TE Connectivity has entered into exclusive negotiations with ABB to acquire ABB’s entrelec® terminal block business. The transaction is subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions including receipt of customary regulatory approvals and prior consultation with employee representative bodies.
ABB’s entrelec® terminal block business was founded as entrelec in 1920 and serves customers in more than 70 countries. The business comprises research and development, product development, marketing and sales and management activities in Chassieu, France; and with main manufacturing sites in France and Poland.
By adding the ABB’s entrelec® terminal block offering, under the product brand entrelec, TE would be able to offer a complete system for power, signal and data connectivity with special focus on harsh environments. This system would be a crucial part of TE’s future product portfolio – and would contribute to TE’s ability to offer customers some of the most comprehensive products, technologies and services within the industry.
