Local History

Sensata Technologies is global market leader in the 'Sensor & Controls' industry. Without knowing it, you encounter our products daily in applications such as cars, trucks, washing machines and refrigerators, but also in motor bikes, vacuum cleaners and espresso machines. We supply the leading manufacturers in these segments of the market.

A sales office and a small production company were established at our prior location in Almelo in 1955. Over time, more and more activities were developed from this base. In 1998 Sensata Technologies in Almelo became the business center for all European activities in Sensors & Controls, and production locations were established in Eastern Europe, Mexico and Asia. Beginning of 2017 the business center re-located to Hengelo and is responsible for marketing, sales, design and process engineering activities for all European clients.

The market sector in which Sensata operates is developing rapidly. These developments give us the opportunity to grow and we will invest heavily and look for new markets, products and applications in the future. We will use our strong position in the market and international network of contacts for this.

Sensata connects strong technological know-how to strong brands worldwide. We also want to connect with people who can help us realize our ambitious growth objectives.
