Our History

In the 1960s a man called Henry Schuster had a vision to build a company with the world’s best industrial sensor available to designers and engineers across Europe - that company was called Eurosensor. Over the succeeding years, Henry used his skill to put together a portfolio of some of the world's best position, pressure and temperature sensors and to sell them throughout Europe via a network of distributors.

In 1974 Roy and Joan Moffatt also started a company equally dedicated to the sales of sensors within the UK and Ireland. The company was called Variohm Components and as time passed the company grew, to the point where it had an outside sales staff of six sales engineers covering the territory.

Although they were founded and managed by different people, the similarities between the two companies were striking. Both companies promoted the products they sold by means of exhibitions, advertising, and extensive press coverage. Both companies had a philosophy of offering the highest quality products backed up by the best possible customer care.

The differences between the two organisations were just as striking; one found its markets in Europe and Asia whilst the other was building a solid base at home in the UK. Even the sensors which they sold were complementary rather than competitive.

On the 1st of May 2002 Eurosensor was purchased by Variohm Components and a new entity Variohm Eurosensor came into being. This new grouping brought together the strengths and characteristics of the two previous companies in order to offer a truly unrivalled range of products. Indeed, our range is so wide that you never have to compromise on your requirements - our achieved aim is to offer you an efficient, cost effective and totally flexible service, irrespective of your size, business and geographical locations.

This has allowed the business to prosper further and continue to invest in its staff and new technology, enabling Variohm to expand its product offering, helping to secure new business.
