About Althen Controls

Human machine interface is our craftsmanship. Our philosophy goes further than producing joystick controllers and position feedback sensors, we believe in quality and attention for each individual application over quantity and mass production. Each of our customers is unique, therefore we have developed more than thousand unique joystick controllers and position feedback sensors, each tailored to the application. By co-designing the best possible product for our customer, we believe to offer the ultimate OEM experience modern machine builders are looking for.
