About us...


Our Story

40 years ago Dr. Joram Amir, the founder of Piletest, began using NDT (Non Destructive Testing) to perform quality assurance for deep foundations.

Back then, at the late 1970's, he used an equipment which was cumbersome and required two people connected by a 100m long data cable. These field experiences, quickly led him to harness state-of-the-art technologies and develop a compact, lightweight and outdoor capable solutions - the PET (Pile Echo Tester).

Together with his son Erez Amir (a software engineer) and a team of electronics engineers, he incorporated Piletest.com Ltd. 20 years ago. Piletest.com is the most innovative player in the pile testing industry, as can be seen by the following achievements:

  • 1st PC-based pile echo tester
  • 1st pile echo tester with digital sensor
  • 1st PC-based ultrasonic cross hole tester
  • 1st pile echo tester with wireless sensor
  • 1st pile echo tester with Android data logger and real-time communication
  • 1st miniature light-weight Borehole Inclination Tester

Our DNA

Piletest is a family-owned company which manages things in an informal very direct way keeping transparency and accountability above all. Piletest focuses strictly on the development of pile testing system and does not offer testing services. Piletest is built with a long-term vision meaning that winning customer business loyalty comes first. For that purpose we are fast on delivery, prompt on service, invest long time on development just to make things a little simpler to use and build our products to last with a 3 year warranty as standard. We can offer that, because our products withstand extreme heat, vibrations and water resistance tests before being shipped to customers. At Piletest all products come with 10 years free software upgrades. Piletest systems, are the easiest, most productive and fastest to operate in the field, as can be read from from our customers testimonials. The ease of use knowhow, is based on our years of field work before we started designing our own equipment and on continuously integrating customer feedback.
