Our history

Seitron’s story is that of the people we have met and interacted with in our company, seeing each person bringing their own experience and point of view. We like to take a chance on enhancing the uniqueness of each collaborator, which is how we have ended up where we are today!

Foundation

It was experimentation and entrepreneurial vision that, in 1981, brought the dream of Engineer Vito Feleppa to life, in “creating a product that offers advantages and is accessible to all”.
Since its inception, Seitron has been active in thermoregulation, with regulators for solar systems and wireless thermostats. Over time, it has extended its scope to the field of gas safety and portable instrumentation, becoming the first Italian manufacturer of combustion analysers.

The first steps

Seitron’s history is comprised of important stages following on from carefully-considered strategic choices that have resulted in sustained success - from the realisation of the first low-cost thermostat without any transformer, the radio programmable thermostat, to the combustion analyser with self-calibrating sensors.

The company has followed a marked pathway of evolution requiring substantial changes over the years, yet the goal has always remained the same: to interpret and satisfy the needs of our customers, supporting them with care and attention, thanks to a team that is highly cohesive and through the continuous improvement in the quality of our products and services that are qualifiable and on point.

A consolidated establishment

The secret behind Seitron’s expansion and its affirmation is encapsulated in the constant investment into research and development, in the desire to propose continuously-innovative products that are high-performance but also environmentally compatible and energetically competitive, flanked by the ability to oversee the entire production process, whilst directly handling the design, production and sales phases. Finally, studies in design also play an increasingly important role in ensuring a perfect pairing of functionality and aesthetics.

To date

Seitron in numbers:

  • 14 million euro in turnover
  • 85 employees

We have always paid particular attention to quality, as is confirmed by the June 1999 achievement of the Quality Management System certification under the UNI EN ISO 9001 standard, being a stimulus for continuous improvement in the corporate system. In 2007, we received Production Quality Assurance Notification for the gas detection system under ATEX Zone 1.

In line with our commitment to greater environmental sustainability, we also meet the obligations pursuant to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) directive.

Seitron around the world

Strongly rooted in Italy, Seitron is also present throughout Europe, Asia, America and Oceania. Around 50% of the company’s turnover is achieved through exports to more than 60 countries around the world, thanks to its extensive network of agents and distributors. 

Where does the name Seitron come from?

We left one tidbit for last - the meaning of our name! Seitron is actually an acronym, formed by S.E.I. + tron.  The latter part is no real mystery - it is a classic suffix amongst those working in electronics. S.E.I. rather - even if seemingly obscure - stands for Sistemi Elettronici Italiani (being, Italian Electronic Systems). Hence, the name includes the Made In Italy component, being a point of pride for our company and to which we have always been faithful.
