Who We Serve
Molex manufactures components from simple terminals to opto-electrical transceivers. Besides our extensive standard line, we work as development partners with our customers to design-in Molex innovations as integral features of their systems.

We are at the leading edge of every industry we serve, from pioneering the application of self-aligning and flat flexible circuitry for the automotive industry to designing the world's smallest connectors for more compact and powerful consumer electronics.

Our use of specialized contact geometries has spurred numerous Molex innovations in connector design for high speed applications from active components for the fiber optic market to higher-speed, higher-density backplane connectors and cable assemblies for the telecommunications industry.

New product development drives our business. Every year, we channel 6% or more of net revenue into R&D--among the highest spending in our industry. As a result, new products consistently generate nearly one-third of our annual sales.

In addition, Molex engineers around the world play a commanding role in setting international standards for the interconnection systems of the future.
