Sensata Acquires Gigavac

As demand for electrification grows, Sensata’s solutions are helping customers improve the efficiency, performance, and safety of electrified vehicles and equipment. Today, Sensata has expanding positions in high-growth applications such as electrical protection, thermal management, and regenerative braking. The addition of GIGAVAC’s portfolio will enable Sensata to tap into a broad $1 billion market opportunity for high-voltage contactors required in electrified products such as cars, delivery trucks, buses, material handling equipment, and charging stations. GIGAVAC will immediately augment Sensata’s ongoing investments in mission-critical sensing and electrical protection across electrified vehicles and industrial equipment.

SACS is proud to continue to represent GIGAVAC in this acquisition.
