We specialise in Santon rotary switches and switch technology and supply many customer-specific solutions in the field of electro-mechanical switchgear. The solutions often concern situations where standard switches are not satisfactory or where standard switches must be adapted to meet customer requirements. We have our own development department for the development of switches. This department has competence in both electrical and mechanics, as well as a combination of both. The developments are manufactured by us, often by the fitting shop. By manufacturing the products ourselves, we have a unique combination of theory and practice.

Our main markets are the Netherlands, Great Britain, Germany and Spain. We have a branch in each of these countries, namely Santon Holland bv, Santon Switchgear Ltd. and Santon GmbH. All these branches are part of Santon Group bv.
