy community relations and believes this is essential to the Company’s current and future success, and while Geotech has worked informally with many Indigenous groups on many projects on a regular basis. Since 2013 Geotech has made many more formal agreements and efforts to be a leader within the drilling industry sector.
The intent of these relationships is to ensure sustainable and responsible business and economic development opportunities in the regions that lead to job creation, training, and business opportunities for the local Indigenous members. While our agreements with our partners typically include preferential hiring of local community members while working in their territory, we encourage employees to work in all areas in which we work.
