First Sensor outsources manufacturing to Eastern Europe
First Sensor AG (Berlin, Germany) has qualified an Eastern European contract manufacturer for its products which will add to the doubling of production capacities for the H series pressure sensors achieved in 2018 compared with 2017.

In addition to outsourcing manufacturing to Eastern Europe First Sensor said it is also assessing expanded collaboration with Asian production partners.

With consistently high demand for sensors for use in industrial, medical and automotive applications, First Sensor has qualified a well-established but unnamed Eastern European electronics manufacturer as a contract manufacturer for the standard H-series pressure sensors.

"This enables us to cover the increasing demand for sensors and make our cost structures even more flexible," said Dirk Rothweiler, CEO of First Sensor AG, in a statement. "This is why we are also currently assessing the expanded integration of Asian contract manufacturers in our production strategy."

Rothweiler said First Sensor would continue to invest in its own manufacturing with expansion of its Berlin-Weissensee site as well qualification of additional product lines at the ISO 13485 certified production partner in Eastern Europe.

The H series pressure sensors measure ultra-low pressures of dry, non-corrosive gases in various applications. They are deployed in a range of applications such as respiration and industrial process controls.
