Who We Are
Sensing is what we do.
In fact, our name Sensata comes from the Latin word sensate or ‘those gifted with sense’. Our focus on sensing is also reflected in our logo, which spells Sensata in Braille.
Sensata Technologies is a world leader and early innovator in mission-critical sensors and controls designed to make the world cleaner, safer and more efficient. Mission-critical means products that are essential and difficult to do. You’ll find our 47,000 unique products in many applications – anywhere from automotive braking systems to aircraft flight controls.
Sensata devices are in systems that protect people and the environment, so what we do matters. We take pride in knowing our technologies improve safety, efficiency and comfort for millions of people every day.
We are ready for the next century.
Our vision is to be a world leader in mission-critical sensing and electrical protection while satisfying the world’s growing need for safety, efficiency and a clean environment and being a partner, employer and neighbor of choice.
Our sensors are the fundamental building blocks needed for a smart, connected, electrified and, ultimately, autonomous world.
There are four major trends that will shape our markets over the next decade.
A message from our CEO & President

During Sensata's 100+ year history, we have been involved with outreach programs that support education, civic involvement and diversity. We believe our Company must play a substantial role in bettering the communities where we live and work and supporting the engineers of the future. Our employees have dedicated thousands of hours to local community organizations globally through our volunteer programs. Additionally, through our corporate matching gifts programs, Sensata provides funding to qualifying charitable entities that support our core initiatives.
