On February 5, 2020, Eddyfi Technologies Inc. (Eddyfi) announced that it completed the acquisition of Ireland-based NDT Global to form Eddyfi/NDT.

These investments, combined with a round of debt financing provided by a banking syndicate led by National Bank of Canada and additional debt from Investissement Quebec, provided funding for the NDT Global acquisition as well as pursuing other strategic opportunities.
