TE CONNECTIVITY / TYCO
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. On June 29, 2007, Tyco International was split and Tyco Electronics Ltd., along with Covidien, became separate, independently-traded public companies.
