Our story begins in 1989 in Luxembourg. We make a breakthrough as a start-up, a small team of 3 people with ideas, knowledge and ambition. Since then, thanks to our talented and dedicated people, we’ve come a long way, expanding globally, making ourselves a solid reputation among world’s best-known customers, leading the way in innovation.
As a world leading supplier of advanced sensing solutions for automotive, smart buildings and smart health, we’re always looking into the future and we are proud of our history.
