HANAU, Germany, March 18, 2019—Heraeus, the global technology company, announced plans for expanding its sensor business. As part of its commitment- and to reposition itself for tomorrow’s key markets like e-mobility and power electronics, its sensor business will operate under a new name: Heraeus Nexensos.
With its range of temperature sensors, Heraeus has shown strong growth in recent years, thanks to the continually increasing demand for sensor technology.
