A Brief History

We’ve been at it since 2013, and we’ve only just begun.
When our founders, Dr. Hai-Tien Yu and Edmund Kirby set out in 2013, they recognized the industry need for a knowledgeable, reliable partner who could develop turnkey technological solutions that solved the prevailing need for Geotechnical, Structural and Environmental monitoring. So, they put their heads – and their 50 years of collective experience in the industry – together and set forth to become that partner.

Today, we have grown into a trusted partner for hundreds of clients around the globe, providing world-class solutions that leverage the most advanced wireless technologies on the market. Our talented and experienced team delivers amazing results and provides unparalleled customer service and support. We have become well-known as the go-to source for wireless monitoring solutions…and we work hard every day to live up to that reputation.

Meet the Team – The Power of Teamwork

A team is stronger than its individual parts. That combined strength, however, is derived from the knowledge, skills and drive of each of the individuals on the team. At Specto Technology, we are a team of experienced professionals who put our heads together to solve problems and develop innovative solutions that make monitoring easier for our clients. There is no problem too big or too small!
