Who are we ?
OPTEL-TEXYS, a French artisan of measure
Our company is first and foremost a human-sized enterprise, which gives it an agility and reactivity that our customers appreciate. At the same time, it has been able to surround itself with a solid network of reliable and diversified technical and commercial partners in order to meet the demands of the market.
We offer top-of-the-range optical fibre tachometers for the specific field of measurement that meet the quality, reliability and ease-of-use requirements of engineers and test technicians.
Based in Paris, we have global coverage through our distribution network that extends from the USA to the Asian continent. Our main markets include France, Germany, Austria, China and Japan.
Our applications are widely used in the automotive industry, both by OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers and beyond. As our solutions are designed for the analysis of rotating machines, they are also used in the aeronautical industry, energy (hydraulic, nuclear, renewable), railways, and the development of electric and hydrogen engines.
OPTEL, an evolution of know-how over the decades
While the liner France was inaugurated in Saint Nazaire in January 1962, the Paris region saw the birth of OPTEL SARL in the town of Montreuil. It supports OPTIQUE THEVON, created in 1960 and specialised in the manufacture of optical components. OPTEL SARL is a design office that develops optoelectronic detectors and optical systems.
The company also offers its services in the development of very special products for medical and defence fields.
The activities of each company were then brought together in 1971 to form a single entity, OPTEL THEVON. This was an opportunity for the manager to take a turn to develop industrial control devices with fibre optic technology. These sensors take their place in the world of rotating machines and cyclostationary phenomena. They are used for development, validation and qualification in test benches and embedded on the machines.
The first customers in the automotive industry are German and Japanese manufacturers who quickly put their trust in the products and give a guarantee of quality and reliability. The development of a complete range of sensors and probes enables to respond to the needs of leading-edge industries such as aeronautics and energy. The development of a commercial network of partners allows to deploy a worldwide offer and to achieve 80% of our turnover through exports.
