Tensolite Changes Name to Carlisle Interconnect Technologies - May 29, 2008

Tensolite started operations in Tarrytown, New York in 1940. A trademark that stands for the finest in miniature insulated wire and cable, Tensolite was coined from the properties built into all of the company's wire and cable products: high tensile strength and compact lightweight performance.

Tensile + Lightweight = "Tensolite".

In April 2008, Tensolite acquired Carlyle Incorporated. By combining experience, cutting edge technologies and state-of-the-art products, Tensolite and Carlyle Inc. have created Carlisle Interconnect Technologies; a vertically integrated supplier of complete interconnect solutions. What has not changed is our unwavering commitment to our customers. This strategic combination has strengthened commitment to customer service and delivering leading edge interconnect solutions to customers. Carlisle Interconnect Technologies' value proposition to its customers is founded on the proven principles of both Tensolite and Carlyle, Inc.
