GEOMAT was founded in late 2003 by George A. Madrid when he purchased the Farmington branch office of AMEC. George ran the company as President and Principal Engineer until 2015.  Under George’s guidance, GEOMAT became one of the predominate and respected geotechnical engineering, civil/mining engineering, and materials testing firms in the Four Corners area. His philosophy was simple “take care of clients and the business will take care of itself.” This philosophy was foundational to the culture and growth of the business and is fundamental to how GEOMAT continues to operate today. Despite being a small company, GEOMAT was able to work with and complete numerous successful projects with many large national companies including being recognized by Arizona Public Service in 2011 for services provided at the Four Corners Power Plant. GEOMAT also provided extensive engineering and testing services to BHP Billiton at the San Juan Mine in Fruitland, NM. GEOMAT completed over 2,400 projects in southwestern United States between 2004 and 2015.
George was a well-respected engineer and businessman within the engineering community in the Four Corners and State of NM. But perhaps his greatest attribute and legacy was his ability to inspire and mentor those around him. This inspiration and mentorship lives on in company leadership today. In 2015, George sold GEOMAT to Thomas F. Madrid as the majority shareholder and Matthew J. Cramer, P.E. as a minority shareholder. Thomas had been with the company since 2008 and was instrumental in the company’s success holding the positions of Construction Services Manager and Accounting Manager until becoming company President in 2015.  Under Thomas’s leadership, GEOMAT continued its success adding numerous clients and services including contract drilling leading to the purchase of the CME-55 that is in operation today. Thomas was also an active member of Leadership NM and San Juan Rotary and obtained is MBA from the University of Denver.
In 2018, Thomas sold his shares of the company to Matthew J. Cramer, P.E. who had held the position of Structural/Geotechnical Engineer and Vice President until becoming President and sole owner of the company.  Since becoming President, Matt has continued the success and growth of the company. His vision for the company has included updating the company technology by moving away from paper reporting and scheduling to digital reporting and scheduling. In May 2020, GEOMAT started an office in Albuquerque, New Mexico to better serve clients across the State. In addition, Nathan Compton P.E. and Aaron Ezzell, P.E. were brought on as Associate Partners with the firm.  GEOMAT has since continued to provide quality engineering and testing services growing to over 50 employees.
GEOMAT and its employees actively participate in the communities in which we are a part of.  We have participated in numerous community outreach programs including the Farmington Municipal Schools Work-Based Learning program and Mathcounts Programs to name a few.   GEOMAT also supports scholarships for student interested in the STEM fields.
In addition, GEOMAT strongly encourages employee community involvement by its employees both within and outside of the engineering field.  Some of the organizations in which GEOMAT employees have been involved (or held leadership positions) in are:
  • National Society of Professional Engineers (NSPE)
  • American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE)
  • Geoprofessional Business Association (GBA)
  • Farmington Soccer Club
