We are part of the Variohm Group

We at Ixthus Instrumentation are part of the Variohm Group. It includes several companies specialising in positioning, sensor and measurement solutions, designing and manufacturing customised solutions. Together with our sister companies we offer several thousand products and thus always provide you with the best possible solution for your application. And if it has to be even more individual, we have the capacity to develop a bespoke product together with you. In this way, we are always developing new solutions that make your work easier.

True to the motto "together we are strong", we in the Variohm Group all benefit from a huge advantage: Together we have an incredible amount of bundled expertise and extensive resources at our disposal - and can still act autonomously at the same time. Our specialists are thus constantly trained and can provide you with the best possible advice for your needs.

The Variohm Group is represented in Germany, England, Hungary and also the USA, which makes worldwide delivery possible without any problems. As a strong and committed team, about 500 people are working to provide you with high-quality products and innovative ideas, with the result that our solutions are widely represented in a variety of sectors - for example, industry, medical technology, vehicle construction, renewable energies, aviation and motor sports.
