Meeting needs. Exceeding expectations.
Our vast load cell and strain gage expertise means we deliver the most advanced sensor technology available for measuring weight, torque and pressure. Our comprehensive product portfolio includes bonding strain gages, analogue weigh indicators, load cells, digital weighing solutions and instruments.
Each product is designed to lower cost of ownership, install easily, operate intuitively, and deliver reliable quality and performance even in harsh environments.
In the 1950s, Dr. Felix Zandman discovered and developed the Bulk Metal® Foil resistors concept. In 1962, Dr Zandman set up Vishay Intertechnology, Inc., and saw the first production batch of Bulk Metal® Foil resistors roll out of the production doors. Bulk Metal® Foil’s precise and stable characteristics quickly evolved and resulted in many foil resistor variations. Vishay Intertechnology continued to expand, bringing more success and more development to the company.
Building upon this success and using foresight, Vishay Intertechnology acquired three leading force sensor companies in 2002: Celtron, Sensortronics and Tedea-Huntleigh. In 2005, Revere was acquired. In 2008, these four acquisitions became the foundation for the birth of the force sensor division called VPG Transducers.
The unification of the four brands under VPG Force Sensors immediately created one of the largest load cell and transducer manufacturers in the world. Today, VPG Force Sensors continues to reach out to the world with its innovative and quality products.
VPG: Our solutions make your life better
VPG is an internationally recognized designer, manufacturer and marketer of resistive foil technology, sensors, and sensor-based systems to niche, industrial applications. Our products, systems and solutions are marketed under a variety of brand names that have a very high level of precision and quality.
Our vision is to be the leading provider of foil components, sensors, and sensor-based systems with the highest precision, quality, and service for measuring force (weight, pressure, torque, acceleration) and current. Our strategy is to achieve corporate growth and shareholder value by expanding our existing product portfolio, as well as by acquiring complementary technology products.
The precision sensor market is influenced by the significant increase in intelligent products across many end markets, including medical, agricultural, transportation, industrial, avionics, military, and space applications. As products become “smarter,” we will be there to provide solutions that link the mechanical world with digital control and response.
Performance through precision. It’s in our DNA.
