Our History

The Carlisle Interconnect Technologies story goes back to 1940, when Henry Dudley Minich organized what was then known as Tensolite. At first Carlisle Interconnect Technologies consisted of a research laboratory employing 6 people in an old converted house at 7 Hudson Street in North Tarrytown, New York. While in the Hudson Street location, investigations into the properties and commercial possibilities of various plastics and synthetic fibers were carried out.

How Aircraft Engines Work: Most commercial jets are powered by turbofan engines, which are made up of 4 main sections.

First is the fan system, which sucks and compresses a high volume of air at the front end of the engine. A large amount of air bypasses the core and exits the cold exhaust nozzle, contributing the largest proportion of the engine’s thrust.
