Description/Job Summary

North Star Imaging (NSI) manufactures, sells and services state-of-the-art X-ray Imaging systems and CT equipment for industrial use. The company also designs and develops the software applications used in its systems. NSI provides system solutions from basic low production for R&D, to high resolution/high production/high energy. NSI’s standard range of products are extremely flexible to meet varied customer requirements.

NSI began in the field of industrial X-ray Testing in 1986 in Minnesota. The Company built its first Digital Radiography equipment in 1991 and first Computed Tomography system in 2002.  From 2006, NSI widened its services and added an Inspection Services Group (ISG) offering need based consulting for anyone needing X-ray and/or computed tomography scanning.  Aside from the ISG services, the company also has a Technical Service & Support team that is on call 24/7 to address immediate global customer service needs.

In 2010, the company was acquired by ITW, a global multi-billion dollar company with 51,000 employees across 56 countries. With ITW’s backing NSI gained even more strength and doubled the size of its facility in Minnesota and later added other sites -- Paris (France) in 2012, UK and Irvine (CA) in 2015, Suzhou (China) in 2016 and Marlborough, MA in 2017.

The global demand for powerful X-ray and CT equipment that provide precise and automatic material analysis with a non-destructive view of composite structures is what pushes NSI to constantly raise its bar of excellence in product innovation.  The company has the widest product portfolio range in the industry today which keeps the company way ahead of its competition.
