TE Connectivity Named Massachusetts Manufacturer of the Year

Massachusetts Manufacturing Caucus recognizes global leader in components for minimally invasive medical devices

TE Connectivity (TE), a global leader in connectors and sensors, has been named Manufacturer of the Year by the Massachusetts Legislature’s Manufacturing Caucus.

TE’s plant in Medway, Mass. produces precision engineered parts that are key to the manufacturing of medical devices including endoscopes, vascular access guide wires, venous introducers, catheters and many other minimally invasive devices. Approximately 125 people are employed at the 80,000-square-foot facility.

“TE Connectivity was one of 55 manufacturers and honorees from across the state who are truly ‘making it’ in Massachusetts, exemplifying how government and industry can work together to have a meaningful impact on society,” said State Rep. Jeffrey N. Roy (D-Franklin), who nominated TE Connectivity. “For more than 75 years, TE Connectivity has helped to solve tomorrow’s toughest challenges with advanced connectivity and sensor solutions. Their solutions power electric vehicles, aircraft, digital factories, and smart homes as well as enabling life-saving medical care, sustainable communities, efficient utility networks, and the global communications infrastructure. These represent great contributions to the Massachusetts economy and ecosystem, and I was delighted that we could honor TE Connectivity’s work.”

The Massachusetts Legislature’s Manufacturing Caucus includes a group of more than 60 legislators from around the commonwealth. Lawmakers focus on training for manufacturing employees, encouraging innovation by helping start-ups access resources and expanding apprenticeship in key manufacturing sectors. This is the seventh year for the award, which was presented to TE at the Massachusetts Manufacturing Mash-Up at Polar Park in Worcester.

“We are proud to be part of the Massachusetts MedTech community and look forward to continuing our work here to have a profound impact on the lives of patients and their loved ones globally,” said TE Quality Manager Sid Jayaraman, who accepted the award on behalf of TE.

TE’s roots in Massachusetts go back to the founding of Microgroup, Inc. in 1971 in Holliston. Microgroup moved to Medway in 1983 and was acquired by TE in 2017, making it a vital part of the company’s global medical business.
