Produced by The Founding Network, ‘Founders Changing the World’ docuseries is a four-part documentary that explores the mindsets, ambitions, and day-to-day realities of the UK’s most innovative founders across four sectors, including healthcare, on-demand, entertainment and transportation.
Dr Dave Hughes, Novosound’s Founder and CEO, shares the inside story of his journey from an academic to CEO and how he successfully navigated Novosound through the extremely challenging Covid-19 pandemic, enabling the company to continue driving innovation and advancing customers’ NDT around the world.
Featured in the Transportation category, the documentary unveils how Novosound’s innovative NDT products are revolutionising safety and efficiency across a range of key industries including aviation, energy and power generation. Novosound’s primary NDT products, underpinned by its patented technology, are the Novosound Kelpie (a shape-shifting ultrasonic inspection tool) and the Novosound Belenus (a high-temperature continuous corrosion monitor).
The documentary brings Novosound’s story to life through facility tours, an in-depth interview with Dr Dave Hughes and industry experts’ opinions and views. We were delighted to have a number of key participants as part of the episode including Heather Trodden (early Novosound employee), Maria Nelson (Strategic partnership director) at Williams Advanced Engineering, Dr Derek Mathieson (Novosound Chairman) and Ivan McKee MSP (Scottish business secretary).
