Hundreds of systems made in 30 years.
A reputation for quality that brings us the loyalty of our customers and ensures our sustainability.
That allowed the creation of an international group
After nearly 15 years at Scheider Electric, particularly on test bench themes, Charles takes over the technical direction of SAPHIR to support its transformation.
In preparation for his retirement, which will take place the following year, Jean-Michel CHALONS, founder of SAPHIR, entrusts the reins of the company to Ludovic, who arrived 15 years ago as an engineer.
SAPHIR and Qualimatest, a Geneva-based company specializing in automated optical control systems, decided to get closer under QMT Group, created for the occasion. The group is thus positioned as a leader in test, measurement and control solutions on the French and Swiss markets.
Thanks to this authorization, SAPHIR customers can now use this tax provision for expenses made with SAPHIR in the context of research projects.
To support its development, the company moves a few kilometers, leaving Chapareillan for Barraux (Isère, 38).
The intimacy between the founders gives birth to this very first partnership in the history of National Instruments, which is also the founding brick of the Alliance network. SAPHIR will thus contribute to publicizing the platform tools of National Instruments in France and in Europe, participating in their growth.
Jean-Michel CHALONS, engineer in civil engineering of INSA (77) and specialist in Acoustics and Vibrations creates the company. His idea: to transform the world of Measurement thanks to advances in electronics and computing.
