TE Connectivity (TE) has announced that it has completed the previously-announced acquisition of the Kissling group of companies. Kissling Group is headquartered in Wildberg, Germany, and is a provider of high-power and high-voltage relays and switches for the commercial transportation, industrial, military, aviation industries, and other applications. The company is said to have built a reputation as a trusted source for mission-critical applications and demanding environmental operating conditions. The business will now be reported as part of TE’s Industrial and Commercial Transportation business.
With this acquisition, TE further expands its portfolio of specialty relays and switches to support the needs of industrial and commercial transportation customers, including truck, bus, construction and other specialised vehicle manufacturers. These customers are facing evolving high voltage and power management requirements as they design next-generation vehicles, the company noted. Integrating Kissling’s range of products into TE’s existing hybrid and electric mobility solutions portfolio further strengthens the latter’s ability to develop and provide integrated, highly-engineered solutions for customers worldwide.
