Tensolite, a division of Carlisle Companies Incorporated, announced that it has changed its name to Carlisle Interconnect Technologies. The name change comes on the heels of Tensolite's recent acquisition of Carlyle Inc., a manufacturer of custom wire and cable harnesses, rack and panels and cable assemblies for in-flight entertainment systems and specialty avionics applications. By combining their talented staffs, cutting-edge technologies and state-of-the-art products, Tensolite and Carlyle Inc. have created Carlisle Interconnect Technologies, a vertically integrated supplier of complete interconnect solutions.

With an exceptional focus on the needs of our customers, CarlisleIT designs, builds, tests, certifies and delivers comprehensive, high-performance interconnect solutions created to elevate the performance of your business.

CarlisleIT started operations in Tarrytown, New York in 1940 as Tensolite. The Tensolite name stands for the finest in miniature insulated wire and cable. A trademark coined from the properties built into all CarlisleIT wire and cable products; high tensile strength and compact lightweight performance. Tensile + Lightweight = "Tensolite". The first insulated wire product produced by the company was used to electrically heat the gloves and flight suits of World War II Air Force pilots. CarlisleIT was an early pioneer in the application of insulation to miniature wire. We were one of the first to apply a unique material called PTFE to produce high-temperature wire and cable.
