TE Connectivity is an American Swiss-domiciled technology company that designs and manufactures connectors and sensors for several industries, such as automotive, industrial equipment, data communication systems, aerospace, defense, medical, oil and gas, consumer electronics and energy.
TE Connectivity has a global workforce of 80,000 employees, including more than 7,500 engineers. The company serves customers in approximately 140 countries.
In 1941, Aircraft and Marine Products (AMP) was founded with solderless electrical connections for quick and removable wire connection used for aircraft and ships. After the war time boom the company had to adapt to post war economy and in 1956 the name was changed to AMP Incorporated when it incorporated. In 1999, Tyco International acquired American electronics connector manufacturer AMP Incorporated.
In September 2002 the CEO (L. Dennis Kozlowski) and CFO (Mark H. Swartz) of Tyco International Ltd. were indicted on charges including fraud, racketeering, stock manipulation, and more, amounting to more than $600 million dollars of theft.
In July 2007, Tyco separated into three publicly independent companies, Covidien Ltd (formerly Tyco Healthcare), Tyco Electronics Ltd, and Tyco International Ltd (formerly Tyco Fire & Security and Tyco Engineered Products & Services (TFS/TEPS)).
On March 10, 2011, Tyco Electronics Ltd changed its name to TE Connectivity Ltd, which the company said felt more relevant to its position as a connectivity and sensor component manufacturer.
On August 28, 2015, TE Connectivity announced that it has completed the sale of its broadband-networks business to CommScope Holding Co. for about US$3 billion.
TE Connectivity's product portfolio is focused on connectors and sensors that are made to withstand harsh environments. The company operates three primary segments:
TE Connectivity's Communications Solutions segment supplies electronic components for home appliances, including products for washers, dryers, refrigerators, air conditioners, dishwashers, cooking appliances, water heaters, and microwaves.
The Transportation segment includes four business units: Automotive, Industrial & Commercial Transportation, Application Tooling, and Sensor Solutions.
TE's products are used by the automotive industry for body and chassis systems, convenience applications, driver information, infotainment, miniaturization, motor and powertrain applications, and safety and security systems.
