CarlisleIT started operations in Tarrytown, New York, in 1940, as Tensolite.  The company name stemmed from an inspiration for the finest in miniature insulated wire and cable.  Since 1940, that vision has become a reality and the company has grown a product portfolio to include specialty and filtered connectors, contacts, cable assemblies, complex harnesses, racks, trays, and installation kits. In 1960, CarlisleIT became part of Carlisle Companies Incorporated.  CarlisleIT has continued to enjoy the support of Carlisle, which provides the financial strength and resources to allow CarlisleIT to explore new technologies and opportunities as they come to light. Since the two companies joined together, Carlisle Companies Incorporated has made it possible for CarlisleIT to grow into new markets while unveiling a wide range of dependable products.

Headquartered in St. Augustine, Florida, CarlisleIT has branched out into a global company that employs 6,100 hardworking individuals in over 20 locations across the globe.  CarlisleIT’s products are sold throughout the aerospace, military defense, medical, test and measurement, industrial, and space markets. 

Driven by the entrepreneurial spirit of its founder Henry Dudley Minich, CarlisleIT has expanded into a variety of markets in order to provide its customers with complete interconnect solutions.  CarlisleIT’s goal has long since been to eliminate extra steps while speeding quality products to its customers, and the corporation is firmly committed to staying at the forefront of developing innovative interconnect solutions. 

CarlisleIT continues to pioneer development in the fields of high-performance wire, cable, and interconnect systems.  CarlisleIT can attribute its strong sales in 2014 to a commitment to interconnect technology, aggressive new product development, and superior customer service.  Mr. Minich would be proud to see how CarlisleIT has grown from a small laboratory in Tarrytown, New York to a global leader in high-performance wire and cable over the past 75 years.
