HOW WE CAME TO BE

Existing technology wasn’t cutting it

It all started out in the early 90s with our CEO Yves Gamache working at an air separation plant. When he saw the limitations of existing gas analyzers, he felt compelled to develop something better, and the first digital trace N2 analyzer was born. He soon formed a company with André Fortier, then later André Lamontagne joined, and as operations went global, so did Frank Zhu and Manfred Mauntz. Through the years, the team has revolutionized the industry, improving on countless technologies as well as inventing and patenting 166 novel ideas… so far.
