First Sensor AG was founded in Berlin in 1991 as Silicon Sensor. In 1999, it was listed on the Frankfurt stock exchange for the first time with an annual turnover of €3 million. Between 2000 and 2010, the company grew along the value chain by purchasing national and international sensor system companies, some of which were founded back in the 1960s. After a change of name, the merger of these companies under the umbrella of First Sensor AG commenced from 2011 onwards. Today, the company generates sales totaling over €120 million annually.
