Geosonics Vibratech
(Vibration Consulting)
Vibra-Tech Engineers, Inc. began in 1949 as a partnership under the name of Vibration Engineering Company. Dr. L. Don Leet, one of the original founders, developed the first three-component portable seismograph used to measure blast vibration effects. The first notable use of this seismograph was in 1944 to measure the ground vibration effects of the first atomic test blast in New Mexico. The company itself was born in the anthracite coal regions of Pennsylvania, which at that time used more explosives than anywhere in the world. It began in response to the growing number of complaints about blasting vibrations from property owners near mining operations. Dr. Leet, who offered an impressive combination of academic credentials, knowledge of explosives, and communication skills, was joined by Robert L. Klotz, who assumed management of the company. The two men turned the fledgling company into one of the most technologically advanced authorities in protective services for both explosive users and the public. Its first office in Hazleton, Pennsylvania is still the corporate headquarters.
In 1995, Vibra-Tech Engineers, Inc. and GeoSonics, Inc. formed an alliance specializing in seismograph manufacturing, vibration services, noise control and blasting seismology.
