Do you want to have an executive role with the overall responsibility over all purchases for the production in an industry-leading high-tech and global company? Senseair manufactures air and gas sensors and contributes to better air!
Senseair is a global, high technology industry that develops and manufactures air sensor solutions for carbon dioxide (CO 2) and alcohol. The company has operations in Sweden, Germany, USA and China.
Senseair actively works with two of the most challenging problems in society today: reliable alcohol screening and poor air quality.
Every year alcohol is responsible for the death of 2.5 million people around the world. Besides this a great number of injuries and trauma are left out of the statistics. Senseairs alcohol screening device is developed together with a group of leading automobile manufacturers and the US government to develop next generations “invisible” and better accepted technology for the discovery of alcohol in vehicles.
The invisible gas carbon dioxide doesn’t only affect our environment and the Earths’ atmosphere – our modern-day lifestyle entails spending around 92% of our lives indoors which in turn increases the importance of good air quality for our ability to work and act. You can find Senseair’s air measurement solutions in buildings, vehicles, environmental stations, medical applications, life boats, factories, mines etc.
In April 2018, Asahi Kasei Group Company bought the company and has chosen to invest in the Swedish business. Today about 170 employees work nationally within the company distributed over Delsbo, Kista and Västerås. Internationally Senseair can be found in Chengdu, Chicago and Dusseldorf.
