STRATEGY DRIVING OUR ACTIONS

To best achieve its objectives, the company has made a strategic decision to position itself around highly sophisticated and advanced solutions. Technical intimacy with its customers is what provides Eddyfi/NDT with the necessary insights to fulfill its mission and develop the next generation of products and services. Since its inception, the company has identified organic initiatives and acquisitions based on their potential for advancing the cause of NDT. Moreover, the company has purposely sought to expand its portfolio of sensing techniques, while remaining deliberately agnostic towards specific modalities: no single NDT sensing technology can solve all the challenges of the industry. In fact, the group believes that new potential can be unlocked by combining various modalities. And as the business of NDT becomes a business of Data, the company’s software roadmap and machine-learning initiatives will ultimately contribute to new standards of performance and insights beyond the limits of today’s NDT.
