Silicon Sensing is set to open its first US office to ensure the company efficiently supports the growing demand for their rugged, high performance inertial products across North and South America. 

Silicon Sensing supplies gyros, accelerometers and inertial measurement units into diverse markets including autonomous vehicles, surveying and mapping, space, defence, aerospace and construction and industrial machinery. 

Some of these markets are expected to experience double-digit compound annual growth rate (CAGR) for inertial sensors through to 2030, alongside fast-evolving inertial requirements for a new generation of applications. 

The new office will be situated in Lake Mary, FL and will support personnel covering all US time zones, with direct access also available for customers in South America and Canada. It will be made up of a dedicated in-country team lead by the new Head of Sales – Americas, Kevin Swain. 

Swain commented; “Our goal is to ensure our existing customer base, in both the commercial and defense markets, is well supported, recognising how critical their projects can be.  And then to provide an accessible response to new customer enquiries in the region. 

“These are exciting times when we are regularly approached to discuss new, innovative – sometimes unexpected – projects that require effective, sustained precise motion sensing. This role and this office will offer a local contact for those discussions.”

David Somerville, General Manager at Silicon Sensing, explained; “This is an exciting development for us and reflects the growing demand for our products in the region, a growth which is forecast to continue over the coming years as the need increases for precision motion sensing for ever-more compact platforms, whether on land, sea, air or in space.

“We expect our next generation of products, currently in development, to take micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) inertial performance to new levels, redefining what this technology is capable of. This vital new presence in North America will ensure we are prepared with effective, responsive in-region support.”
