First Sensor AG, a developer and manufacturer of customer-specific solutions on the growth market of sensor technology, has again been appointed by a German OEM to supply pressure sensors for the control of braking systems. The agreement covers the period up to 2021 and has an anticipated sales volume of around €8 million per year. The sensors will be installed in nearly all gasoline-engined models of the Group brands.
First Sensor has already been supplying the sensors since 2011. The OEM invited tenders for the contract again in 2016, as scheduled. The repeat order thus follows directly on from the pre-existing supply agreement. Pressure sensors in braking systems are important because they recognize when a vacuum in the brake booster is insufficient and the vehicle’s automatic start-stop system must therefore be deactivated.
Wilhelm Prinz von Hessen, Vice President of First Sensor AG’s Mobility business unit, believes the contract was won thanks to the attractive price structure and the high reliability of the sensors delivered previously, and thus the company’s reputation. "We can now look back on lengthy and trusting cooperation with this OEM," says Prinz von Hessen. "The stable, reliable performance of our sensors has made a crucial contribution to this."
