ATLANTA — Tensar Corporation’s Geopier Foundation Company subsidiary acquired Slope Reinforcement Technology, LLC (SRT). The acquisition allows Geopier to offer slope stabilization solutions while boosting SRT’s market reach. Geopier has historically focused on providing vertical ground reinforcement in support of foundations and their structures. SRT has concentrated on slopes that have failed or are potentially unstable.
The partnership supplements Geopier’s portfolio, which includes the Rammed Aggregate Pier (RAP) Systems. SRT offers the patented Platepile method for slope reinforcement and repair, which provides slope stabilization using an array of steel or aluminum elements driven into the slope in a staggered array of uniformly spaced rows.
