First Sensor Qualifies Eastern European Contract Manufacturer

- Further increase in production capacities for pressure sensors planned

- Company assesses expanded collaboration with Asian production partners

Against a background of consistently high demand for powerful sensor solutions for industrial, medical and automotive applications, First Sensor AG-a developer and manufacturer of standard products and customer-specific sensor solutions in the growth market of sensor technology-is continuing to expand its production capacities, which is why the sensor specialist has qualified a well-established Eastern European electronics manufacturer as a contract manufacturer for the standard H-series pressure sensors.

"Collaboration with external production partners complements the measures we successfully initiated last year to expand capacities at our production sites. This enables us to cover the increasing demand for sensors and make our cost structures even more flexible," says Dr. Dirk Rothweiler, CEO of First Sensor AG. "This is why we are also currently assessing the expanded integration of Asian contract manufacturers in our production strategy."

As announced in the previous financial year, First Sensor has doubled its production capacities for the H-series compared with 2017. This increase was achieved not only through the qualification of the Eastern European contract manufacturer for initial customers, but also through the measures implemented at its production site in Berlin-Weißensee such as the installation of new equipment and the introduction of a new shift model. "To continue our profitable growth in the field of pressure sensor technology, we will expand our capacities further in this financial year," adds Dr. Rothweiler. The company is looking to drive forward not only the qualification of the ISO 13485 certified production partner for additional product lines, but also expand its site in Berlin-Weißensee. Plans include the expansion of calibration capacities and a range of additional process optimization measures aimed at increasing output and reducing delivery times.

The H series pressure sensors measure ultra-low pressures of dry, non-corrosive gases in various applications. With performance features such as measuring accuracy, offset stability, a wide dynamic range and internal signal processing, they are deployed in a range of demanding applications such as respiration and industrial process controls. In addition to the DACH region, its largest sales market, demand for the H series is growing above all in Asia and North America.
