OUR
STORY

Sensor Technology come from humble beginnings.

When Blue Mountain Pottery (a commercial pottery company employing 500+ people) wanted to diversify its offerings, BM HiTech was born in 1983. Founders Eswar & Shashi Prasad immigrated from India in the late 1970’s with degrees in Physics (Piezoelectric Ceramics) and Economics, and they came to Collingwood as part of Blue Mountain Pottery’s diversification of piezoelectric high tech ceramic materials (piezoelectricity).

Subsequently, they incorporated  Sensor Technology and BM HiTech as a wholly owned subsidiary in 1983 and have become a global leader in piezo based acoustic tools and systems. Sensor Technology has been committed to designing and manufacturing the highest quality acoustic products since the very beginning and that ethos has not changed.

When Eswar and Shashi started to consider retirement, they looked within the organization for their succession plan. In 2007 they began a formal transition plan to new management resulting in a buy-out by new management in 2011. In the last decade, Sensor Technology has seen extensive growth and expansion with no signs of slowing down.

Sensor Technology remains a proudly family run Canadian Company which keeps the organization nimble and adaptable allowing us to lead advancements in acoustic technology.

Since the beginning, Sensor Technology has been committed to designing and manufacturing the highest quality acoustic products and remains a proudly run Canadian company. Sensor Technology’s diverse and customizable products allow the company to be involved in multiple markets, including defence, oceanology, hydrography, energy, and aquaculture.

Sensor Technology’s growing success is the company’s ability to control the manufacturing process at all parts of the value chain, allowing Sensor Technology to offer leading-edge customizable products. Starting from the raw materials (which four years’ worth is kept in house), PZT powder is mixed and formed into piezoelectric ceramics. These ceramics can then be assembled in hydrophones, transducers, and acoustic systems.
