Geotex Company was incorporated in 1990 by a group of investors, which included Rich Clark, to perform underground storage tank removal in Central Ohio. Due to significant competition, Rich realized this business model would not prove to be profitable in the long term. In July 1992, Rich and two of the original investors formed Geotex Construction Services, Inc. The new entity was created to provide site development services on small to medium-sized commercial construction projects in Central Ohio.
Geotex was built on Rich’s belief in three core values: Quality, Integrity, and Safety. Rich knew that Geotex's success would be solely dependent on the efforts of our dedicated employees. Many of those people who helped Geotex grow are still employed today.
In 2017, Rich converted Geotex into a 100% employee-owned company. At the end of 2019, Rich stepped down from his position as CEO and turned the company over to the employees that helped build the company.
Currently, Geotex is continuing to grow under new leadership but maintains the founding core values of Quality, Integrity, and Safety. Family was added to the list of core values in 2021 to help recognize Geotex's employee-owned culture and to continue with Rich’s legacy of taking care of his people.
Through employee ownership, we are a family that strives to exceed customer expectations by working closely with owners, engineers, and other contractors to produce high-quality results in a professional manner.
In order to provide the best possible excavating services to our customers, we have established four values that we apply to every project:
Quality | Integrity | Safety | Family
These four values allow us to produce quality work in a safe environment that is enjoyable to be in. We exceed customer expectations by working closely with owners, engineers, and other contractors to produce high-quality results in a professional manner within the constraints of ever-demanding project schedules.
