About Us

Sapphire was founded in 1967 in Ferndale in the Rhondda Valleys and produced some of the very first digital electronic multimeters.

From this, the company evolved into other forms of industrial control equipment including specialised industrial tachometers and associated sensors.

Since 1982, the company has been a key player in the retail industry, specifically the design and manufacture of controllers for belted checkouts and automatic gates. We also develop bespoke LED signage and call forward systems.
