As of the 1st of January 2013 Assemtech Europe Ltd will be changing its name to Comus Europe Ltd.
Assemtech Europe has been in existence for 23 years and has always been associated with Comus International, becoming owned by them 7 years ago. With offices throughout the world and our constantly expanding product range which has been created by working closely together, we decided that is was time to officially join the team.
Comus International was founded in June 1978 by our President and CEO, Robert P. Romano.
Comus International started out as a manufacturer of glass mercury tilt-switches for residential and commercial thermostats. Immediate success and rapid growth led to new product development and soon the metal mercury switch and, ultimately, the patented non-mercury switch were designed and offered to the market which led to further success.
Today, Comus International is a leading manufacturer of tilt and tip-over switches, motion/vibration sensors, reed switches, reed relays, solid state relays, proximity sensors, float switches and a wide variety of custom turnkey sensors. Success of our product growth and offering has been built with an excellent reputation for quality and service.
Comus has evolved into a world leader in the design, development and manufacture of a wide variety of sensors and sensor-related products. Applications are found in such diverse market segments as medical, automotive, white goods, alarm and security, and military/aerospace.
Our success through the past several decades is a combination of continual organic and acquisition growth, leading to the formation of the Comus Group of companies. Divisions include the following:
Comus Europe (formerly known as Assemtech Europe) and Active Switch and Sensor in Essex – England.
Comus International BVBA in Belgium.
Comus Technology B.V. (Formerly known as Coto Technology) in The Netherlands.
STG India and Comus India. (STG)
Computer Components Inc. (Relays-Unlimited.com) in the United States.
The Comus Group of Companies is now one of the largest manufacturers in the sensor industry.
