GVZ Components will also exhibit at EVTech EUROPE / E-TECH EUROPE 2022.
GVZ Components is a leading European distributor for Sensata Technologies, the US based company which includes brands such as Klixon, Airpax, Kavlico, Gigavac, Schrader, Sensor Nite, Bei Sensor, Deltatech, Cynergy3, Preco, Xirgo, Lithium Balance e Crydom.
Founded in 1978, GVZ was initially engaged in the distribution of GTE Sylvania’s glass bottle motor protectors in Italy, Switzerland and Eastern Europe. In 1988, GVZ opened the Italian market to the Japanese Figaro Engineering, increasing the industrial gas sensor business until 1992, when the company became the exclusive distributor for another Japanese semiconductor gas sensor and module manufacturer: FIS Inc.
When in 2006 the company “Sensata Technologies” was created – with the merge of First Technologies (former GTE) and a part of Texas Instruments – GVZ was recognized as the main distributor and increased its product portfolio and position as a supplier for the industrial, automotive, HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning) and HVOR (Heavy Vehicles Off Road) markets.
Over the years GVZ increased its role within the Sensata group becoming the Global distributor for the Alternative Fuel Market portfolio and focusing on the national distribution of contactors, fuses and high voltage relay for the fast growing electric vehicle industry, through the partnership between Sensata and GIGAVAC.
GVZ‘s business is not just the sale of components. The team collaborates with the customer’s technical department in order to support product development. The close contact with the OEM design centres leads to the creation of custom products, reaching the targets in terms of performance, image/branding and uniqueness.
