Based on its recent analysis of the market for acceleration and rotation rate sensors in the rail industry, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Advanced Sensors & Calibration (ASC) GmbH with the 2016 European Frost & Sullivan Company of the Year Award.
ASC boasts exceptional customer satisfaction rates in the demanding acceleration and rotation rate sensors market, thanks to its robust solutions and ability to deliver complete process chains. Its advanced technology and strategic focus on markets with sizeable potential has helped it establish a strong brand within the railway and automotive industries.
Over time, ASC’s product line has grown to include sensors for three major infrastructure monitoring systems. These are condition monitoring for the wind energy and industrial markets: structural health monitoring for vibration measurements on bridges and buildings and track monitoring for testing railway tracks and their bed strength.
Furthermore, in 2015, ASC launched three new integrated electronic piezoelectric sensor product groups for a wide range of accelerometers in high-frequency and high-temperature applications. One of ASC’s key moves included commencing operations in lucrative, yet untapped markets.
It launched a number of sales operations in various regions by partnering with major distributors in Europe and China. This strategy helped ASC increase its sales by 27% in 2015. ASC is now looking to replicate this success in the markets of Israel, U.S. and Canada. ASC’s launch of its product line in South Korea and Russia by the end of 2016 will make it a truly global company.
ASC’s quality products and delivery of best-in-class customized solutions with minimal processing times are its biggest growth drivers. It has smartly backed its portfolio of standard sensors with custom-made products that can be produced in the required quantities. The company is also the exclusive sensor distributor of Honeywell International and Systron Donner Inertial in the Germany, Austria and Switzerland region.
Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that has demonstrated excellence in devising a strong growth strategy and implementing it. The recipient has shown strength in terms of innovation in products and technologies, leadership in customer value, as well as speed in response to market needs.
