We are Global

Our manufacturing, sales, and service offices are located around the world. That means the excellent service we provide in England, Germany, or Brazil is the same as we offer in the United States, Japan, or India.

We are Local

We are internationally known for the latest sensor technology, but we are just as known for fast delivery, global pricing, attention to detail, and the ability to lower our customers’ costs, no matter where our customers are located. That’s because, although our programs are global, our customer relationships are local.
