Our history

Creation of I-care™ & Condition Based Monitoring

After 2 years working for Emerson, Fabrice Brion, decided to start his own activity and created I-care™, a company based in Mons, Belgium and specialized in condition based monitoring. During the 2 first years of operations, I-care™ developed its competencies in vibration, lubrication, infrared thermography and ultrasound.

Start of Reliability Engineering

Knowing when a machine will fail is not enough for the modern industry. In addition to the Condition Based Monitoring, I-care™ started to deliver Reliability Engineering service and then answer to the request of a major player in Pharmaceutics to support them for their Maintenance Plans. At this moment, the company counted less than 10 employees.

Start of Research & Development

Convinced that the Industrial Revolution 4.0 was in its infancy, I-care™ decided in 2007 to set up its Research & Development Department and develop its own solution of Industrial Internet of Thing (IIoT) and Cloud-based analytical tool.

First European Subsidiary

With the development of its activities, I-care™ decides to open its first subsidiary in Italy.

Birth of I-see: Start of Remote Condition Monitoring (RCM)

The first realisation of the R&D Department is operational and will be named I-see. It allows the company to start RCM - remote condition monitoring - and better answer the needs of its corporate customers by providing them the same diagnostic quality worldwide without supporting experts travel costs.

European Expansion

In 2010, I-care™ opens offices in France. One year later (2011), it will be in Poland, followed by Germany in 2012. The I-care™ Group has now more than 60 collaborators.

Birth of Wi-care

After 7 years of R&D, I-care™ patented and launched on the market its first Wi-care product : a wireless spectral vibration sensor. Wi-care technology solves the cost issue of continuous condition monitoring systems and make a perfect fit with the new version of I-see, the cloud-based RCM solution. The success is immediately there : a first contract is signed with a key Moroccan industry for 150 Wi-care™ sensors with daily remote monitoring. The demand for this new technology is important and I-care™ decides to expand its services by opening a subsidiary in Switzerland the same year.

First Branches Outside Europe

I-care™ decides to take a turning point and expand to Australia and South-Korea. Two years later, the North-America office opens in Houston, USA.

Start of Be Engineer

Voice of Customers is essential and I-care™ decides to start a complementary activity to meet its customers needs: find specialised resources for specific on-site missions or projects. Be Engineer is born.

The new offices in Mons are inaugurated and a corporate structure is set up to coordinate the operations, subsidiaries and more than 100 employees.

First Global Corporate Contract / Start of North America Operations

I-care™ signs its first Global Corporate Contract with a major player in Food industry. This global service contract includes 15 plants located in several countries in Europe, Asia and Africa.

The same year, I-care™ opens its first US office in Houston, Texas and start its Condition Based Monitorinig Operations.

Acquisition of Allied Reliability Group EMEA

On October 24th 2017, I-care™ shareholders acquire 100% of the shares of its main competitor, ARG EMEA. It will be the base of a strategic merger and integration of both companies into one new structure, positioning I-care™ as the market leader in Predictive Analytics for Maintenance and Reliability Solution with more than 300 employees.

First Corporate Contract signed for North America Operations

In 2018, a key player in US Power Supply signed a 3-year contract with I-care Reliability Inc. to monitor their critical and Balance of Plant (BoP) assets on all its production sites.
