The year 2012 confirms the growth of Predictive Image in the non-destructive control market by ultrasound and X-ray.
After working for nearly 20 years in acoustic microscopy and 15 years in X-ray in various companies, Isaline Richard decided to set up her own non-destructive control consulting and analysis company in 2010. Specializing in the characterization of materials to solve assembly problems, Predictive Image intervenes both on point analyses but also on post-production controls. Today, the young company proudly announces growth of more than 50%, with a turnover achieved in 2012 of nearly 400K.
"The success we are experiencing reflects our clients' expressed desire to enhance their quality policy, a real strategic issue in ultra-competitive sectors such as microelectronics, aeronautics, automotive or armaments. Our technology diagnostics and advice are aimed at improving performance, and therefore their competitiveness," explains Isaline Richard, the company's chief executive.
In 2012, a dozen companies joined Predictive Image, joining prestigious clients such as CEA, Schneider Electric and Thales, who also renewed their confidence.
What's new in 2012
To support its growth, the company moved last year to a larger premises comprising 150 sqm divided between the design office and the laboratory. Last year also corresponds to the launch of the new website, showcase of services and sectoral applications. Finally, Isaline Richard was awarded the Women's Business Services Award among 156 applicants: "It is the recognition of a little-known profession and the difficulty of the journey to achieve it. This trophy is a real incentive to continue and increase our activity,"commented the laureate.
New ambitions for 2013
The company's goal is to develop both its service delivery and in situ analysis activities. "Our know-how lies in our technological intelligence, it seemed natural to us to offer the same on-site services associated with our maintenance services," says the manager. Another strategic challenge is to strengthen its first successes in the optics and medical markets.
