Sherborne Sensors’ story begins in the 1940’s with the formation of Schaevitz Engineering; a US-based manufacturer of LVDTs and other precision sensors.

In 1974, prompted by sales success overseas, Schaevitz Engineering began manufacturing inertial products in the UK. Following the success of these products, a group of former UK Schaevitz Engineering employees purchased the inertial products business in 2002 and formed Sherborne Sensors Limited

In 2007, Sherborne Sensors extended its product range beyond inertial sensors by obtaining the Maywood Instruments force transducer product lines and intellectual property.

In 2012 Sherborne Sensors joined the Nova Metrix family and through this acquisition has extended its operation further; establishing a strong sales, client support networking and implementation operations in North America.
