Founder Jay Heck, Sr. introduced laser profiling and laser stockpile measurement to the U.S. in 1988. Quarrytech Inc. was formed in 2001. He and his son, J.R. Heck, continued to improve this technology, developing the software and procedures to make stockpile measurement more accurate and efficient. The Hecks pioneered the use of mobile LiDAR technology in the industry and helped revolutionize the way that data is captured.
The name change to Firmatek in 2011 was inspired by the demand for such technology in all industries that deal with the measurement and movement of earth.
To meet the growing demand for Firmatek’s services, we built a great team that shares the work ethic and attention to quality that has set Firmatek apart in its approach to business. We have grown from one man in 2001 to more than thirty people today.
