Tateyama Kagaku Censor Technology

We have the top share in the Si sensor market thanks to our robust technology and reliability.

We develop, manufacture, and sell temperature sensor (thermistor) elements and sensors. We focus on custom temperature sensors for residential utility equipment, and particularly gas equipment. We also offer special-purpose products such as sensors for high-temperature environments, vibration-resistant sensors, and high-precision miniature sensors. We acquired a sensor business from a competitor in 2000 and broadened our scope to sensors for medical and measurement instruments as well as for construction machinery. We have reinforced our overseas production and sales bases and launched activities to address the global market.

[Company strength]
Our group started out as an electronic component (resistor) manufacturer. We gradually expanded our business into factory automation equipment and part fabrication, electronic and wireless equipment development, software development, and other areas. Our component business moved into developing and manufacturing thermistors and related products. We have developed our own production automation equipment as a group to achieve a level of quality, cost, and delivery support that sets us apart from other firms. We actively make use of our group’s overseas production bases and partner companies and we are moving ahead with support for global customers.
