About Sector

Our Story
Risk management methodologies strictly founded on rigorous and quantified methods, has its origins in the United States in the 1960s, before spreading to France in the 1970s to take on major projects in the nuclear, aeronautic, civil and military fields. Those approaches later found their way into other industries, such as hydrocarbon exploration and production, chemical industries, rail transportation and automotive. SECTOR (Société d’Etudes et de Conseil en Technologie et Organisation) was established in 1990 with the goal of launching a superior independent firm grounded in technical and organizational experience. Our logo reflects these roots: we don’t just replace the missing piece of the circle. Rather, we address the needs of our clients with added value, aiming high and constantly evolving within the warm and productive environment demanded by the challenges of the field. We have worked on over 2,500 projects to date. For example, in the early 1990s, SECTOR worked for the Office of the Prime Minister of France and the SNCF to address the risks of constructing a segment of its Mediterranean high-speed railway near the Tricastin Nuclear Power Plant. Later, SECTOR helped the SNCF develop methods for transporting hazardous materials. Électricité de France (EDF) entrusted SECTOR with trending most of the reliability data of nuclear power plant components crucial for safety. Alain Villemeur—celebrated author of Reliability, Availability, Maintainability and Safety Assessment and project manager of the EDF’s nuclear site maintenance programs—sought SECTOR to improve his reliability-based maintenance method, Optimisation de la Maintenance par la Fiabilité (RCM), as well as standardizing and implementing its use on nuclear sites.
