Westerville, Ohio [FEBRUARY 6, 2024] – Sensience, a leader in advanced sensing technologies that improve safety and sustainability, announced today it is moving its global headquarters to Westerville, Ohio. The move enables the company, formerly the Therm-O-Disc business of Emerson, to better capitalize on growth opportunities available to it as an independent company.

The company has also recently taken a leadership position in supporting the transition to low-environmental impact refrigerants in commercial and residential air conditioning systems by becoming the first to offer a UL-certified sensing solutions for A2L refrigerants.

“The key markets we serve are advancing and evolving in ways that are increasing demand for reliable and innovative sensing technologies and we are moving aggressively to take advantage of those opportunities,” said Julie Furber, Sensience CEO. “This new location gives us the space to grow, expands the talent pool we can access, and puts us close to both major highways and an international airport.”

Sensience, which had been headquartered in Mansfield, will lease 30,000 square feet at 570 Polaris Parkway in the Westar Development Center. The location will house engineering, product management, sales, and support functions.
