Sensata has a long and proud history of accomplishment. We began as General Plate Company in 1916 and operated, for many years as an independent company called Metals & Controls. In 1959, we became part of Texas Instruments and, in 2006, we became a stand-alone company known as Sensata Technologies. In 2010, our destiny shifted again as we became an independent public company.
Sensata is one of the world’s leading suppliers of sensing, electrical protection, control and power management solutions in a host of markets and applications ranging from automotive, appliance, aircraft, industrial, military, heavy vehicle, heating, air conditioning, and data, telecommunications to recreational vehicle and marine applications. We reached this important milestone thanks to the many contributions of Sensata employees around the world who perform their own job with focus, attention and talent every day.
When we became a stand-alone company, we spent some time defining what set us apart from other companies. These traits included impressive collaboration with customers, partners and each other; unwavering integrity; deep understanding of technology, markets and customers; and practical creativity focused on making our solutions more reliable, more efficient, and creating new ways to put our proven technology to work for customers. It described us then and it describes us today and it is what we need to do to deliver on our future potential.
Our employees are the reason we have been successful in the past and the reason we will be successful in the future. Employees’ skills, talents and work ethic have defined the business and will shape our collective future.
Our Vision is to be:
• A world leader and early innovator in mission-critical sensors and electrical protection
• Satisfying the world’s growing need for safety, energy efficiency and a clean environment
• A partner, employer, and neighbor of choice.
We hope this Vision resonates with you, as well. If it does, we invite you to learn more about us and the opportunities we have available.
