Höhne (Group Sicame Company)

Paul Höhne, a wax merchant from Hamburg, founded the Höhne Company. After completing his training with the Hamburg company C.W. Röper and working for the "Lüneburg Wachsbleiche" he was soon promoted from a company secretary to a director at Carl Cordes AG in Magdeburg. Paul Höhne then took up the challenge of setting up a department for compounds in Coswig-Anhalt. He was so successful that he decided to found his own company producing bitumen-based hot pouring compounds. So in 1932 the company "Paul Höhne" was founded in Coswig-Anhalt in co-operation with Carl Cordes AG. Under Dipl.-Ing. Werner Ditrich as Managing Director the company Köttgen Kabelgarnituren GmbH was founded in Bergisch-Gladbach as a subsidiary of Höhne GmbH in 1995. Köttgen Kabelgarnituren GmbH took over the "energy" part of the business of the former Köttgen GmbH. This enhanced the competence especially in the range of 10-36kV and earth cable connections. In 2002 Höhne was integrated in the Groupe Sicame. Sicame is a group of international companies with excellent connections to electricity suppliers worldwide. By this we found the ideal partner to further extent the international expansion.

SensorLink was founded in 1985 as an Engineering and Consulting firm, with the mission of providing engineering and research assistance to companies needing to improve their competitive edge using technology. In 1988, SensorLink was approached by a power utility with a request to develop a device that would eliminate the mechanical clamp from measurements of current. An inductive sensor was developed that used no magnetic materials and had no moving parts. The opening of the sensor is electronically closed and external currents are also electronically rejected. Accuracy, external current reject, and range of currents measured substantially exceed the best clamp-on sensors. The result is the patented sensor that is used in almost all SensorLink products. Today, thousands of SensorLink meters and recorders are in service worldwide.
