Variohm Holdings Group acquires Herga

28 March 2013

Variohm Holdings - the sense, measure and motion control group has acquired Herga – a UK manufacturer, designer and exporter of footswitches, hand controls and sensing solutions for industrial control applications and medical equipment.

Herga, based in Bury St. Edmunds, was established over 60 years ago and has developed a comprehensive range of electric and pneumatic actuated foot and hand switching controls that meet a wide range of international approvals including IEC/UL 60601. With extensive manufacturing facilities including plastics moulding and electrical assembly, the Company has also pioneered switching solutions using infra-red and Bluetooth technology.

With some 50% of its range exported and with many OEM partners for custom designed switching solutions, Herga will bring additional product and manufacturing synergy to the Variohm Holdings Group which includes sensor, measurement and motion control divisions though Variohm EuroSensor, Ixthus Instrumentation and Heason Technology. Variohm has represented Herga products over several years and helped to establish a German subsidiary company to handle its large business base in that important market area.

Roy Moffatt, Variohm Holdings’ managing director comments: “Herga joining the Variohm Holdings Group represents a very exciting opportunity for all parties. Herga’s excellent range of switching and sensing solutions and its strong reputation for high quality and value both broadens our portfolio of position, pressure and temperature sensor products, and increases our capacity for manufacture including plastic moulding. The move has further strengthened the group and will increase our capability to attract and win larger projects and customers.”
