On May 28, 1996, Fritz Motzko realized a long-cherished wish and founded his own company in Schrobenhausen, Sensor Line GmbH. The brilliant idea of developing sensors for road and rail traffic from optical fibers was the igniting spark.
At that time, the company started with a small number of employees, customers and a single type of sensor that was sold. Over the years, the company grew steadily and our technology spread worldwide. Not only did the number of employees, customers and different types of sensors grow, but also the experience in the field and the worldwide recognition of our unique quality sensors. Meanwhile, about 70,000 sensors have been produced and installed in 50 countries worldwide.
Where do we go from here? Hopefully another successful 25 years, and even longer. Maintaining our high standard in production and the high quality of our products and even expanding them further are our goals.
After the acquisition by the Canadian company IRD this year, we feel that we are in a position to achieve this and further expand our market share in this area.
We want to deliver future-oriented applications for road and rail transport and contribute to safe roads / railroads and smart cities worldwide!
