|Québec, December 10, 2015 — Eddyfi inaugurates its new UAE facility in Abu Dhabi, which marks the creation of Eddyfi International LLC, a new and fully-owned subsidiary of Eddyfi NDT, Inc.
This new facility is located near the Abu Dhabi international airport and will offer sales, technical support, calibration, and repair services in a very convenient business sector of the United Arab Emirates’ capital.
“This latest investment and expansion into the UAE demonstrates Eddyfi’s continuing commitment to the world’s NDT market. After expanding into France in 2012 and into the US last year, the next logical step was to expand into the Middle East region. This new base of operations will enable Eddyfi to get closer to its clients, attract local talent and industry experts, as well as provide the highly required product support and calibration services in the region,” 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 four years ago into the oil & gas market. The company has rapidly penetrated the market and identified several technological opportunities that have been fueling its organic growth. Beyond its convenient location, ease and competitive cost of doing business, Eddyfi chose Abu Dhabi for its new offices to be at the heart of the oil & gas industry in the Middle East region.
“Eddyfi’s local presence will increase the proximity and level of technical intimacy with users in the region,” said Keith Sinclair, Sales Manager in charge of the new Abu Dhabi office. “It will further improve Eddyfi’s efficiency and open up new opportunities for innovative products that will in turn allow us to continue on our mission to push the limits of electromagnetic NDT.”
Headquartered in the advanced NDT hub of Québec, Canada, with offices in France, USA, and the UAE, Eddyfi focuses on offering high-performance 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.
