NDT equipment supplier, Eddyfi Technologies has acquired Inuktun, a developer and manufacturer of remotely operated crawlers and camera systems.
Inuktun employs 70 people and has offices in Houston in Texas, Aberdeen in Scotland and Perth in Australia.
This is the sixth acquisition by Eddyfi Technologies in 32 months.
Martin Thériault, Eddyfi Technologies president and CEO said, “We are making a significant bet that the combination of Inuktun robots with our sensors and instruments will meet the increasing needs from asset owners. Customers can now select from a range of standard Inuktun crawlers, cameras and controllers to create their own off-the-shelf, yet customized, solutions.’’
The transaction moves Inuktun to within the Eddyfi Technologies group. Sales and service for Inuktun systems, training, product rentals, equipment calibration and repair, as well as support services will now be provided by the enlarged Eddyfi Technologies team.
All Inuktun staff joins Eddyfi Technologies, with the Inuktun staff in the USA relocating to Eddyfi Technologies’ offices in Houston, Texas.
Colin Dobell, president and chief executive officer at Inuktun Services Ltd said, “Our systems and technology are suitable to many of Eddyfi Technologies’ current customers and the combination of the two companies will strengthen our position as an industry leader and allow us to offer truly unique solutions by combining some of the industry’s best NDT products with our mobile robotic solutions. The future opportunities are seemingly endless. It’s very exciting.’’
