LIM SAS was established in September 1985 in the Lyon region of France by a Geologist, Mr Frédéric Malinet, geologist by training.
On 1st January 2005, the LIM Group acquired the company EGS SA (European Geophysical Services), based in Luxembourg and specialized in geophysical borehole logging. All new logging business and prospects are managed under the banner of LIM, with two poles of activities, LIM Instrumentation and LIM Logging.
The business object of LIM lies in the development, fabrication and commercialization of electronic geological measuring instrumentation and associated software, as well as services, training and equipment sales in geophysical borehole logging.
The main business areas of LIM SAS are Foundations, Geotechnics, Hydro-geology, Mines & Quarries and Underground workings such as Tunnels.
In the words of the President
« Since its creation in 1985, LIM SAS has always put the emphasis on technical innovation driven by the professional and personal qualities of its staff.
The respect of our development and delivery commitments is another fundamental cornerstone of our business method, as is being responsive to our client and markets.
During the early days, our efforts were mainly orientated towards the foundation and special structures sectors. Thereafter, between 1995 and 2000, we diversified into the European geotechnical and quarrying sectors.
From the year 2000 onwards, our technical and commercial emphasis was turned towards the surface and underground mining sectors.
At this point in time, LIM SAS is embarked on a phase of rapid expansion into multiple major international markets (Western Europe, Russia, South Africa, Canada, USA, Chile, Peru, Australia...), with the year 2006 being a turning point in the sense that more than 50% of annual turnover was generated from the export of high value-added products and services.
Many prestigious international companies in these different domains have been able to count on our technology for 30 years.
Our ambition is to be able to propose to our clients a complete measurement solution for boreholes, comprising of both Instrumentation for acquisition during drilling and Logging in the resulting borehole, as well as for foundations and special structures, incorporating innovative technology that begins at the sensor, continues through the various application-specific acquisition systems, and expresses itself in powerful yet user-friendly software for data processing, interpretation and presentation »
