SGS is pleased to announce the acquisition of Le Brigand NDT (Le Brigand). Based in Nantes, France, Le Brigand is the country’s leading independent provider of non-destructive testing (NDT) services on composite and metallic structures for the aviation industry.

Founded in 2006 and privately owned, Le Brigand employs 106 highly skilled technicians who operate on production and assembly lines at customers’ sites. It is expected to generate 2015 revenues in excess of EUR 7 million.

“The acquisition of Le Brigand is a significant step for our presence in the aviation industry,” said Frankie Ng, CEO of SGS. “It builds on the recent acquisition of Hart Aviation in Australia, diversifying our portfolio in this strategically important sector.”
