Sofradir of Palaiseau (near Paris) and its subsidiary ULIS of Veurey-Voroize, near Grenoble, France have announced a structural reorganization over the next few months to improve overall efficiency, quality of service and time-to-market of its infrared (IR) technologies for commercial, aerospace and defense markets, as well as emerging automotive and smart buildings sectors.

Sofradir makes cooled infrared (IR) detectors based on mercury cadmium telluride (MCT/HgCdTe), indium antimonide (InSb), quantum-well infrared photodetector (QWIP) and indium gallium arsenide (InGaAs) technology. ULIS makes uncooled IR sensors based on amorphous silicon.

The new organization is designed around a set of company values with people, innovation and product quality at its center, involving activating operational synergies between Sofradir and ULIS. This includes creating two new departments: one dedicated to innovation and strategic projects and the other to product development and maturity.

“Faced with growing competition, we need to be smarter and more efficient about how we manage our assets going forward; we are setting the stage to continue our long-standing success in infrared imaging,” says Jean-Fran├žois Delepau, chairman of Sofradir, ULIS and US subsidiary Sofradir-EC. “Fundamentally, we are reinvigorating our strengths: extensive scientific knowledge and industrial expertise, technological vision, a strong performance record, team excellence and close relationships with customers and suppliers. These assets will enable us to take product quality beyond current market standards and raise the bar in speeding up innovation to market,” he believes.
