The Sematec Métrologie story began in 1987 in La Frette (38) with three technicians previously employed by BLACK & DECKER in Brézin, Isère (France).
A provider of CMM metrology solutions, the business has seen strong growth since 2007, the date of its buy-out by its now retired former Managing Director, Jean-Noël BIETRIX.
In 2007, Sematec Métrologie employed a team of 15 people, and generated a turnover of €1 million.
In 2018, the Sematec Métrologie team passed the threshold of 100 people, and the business generated a turnover of €9 million.
To support this growth, the Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence group acquired shares in Sematec Métrologie’s business, and subsequently became the majority shareholder.
The company’s customer-oriented business policy is focused on customer satisfaction.
Thanks to this proactive customer-oriented approach, the Sematec Métrologie group has opened a number of offices in France with an array of valuable inspection (2D, 3D, NDI, X-ray), 3D digitisation, and measurement engineering services.
For our customers, working with Sematec Métrologie provides them with an inspection partner who offers high-quality services in short turnaround times, local offices, and a high output (in terms of human and material resources).
Working at Sematec Métrologiemeans playing a part in the business’s growth:
– through training, to keep up with technological changes,
– by guaranteeing data confidentiality,
– by doing everything to ensure customer satisfaction
