Shimmer's sister company Realtime Technologies, also owned by Shimmer CEO Paddy White, is a Contract Electronic Manufacturing company and thus manufactures all Shimmer sensors and related accessories. Realtime was founded by Paddy in 1996. As a quality manager with Intel's start-up team in Ireland, Paddy noticed a lack of support services for electronics companies that encountered difficulties and required rework and repair of printed circuit boards.
