Internationally-recognized for strain measurement components based on our resistive foil technology, sensors, and sensor-based systems, VPG products deliver extremely high levels of precision and quality.
In order to produce a wide variety of products in strategically effective locations that optimize our resources for specific technologies, sensors, assemblies and systems, we’ve acquired a host of brands spanning the globe. Each VPG brand is characterized by solutions-focused excellence, a characteristic engineers and industry experts have come to expect from VPG.
The VPG Sensors name includes the following brands:
BLH Nobel, KELK, Dynamic Systems, Inc., VPG Onboard Weighing, VPG Transducers (which includes Revere Transducers, Tedea-Huntleigh, Celtron, and Sensortronics), VPG Foil Resistors (which includes Vishay Foil Resistors, Alpha Electronics, and Powertron), MicroMeasurements, and Pacific Instruments.
The VPG vision is to lead the way in innova ve foil technology, providing foil components, sensors, and sensor-based systems with the highest possible precision for measuring force and current.
In October 2009, Vishay Intertechnology announced that it would create a spin-off company to focus on their high precision foil technologies. In July 2010, that spin-off became a reality and Vishay Precision Group (VPG) was born.
In January 2013, we completed our first acquisition as an independent public company. Today, we are a multi-national company pushing the boundaries of resistive foil technology design.
In 2020, VPG opened its first online shop through its Micro-Measurements brand, making a select number of our most popular strain gage products available at the click of a button.
VPG Sensors is proud to con nue its legacy of performance through precision, improving the lives of strain measurement experts and the public through stress analysis solutions. Visit our online shop for innovative foil technology solutions delivered straight to your doorstep.
