September 30, 2019

UTComp has received $100,000 in funding from the Government of Canada’s Women Entrepreneurship Fund, which helps women-owned and women-led businesses scale up and grow.

The funding supports UTComp’s development of the QCAnalytix™ quality control inspection system for composites manufacturing and fabrication.

“QCAnalytix™ is the world’s first fully automated in-line inspection solution for composite fabrication and manufacturing,” said Jo Anne Watton, UTComp’s CEO.  “It enables manufacturers to quickly and accurately inspect composite components from start to finish to verify that each part complies with specifications, is free of manufacturing defects and will perform in the field as expected.”

QCAnalytix™ uses a proprietary algorithm that analyzes ultrasonic data to ensure the strength and reliability of composite industrial materials and products. It replaces subjective visual inspections or destructive testing with live, in-process testing that provides immediate, quantifiable results.

UTComp also provides patented inspection technology for in-service assets for customers around the world in oil and gas, chemical processing, mining, pulp and paper, and many other industries.


UTComp is a global leader in composite asset integrity and performance. We provide a full spectrum of engineering and inspection services for composite fabrication and management excellence in the chemical processing, mining, oil and gas, pulp and paper, food processing, and other industries.
