Québec City, Canada, July 28, 2014 — Eddyfi inaugurated the opening of its new US facility in Texas last week and the creation of Eddyfi Corp, a new and fully-owned subsidiary of Eddyfi NDT, Inc.
The new 3000 sq. ft facility is located in Deer Park, near Houston, Texas, and offers sales, application development and support, as well as product services. The company’s modern and spacious facility is equipped with an applications laboratory, a meeting/training room, a calibration and repair laboratory, and a tubing probe storage area.
“Our US investment and expansion demonstrates Eddyfi’s commitment to the world’s largest NDT market. After 4.5 years of operation, now over 100 employees, and a significant US customer base, Eddyfi simply had to expand south of the Canadian border. This new base will allow us to attract and hire the best industry experts. In addition, this new entity allows Eddyfi to transact as a US company, and offer calibration services and product delivery without cross-border logistics and customs issues,” said Martin Thériault, President and CEO of Eddyfi.
Eddyfi began as a supplier of surface inspection ECA technologies to the power generation market, but expanded about three years ago into the oil & gas market. The company has rapidly penetrated the market and has identified several technological opportunities that will fuel its organic growth. Beyond its central location, ease and competitive cost of doing business, Eddyfi chose the great state of Texas and Deer Park for its new facility to be at the heart of the oil & gas industry.
“More importantly, Eddyfi’s local presence will allow us to increase the proximity and level of technical intimacy with the most advanced users in the market. It will boost Eddyfi’s relevance and provide opportunities to develop innovative products that will in turn allow Eddyfi to continue on its mission to push the limits of electromagnetic NDT,” added Thériault.
Headquartered in the advanced NDT hub of Québec, Canada, with offices in Lyon, France; and Houston, USA; Eddyfi focuses on offering high-end eddy current and electromagnetic solutions for the inspection of critical components and assets. Eddyfi has customers in more than 50 countries in such major industries as nuclear, power generation, oil & gas, and aerospace.
We also employ the world’s most renowned experts in the field of advanced eddy currents and electromagnetics, and they have the mission to push the limits of these technologies to new heights. Eddyfi develops the industry’s best performing and most reliable test instruments, acquisition and analysis software, as well as standard but, more importantly, specialized surface array and tubing probes. Eddyfi has the expertise, engineering, and manufacturing flexibility to supply fully integrated and specially made solutions that deliver superior performance to our customers. At Eddyfi, performance matters.
