TE Connectivity

June 4, 2019 – TE Connectivity (TE) completed the previously announced acquisition of the Kissling group of companies on May 24.

Headquartered in Wildberg, Germany, Kissling is a provider of high-power and high-voltage relays and ruggedized switches for the commercial transportation, industrial, military, and aviation industries. They have built a reputation as a trusted source for mission critical applications and demanding environmental operating conditions.

With this acquisition, TE further expands its portfolio of specialty relays and switches to support the needs of industrial and commercial transportation customers – such as truck, bus, construction, and other specialized vehicle manufacturers that are facing evolving high voltage and power management requirements as they design next-generation vehicles.

“Kissling has an established reputation as an innovation leader in building mission-critical hardware with products that have a solid performance track record in the commercial vehicle, transportation, and industrial markets,” said Aaron Stucki, senior vice president and general manager of TE’s industrial and commercial transportation business unit. “Their specialty relays and ruggedized switches and expertise in electronics for smart relays and power distribution, combined with TE’s broad portfolio, global footprint, and close customer partnerships, will allow us to strengthen our support for customers in markets around the world.”

Integrating Kissling’s range of products into TE’s existing hybrid and electric mobility solutions (HEMS) portfolio further strengthens TE’s ability to develop and provide integrated, highly engineered solutions for customers worldwide.

The business will now be reported as part of TE’s industrial and commercial transportation business.
