Tri-Star Electronics International joined the CarlisleIT family in December 2011, and brings more than 40 years of experience providing high-reliability contacts, specialty connectors and low-cost solutions for Mil-Aero.
The acquisition of Tri-Star complemented CarlisleIT’s industry expertise and wide range of capabilities, providing a whole new level of vertical integration for customers. Designing and manufacturing contacts and connectors in-house helps ensure quality and reliability, and provides cost-effective solutions through custom-designed automation.
CarlisleIT supplies over 90% of the world’s leading aerospace, avionics and electronics OEMs, with expanded services including internal design and development, custom manufacturing and automated assembly/plating equipment.
ISO9001/AS9100C third-party qualified and registered, CarlisleIT was the first to be fully compliant with SAE AS39029 (Mil-C-39029) and is the world’s largest independent manufacturer of high-reliability contacts. We have nearly 400 QPL approvals for AS39029 contacts—far more than any other manufacturer.
In addition to Mil-Std contacts, we offer a full line of AECMA, EN (including EN3155 contacts), BACC, ESC, and BAN contacts, as well as a full range of Crimp, Printed Circuit Tail, Thermocouple, Coaxial, Solder Cup and Wire Wrap, Twinax and Quadrax Contacts, and specialized custom designs.
