About Uretek

In 2000, Marc Spencer and Scott Turnage partnered to form one of the first affiliates of URETEK USA, the original patent on the process of using polyurethane foam to stabilize soil and lift foundations. For over 20 years, URETEK DFW has put thousands of customers in control of their concrete slab lifting problems, saving them millions of dollars in costly repairs, downtime, and disruption.

As entrepreneurs, Marc and Scott recognized the growth potential of using polyurethane to address soil issues prevalent in the region, aiming to establish a work environment that people would truly appreciate. Their journey began with a small team dedicated to serving clients in North Texas, Oklahoma, and Arkansas, later expanding into Central Texas. Many of the original team members remain integral parts of the URETEK family to this day.

Over the course of our history, we’ve consistently innovated, experimented, and pivoted, solidifying URETEK as the premier provider of polyurethane geotechnical services. The combined strength of our team’s technical expertise, unparalleled experience, and unwavering dedication has consistently delivered successful results for our customers, many of whom have been with us since the beginning.

In 2021, URETEK caught the attention of Cultivate Venture Partners, led by CEO Troy Austin. Seeking a business with a stellar reputation, a unique product, and a team of long-term employees, Troy found the perfect match in URETEK South. 

Fast forward to early 2024, Groundworks, the nation’s leading and fastest-growing foundation and concrete-lifting solutions company, acquired URETEK South. As the largest concrete poly lifting company in America, the synergy between URETEK South and Groundworks is a natural and strategic fit. This partnership unites two category leaders, poised to offer the most trusted commercial and residential poly solutions in the nation.

This alignment positions URETEK South to cater to a growing customer base and meet the rising demand for our innovative solutions for years to come.
