2012 confirmed Predictive Image's growth in the ultrasonic and X-ray non-destructive testing market.
After working for nearly 20 years in acoustic microscopy and 15 years in X-ray radiography with various companies, Isaline Richard decided to set up her own non-destructive testing consultancy and analysis company in 2010. Specializing in the characterization of materials to solve assembly problems, Predictive Image works on both one-off analyses and post-production controls. Today, the young company proudly announces growth of over 50 %, with 2012 sales of almost €400K.
"Our success reflects our customers' desire to make the most of their quality policy, which is a strategic issue in highly competitive sectors such as microelectronics, aeronautics, automotive and defense. Our diagnostics and technological advice are aimed at improving performance, and therefore competitiveness, explains company manager Isaline Richard.
In 2012, a dozen companies signed up alongside Predictive Image, joining prestigious customers such as CEA, Schneider Electric and Thalès, who also renewed their trust.
New products of 2012
To support its growth, last year the company moved into larger premises comprising 150m2 divided between the design office and the laboratory. Last year also saw the launch of the new website, a showcase for the company's services and sector-specific applications. Last but not least, Isaline Richard was awarded the Prix du Services aux Entreprises "O" Féminin out of 156 candidates: " It's recognition of a little-known profession, and the difficulty of the path to get there. This trophy is a real incentive to continue and expand our business. "comments the winner.
New ambitions for 2013
The company has set itself the goal of developing both its service and in situ analysis activities. "Our know-how lies in our technology watch, so it seemed natural to us to offer the same on-site services combined with our maintenance services", explains the CEO. Another strategic challenge is to build on its initial successes in the optical and medical markets.
