  • 02-Sep-2011 04:49 EDT

Sensata Technologies Holding N.V. has completed the previously announced acquisition of the shares of Sensor-NITE Group Companies from Elex Group. Sensor-NITE is a manufacturer of high-temperature sensors used in the exhaust aftertreatment systems of diesel and advanced gasoline engines. The business is headquartered in Tessenderlo, Belgium, with operations and manufacturing in Sofia and Botevgrad, Bulgaria. Sensata will continue to use the Sensor-NITE brand name but refer to this business as the High Temperature Sensors (HTS) product family. HTS will become part of the company’s global Sensors business. “The acquisition of Sensor-NITE provides Sensata with a new technology platform that will amplify the already-strong growth opportunities we are seeing in engine powertrain systems,” said Sensata Technologies President and Chief Operating Officer Martha Sullivan. “We are looking forward to working with the Sensor-NITE team to bring these solutions to an even broader spectrum of customers as we continue to focus on products related to energy efficiency.”
