About Earth Systems

Geoff Beardall, Sam Pratt, and Rick Ofsanko began the environmental services firm Earth Systems, Inc. in 1999 with an office in Jacksonville, Florida. The company was founded to provide more responsive yet more cost effective consulting services than multi-national enviornmental firms are able to provide.  The company’s mission is to improving the lives of those around us with our attitude and ability. Our corporate vision is to steadily grow a company that people enthusiastically belong to and enjoy building.

In validation of Earth Systems’ business approach, the firm has flourished.  Since 1999, we’ve added offices in Lantana, Tampa, and Tallahassee, Florida; Burnsville, North Carolina; Bismarck, North Dakota; and Belmar, New Jersey.  Meanwhile, we’ve grown from a staff of three geologist to a group of over 60 environmental professionals serving all sectors of the environmental industry. We have earned the respect and trust of our clients, regulators, and subcontractors. We have been Hess Corporation’s environmental consultant since 2000, an FDEP Bureau of Petroleum Storage Systems Contractor since 2004, and an FDEP Bureau of Waste Cleanup Contractor since 2011. Most recently, Earth Systems was awarded contracts with Whiting Petroleum Corporation, Hess Exploration & Production, Emerald Oil, XTO Energy, and Zavannah for environmental support in the Bakken Oil Field of North Dakota.
