In 1993, Jacques Gouffaux and Alain Paulus, two experts from the X-Ray generation field, spotted a gap in the market. They realized that the X-Ray world was clearly missing quality, light and effective portable X-Ray generators that could benefit a wide variety of users. During the next two long and exhausting years, they tirelessly worked on designing and producing the first ever-portable X-Ray generator – The SITEX C3003.
What was a small company back then which was built from the ground up, ICM (Industrial Control Machine) is now the world leader in terms of portable X-Ray generators for the NDT (Non Destructive Testing) market and a major player in the EOD’s Security niche.
On the back of a portfolio that counts more than 30 different products, including the now well-known SITEX and SITEX CP ranges, as well as the security detectors FLATSCAN, we at ICM continue to grow year upon year. Since inception we have recorded an average annual growth of 20%.
Thanks to this tremendous success, ICM reached new heights in 2015, when we became a proud member of Teledyne Technologies Inc. (NYSE:TDY).
As the concept of being innovators and pioneers represents key values within our organization, our priority each year is to reinvest at least 10% of our turnover in R&D. This ensures that we can bring you even more reliable, light yet robust and highly efficient user-friendly products.
Our team is currently made up of more than 50 passionate and enthusiastic professionals who work on anticipating and meeting all of your needs. One of our main aims at ICM is to always be close to our customers. This explains why our products are sold in 110 countries and there is at least one After Sales service center situated on every continent.
