The Merge

History Althen Controls

On October 1st, 2018, Altheris BV Sensors & Controls has changed its name into Althen Sensors & Controls BV. 

Altheris was founded in 1947 and was one of the oldest electronics technology companies in the Netherlands. In 2007 Althen Mess & Sensortechnik was acquired by the group and became part of the Broadporte holding group. Althen was founded in 1978. 

After many years of cooperation, we have continued under the joint name Althen Sensors & Controls.

Both companies operate under the same Dutch holding.
