AVENISENSE is the fluidic properties line of the WIKA GROUP. WIKA-TECH – former company AVENISENSE – passionately creates and produces cutting edge, robust, fluidic properties sensing technologies. These sensors make our customer’s operations more reliable and profitable, while at the same time reducing their environmental impact. WIKA-TECH delivers plug and play sensing modules for the continuous monitoring of liquid and gases. The sensors are designed to be seamlessly embedded in all kinds of higher-level assemblies. The WIKA-TECH growth strategy is to be engaged in long-term, worldwide relationships with key customers, OEM integrators, distributors and research institutes.

Our history

The AVENISENSE story started in 2010 in the heart of the French Alps. Three entrepreneurs François Chaudoreille, Guillaume Granier and Eric Donzier founded a company and named it AVENISENSE. In 2011, while working in conjunction with strategic customers, the concepts of the first commercial products were developed. In 2012, the company received its first commercial success and was issued the first patents for the MESOSCALE micro-sensors. This technology is the backbone of the DEVIL and NORTHDOME fluidic properties sensors. In 2015 with the help of strategic investors such as Total Energy Ventures, Air Liquide (ALIAD) and Demeter Partners, AVENISENSE has continued to further develop by opening sales and services offices in strategic markets, with a primary focus on the US market. 
In 2018, AVENISENSE is purchased by the WIKA Group, a worldwide leader in the pressure, temperature, level and flow measurements employing more than 9,000 employees in 50 countries around the globe and producing over 50 million parts every year. Through the integration of AVENISENSE assets into the newborn WIKA-TECH, WIKA grows into the fluidic properties sensing domain while providing AVENISENSE with the support of a global sales network, production expertise and capabilities, and strategic investment into new product developments.
