Who We Are
PRS (Professional Reinforcement Solutions) Geo – Technologies®, is a global geotechnical engineering company that helps build the future, where every corner of the world is accessible. We combine technology with expertise, to design and deliver proven solutions for load support, slope protection, earth retention and landfill applications.
PRS operates in 75 countries with thousands of successful project implementations for leading international companies.
The very heart of our technology is a strong and most durable cellular confinement system for soil stabilization, called Neoloy® Geocell. For over 20 years our engineering and manufacturing divisions have gained unique expertise in designing, manufacturing and implementing geocell solutions.
When using PRS-Neoloy Geocell solutions, you’ll be able build better roads, on any challenging ground, while saving at least 50% of the cost and time required for your project.
On top of it, we believe advanced technologies should be green — that is why our solutions are based on utilizing marginal land and recycled materials. So, when using our solution, you’ll be using less asphalt, less aggregate layers, and use any locally available materials for structural infill.
We have succeeded in combining sustainability and technology for the 21st century, to pave better roads with less resources and time.
Our Story – The Evolution of Geocells
In the 1980’s geocells started to be used for commercial applications using High Density Polythelyn (HDPE) (read more about geocell evolution here). Realizing that HDPE geocells were lacking engineering methods and properties required for long term use, and with the emergence of new polymer technolgoies, in 1996 PRS embarked an extensive R&D program with world renowned geotechnical experts to develop a Novel Polymer Alloy (NPA) called – Neoloy®. Known as ‘Tough Cells’, the Neoloy Geocells provide superior engineering characteristics – high elastic stiffness, resistant to plastic deformation (creep) and high tensile strength, which are suitable for heavy-duty and long term use.
PRS-Neoloy Geocell Proven Technology By Leading Experts
Neoloy Geocell engineering performance has been researched, tested and validated with world renowned geotechnical experts and academic research institutes. The result of this research was over 55 professional published papers on Neoloy (NPA) geocells and projects in the last 10 years. The collaborative testing program included leading institutes and authority’s around the world, such as the US Federal Highway Administration (FHA) and state Departments Of Transportation (DOTs), the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA), RZD Russian National Railways, KOAC-NPC Road Standards Institute, Indian Roads Congress and additional standards, geosynthetics and transportation agencies worldwide.
