Eddyfi/NDT becomes Previan


Headquartered in Québec City, Canada, and boasting over 1550 employees and 32 offices globally, Eddyfi/NDT has announced that it has changed its name to Previan. Previan, formerly Eddyfi/NDT, is an industrial technology group, currently composed of five autonomous business units: Dynamic Risk, Eddyfi Technologies, NDT Global, Senceive and TSC Subsea. The group focuses on providing organisations with the data and insights needed to uphold the performance, safety, health and sustainability of critical infrastructure, providing the best line of defence against the inevitable decline and degradation of those assets.

“At this stage in the company’s life, we felt it was important to differentiate the group’s branding from that of the business units. Although Eddyfi/NDT clearly captured the roots of the company, we were ready to adopt a name that highlighted our purpose and encompassed all our activities,” said Martin Thériault, CEO and Founder of Previan. “We started as a non-destructive testing company in 2010 and we have kept on growing, expanding outside of the NDT industry over the past few years, making it clear that we are an industrial technology group focused on advanced diagnostic technologies for infrastructure and critical assets; our new name perfectly delivers on our positioning,” added Martin.

“The new name is strong, evocative and distinctive. It gives a nod to our Québec roots, which we felt was important; ‘Previan’ comes from the French word ‘prévient’, which literally translates to ‘prevents’. We believe that this moniker maintains our brand story and equity and that it aptly showcases our active role in defending the world’s critical assets through our technologies,” explained Veronique Chayer, Director of Strategic Communications and External Relations.

To launch the new brand, the company has introduced a new website, at: www.previan.com
