SCHAFFHAUSEN, Switzerland, May 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- TE Connectivity (TE) (NYSE: TEL), a world leader in connectivity and sensors, has been named to the Forbes 2017 list of America's Best Employers.
TE develops and manufactures highly engineered sensors and connectors that enable the world's most innovative companies to tackle their toughest challenges. TE's diverse range of connectivity solutions are essential elements in cars, planes, power grids, appliances, electronics, factories, medical devices and more.
TE employs approximately 75,000 people in 150 countries, including 7,000 engineers whose innovations help make our world safer, greener, smarter and more connected. The company has 12,000 employees and more than 60 office and manufacturing facilities in the United States.
