Eddy Current USA
Eddy Current USA, as it is today, was founded in 2002, but the story of how we got there goes back much further. Originally founded in October of 1985, IET (Independent Eddy-Current Testing Service Company) would later go on to full incorporation as IET Inc. in 1987. In 1998, both a change in location and branding would see IET Inc. transform into E-Tech Service Company and move from Chicago, Illinois to the ‘Edge of the Wilderness’ in Marcell, Minnesota. Adapting, once again, this time to a new millennium, Eddy Current USA, Inc. was born in 2002 and has been maintaining the highest standards of eddy current testing in commercial and industrial applications since.
Mike Ferguson, known to friends and professionals alike as “Chopper”, has been a passionate and vocal proponent for maintaining the highest quality of non-destructive eddy current testing for his entire professional career. After studying Basic Electronics & Electricity and Electronic Warfare in the U.S. Navy, he went on to success as the supervisor of two divisions – Eddy Current Testing and Electronic Repair & Calibration – at ConAm Inspection between 1980 and 1985. Achieving his ASNT III certification in 1987, he is a lifetime member of the American Society for Non-Destructive Testing. When not performing services with Eddy Current USA, he likes to spend his time educating the general public about eddy current testing, pretending he’s going to retire, and fishing.
