Fujikura is a traditional Japanese company that was founded in 1885. The first products were copper cables - at that time a high-tech product. In its 130-year history Fujikura has developed more and more into a technological conglomerate. Today, with more than 50,000 employees, Fujikura is one of the world's leading manufacturers and drivers of innovation in many areas such as fiber optic transmission, flexible printed circuits (FPC), cable harnesses for the automotive industry and submarine cables.

Angst+Pfister Sensors and Power works primarily with the Sensor Division, which was founded in 1982. The decision to develop its own pressure sensor for monitoring cables (leak testing) has proven to be spot on. The resulting products, with their high accuracy, robustness, stability and quality, are now indispensable in many medical and industrial applications.

The close cooperation and partnership between Fujikura and Angst+Pfister Sensors and Power has now existed for over 30 years. The combination of Angst+Pfister Sensors and Power's engineering and application knowledge and Fujikura's development and manufacturing expertise has resulted in countless successful product innovations over the years. Together with a large medical technology customer, for example, the AG3-/AP3 series has been developed, which is used for high-precision non-invasive blood pressure measurement (NIBP) and is a unique product on the market. Angst+Pfister Sensors and Power and Fujikura have proven over the last decades that cooperation between Japanese and Swiss can work very well and is successful. The great trust, long-term planning and extremely high quality standards are only some of the guarantees of success. Despite the combination of two high-priced countries, the products are extremely competitive and have an extremely good price-performance ratio - this can be explained mainly by the optimized processes, highly automated production and the outstanding quality (almost 100% yield in production and no major quality cases in the last 30 years).
