TE Connectivity, Ltd. designs and manufactures components and products for a variety of industries including automotive, data communication systems, consumer electronics, telecommunications, aerospace, defense and marine, medical, energy and lighting. The company serves customers in more than 150 countries.

History[edit]

On June 29, 2007, Tyco International was split and Tyco Electronics Ltd., along with Covidien, became separate, independently traded public companies. On March 10, 2011, Tyco Electronics Ltd. changed its name to TE Connectivity, which the company says it feels is more relevant to its position as a component and communications manufacturer.[2][3] On February 16, 2006, a group of institutional investors, part of an existing lawsuit against Tyco International, sued the company to stop its proposed breakup plan.[4]
