Celebrating 20 years of Sensofar spirit

Group, News

There was no going back once a young university research team identified unmet needs in the field of optical metrology and decided to address them. Something great was about to be born. The passionate and entrepreneurial spirit of our founders was enhanced and Sensofar was created.

Under the premises of teamwork, fair play, trust, partnership, and a strong commitment to research and innovation, the Sensofar story began.

The beginning of Sensofar was motivated by the founders, when they wanted to leverage their knowledge about the science of light, to create disruptive technologies that would demonstrate to the market the need for and benefits of optical metrology. Their passion for science became the core of the business.

During the last 20 years, Sensofar built a tradition of excellence by providing solutions across a variety of industries and scientific fields. We continue to work closely with our customers to identify and develop solutions that meet unique and demanding requirements.  The entire team has been making world-class contributions to the development of surface inspection and 3D profilometry techniques and we have also participated in the creation and support of the ISO standardization committees.

“The last 20 years have given us plenty of reasons to celebrate, our industry has progressed over the past 20 years in all areas out of the academy fields. Sensofar has played a large role in the defining key moments of optical metrology, and we are proud of our achievements. Optical metrology has become one of the most important phases in quality processes, and our profilometers are the most versatile equipment to measure and inspect surfaces especially with a growing demand due to the miniaturization of the whole market. There are still many challenges ahead, but our future is bright.”

said Roger Artigas,
President of Sensofar Metrology

Sensofar was conceived as a global company with the aim of becoming an international benchmark in the field of optical metrology. Using the experience and achievements accumulated since our creation, we are still driven to push new boundaries and expand our offering of quality solutions.

“Sensofar today is more diversified and closer than ever with unique product offerings across strategic business operating offices and worldwide distributors.”

said Marc Canales,

Today, Sensofar maintains the same passion from its beginnings with over 80 employees worldwide and celebrated this incredible milestone by hosting an Open House Party for our employees and their families.

“This is an incredible milestone for any company. Sensofar has achieved this success through the hard work, passion, and dedication of our team members; the development, adherence, and continued improvements on our engineering procedures; and our culture of customer service that exists throughout the entire organization. We have dedicated ourselves to 20 years of product innovation, engineering and business process improvements and efficiencies to provide our customers with the highest quality solutions and services.”

said Ferran Laguarta,
President of Sensofar Medical

While the goals of Sensofar include promoting the ever-changing metrology industry and maintaining our position as a technology benchmark, we strive to do this without losing our true essence and the values that differentiate us: closeness to our customers, the enthusiasm of our teams, agility to meet the user’s needs, and a willingness to listen.

This year we celebrate Sensofar’s outstanding and remarkable past, but also look forward to the opportunities the future brings to the company. Our employees face important challenges like the impact of Artificial Intelligence (AI), global environmental and social issues, and the evolution of Industry 4.0.

Celebrating 20 years

This trajectory has led us to consolidate and reinforce our presence and maturity under a new brand image.

Stay tuned for the upcoming presentation of the new Sensofar brand!
