Bertin Technologies acquires Saphymo strengthening instrumentation and systems division for nuclear, defense and environment
On January 1, 2015, Bertin Technologies, a subsidiary of the French industrial group CNIM, finalized the takeover of the Saphymo Group, a French leader in systems for detecting and monitoring ionizing radiation.
As a result, it has strengthened its scientific instrumentation and systems division and become the only French industrialist to offer a full range that covers both:

- and ionizing radiation monitoring for the nuclear industry.
With the acquisition of Saphymo, Bertin Technologies has created a new entity called Bertin Systems & Instrumentation aimed at becoming an international leader on the market of instrumentation products with high added value in terms of technology, for the sectors of nuclear energy, environment and life sciences as well as defense and security.
The new offer is dedicated to four major fields:
- Ionizing radiation detection and monitoring,
- CBRN threat detection,
