Further expansion for the Variohm Group through CPI acquisition

Variohm Holdings has further advanced its strategic product offering and manufacturing competency through the acquisition of the USA based precision switching and linear position sensor producer CPI (Control Products, Inc.). CPI’s specialist range of standard and ATEX/IECEX/SIL2 rated draw-wire position sensors and its waterproof switch and thermal switching technologies perfectly suit harsh duty application areas.

The ISO9001 registered manufacturer has over 70 years’ experience in demanding control tasks in aerospace and military, construction, off-highway, agriculture, mining, subsea, oil and gas, and many other challenging fields. CPI develops, designs, and manufactures its comprehensive product range from its purpose-built facility in East Hanover, New Jersey and has the bold company strapline “Is your equipment tough enough for our sensors”.

As Variohm Holdings continues to expand, this latest acquisition brings the Variohm Group to eight engineering companies and a total staff of more than 400, specialising in sensors, switches, motion control and systems – each with a high degree of autonomy but with complete access to the Group’s shared expertise and resources.

CPI joins the German/Hungarian manufacturer Limitor (temperature control components), USA based Phoenix-America – (magnetic encoder and magnetic sensors), and the UK based companies Variohm EuroSensor (sensor and transducer supplier and manufacturer), Herga Technology (switching and sensing solutions), Ixthus Instrumentation (specialist measurement systems), Heason Technology (motion control components and custom engineered systems), and Positek Limited (specialised linear and rotary inductive displacement sensor technologies).

Graham Pattison, Variohm Holdings’ managing director, welcomes the CPI acquisition and the substantial opportunity it delivers for the Variohm Group’s manufacturing capability and potential sales growth. “This latest acquisition perfectly complements our vision. By realising increased synergy between our now eight members, we can deliver an increasingly compelling offer to our valued customers.”
