Company Summary:

Thomas & Betts designs and manufactures connectors and components that are required by electrical and communication markets.  Thomas & Betts started their organization in 1898 by Robert M. Thomas and Hobart D. Betts, who are two young engineers from Princeton University.  The young engineers created an agency that sold conduit to electrical distributors at a time when incandescent electric lighting started in New York city.  

Thomas & Betts may be noted most for inventing cable ties in 1958.  The cable ties were used to assemble wire harnesses in airplanes.  Thomas & Betts added more product offerings via an acquisition of brand leaders in the power protection industry, particularly those that are focused on critical infrastructure.  

It was in 2012 when ABB took over Thomas & Betts for $3.9 billion, or worth $72 per share.  This assisted them in becoming a major player in the North American low-voltage products market. In October 2018, Thomas & Betts Corp. changed their name to ABB Installation Products Ltd that is focused on customer driven and innovative installation technology.
