Company History

GEMTEC Limited was founded in 1986 as a geotechnical engineering, materials testing, and hydrogeology firm. Today, GEMTEC Limited is an employee-owned company with multiple offices and labs throughout Atlantic Canada, with more than 100 full-time engineers, scientists, technical personnel, and support staff.

Our Experience

GEMTEC is founded on solid technical expertise, and the experience of our specialists. We have made significant contributions to engineering works throughout the Maritime Provinces, and we're often called upon to provide solutions for challenging and complicated engineering projects.

GEMTEC has always used the latest innovations in technology; in fact, we were the first New Brunswick company in Atlantic Canada to use a pile driving analyzer (PDA), a piezocone, and a seismic cone. Our customized laboratory software was developed in-house and is unique to the engineering field. We also use industry-leading finite difference and finite element software programs, such as Visual MODFLOW and GeoStudios, which can be used for groundwater modeling, stress and deformation analysis, and slope stability analysis.

Community Involvement

GEMTEC is a proud and active supporter of our local communities. Our staff are involved in minor sports, as coaches and administrative personnel.

Annual APEGNB igloo-building competition

GEMTEC staff in Fredericton helped start Winterfest, which is now one of the best-attended recreational events in the Fredericton area.

Our staff in Grand Falls started an annual igloo-building competition to raise money for local engineering students — an event which saw one of the igloos entered into the Guinness World Record Book as the largest igloo ever constructed.

Annually, we help fund local minor hockey teams, and contribute to many other worthy and charitable causes.
