Japanese Asahi Kasei Microdevices aquires Swedish Senseair. Already in 2016, AKM started a collaboration with Senseair, and the fruit of this partnership is a new generation of sensors for measuring CO2 and other gases. The cooperation has also given the engineers at AKM insights about Senseair’s unique know-how and ability.
Senseair and AKM are now focusing on air quality and safety in the automotive environment and a new full sensor generation in carbon dioxide as well as new solutions for “screening” alcohol abuse in vehicles.
AKM’s intention is to invest in the development of products, services and production of sensors in Sweden. The company will be operated under the Senseair brand and with the same management.
