In June, Sensor Networks announced that the team will be joining the Previan Group, a private industrial technology company, with all of Sensor Networks’ NDT technology powered through the Eddyfi Technologies business unit.
Sensor Networks was founded in 2014 in Happy Valley as a tech company focused on creating ultrasonic non-destructive (NDT) sensors and systems for remote non-intrusive corrosion monitoring in the energy, aerospace, petrochemical and power generation industries.
Happy Valley was a great place for our Fortune 500 customers to come to and visit us. Easy access, good hotels and restaurants. The Penn State graduate talent pool also helped us onboard qualified and educated engineers, practitioners and more. There are also many great suppliers and contractors in the area.
The Previan Group is based in Quebec, Canada, and focused on advanced diagnostic technology to monitor infrastructure around the world. The company assists engineering companies, service companies and more by providing sensor technology to assess the condition of infrastructure. As Sensor Networks joins Previan, the sensor technology they created in Happy Valley will be implemented and used globally.
To learn more about Previan’s newest acquisition, we sat down with Bruce Pelligrino, the former vice president of marketing at Sensor Networks, to get an insider look at what’s next.

“Being a part of the Previan Group will enable faster and higher growth rates. More business traffic will allow us to expand by hiring more engineers, assemblers and machine shop employees.”
“Our specialty is non-destructive testing (NDT) products and remote monitoring sensors for accurate corrosion trending.”
“Our technology accurately measures, tests and inspects the customer’s components for fitness or suitability for service.”
“Previan has several big product lines that will benefit from the integration of SNI’s ultrasonic transducer offering. Also, Previan has a much bigger global presence than SNI which will allow us to leverage sales, marketing and customer support.”
“Their Eddyfi subsidiary has very deep technical expertise and know-how in the nuclear, military and energy market segments which will also greatly help us network and create new connections.”
