Sensor Technology is located in Diadema, in the metropolitan region of Sao Paulo. Our company was created in 1989, at that time, as a division of Heraeus Electro-Nite Brazil. It became specialized in the research, development, and production of temperature sensors with platinum technology based on a solid experience of more than 100 years. That experience was initially acquired when the company belonged to the German Group Heraeus Holding.
In March 2011, Sensor Technology became an independent company, keeping its excellence in terms of quality and world-class services.
