    A history of bringing innovation to our clients

    Horn switch

    From our origins in 1861 through to today we have recognised how important innovaton is, to us, our clients and their customers. Our past inventions have given us the foothold to build knowledge yet further. So when we developed the airbag hornswitch in the 1990s', this know-how has helped us develop the new integrated electronic surface technology products we see today in many applications.
