About DEUTSCH Industrial Connectors
TE Connectivity's DEUTSCH industrial electrical connectors are specifically designed for critical applications where dust, dirt, moisture, salt spray, and rough terrain can contaminate or damage electrical connections and systems. DEUTSCH industrial electrical connectors have been performing with unsurpassed reliability in the off-highway, trucking, construction, agricultural, marine, and engine industries for over 40 years.
DEUTSCH traces its roots back to 1938, when Alex Deutsch founded the company in California. DEUTSCH first entered the connector industry by creating innovative electrical connectors for aerospace applications. Commercial jet manufacturers, the US military, and NASA have depended on DEUTSCH connectors for several cutting-edge aircraft projects.
Over the years, the DEUTSCH name became synonymous with technology leadership and quality. In 1976, the DEUTSCH Industrial Products Division was formed to provide the industrial and heavy-duty markets with environmentally sealed electrical connectors. Industry leading manufacturers have counted on DEUTSCH to maintain electrical connections and to keep equipment running.
DEUTSCH served customers around the world as a privately owned company for over 70 years. In 2012, DEUTSCH was acquired by TE Connectivity, creating an unparalleled range of connector products and solutions for harsh environment applications. Today, as part of TE Connectivity's Industrial and Commercial Transportation business unit, DEUTSCH industrial connectors are an important piece of one of the world's most comprehensive connector product portfolios.
