Molex

Founded in 1938, the company became known as Molex having begun making flowerpots out of an industrial by-product thermoplastic of the same name. By the mid-1940s Molex had added the process of metal stamping and begun making terminal blocks for General Electric and similar appliance manufacturers.

Headquartered in Lisle, Illinois in the United States of America, Molex employs more than 40,000 people across the world. It is run as a subsidiary to Koch Industries following its acquisition in September 2013.

Today, Molex is an industry leader in R&D investment, designing and delivering innovative, high-quality, reliable solutions. Molex manufactures over 100,000 products, primarily electronic connectors but also ranging from electrical and fibre optic solutions, switches and application tooling. Main product areas include:

  • Connectors
  • Sockets/Edge cards
  • Cable Assemblies
  • Antennas/Wireless
  • Optical Fibre Connectors
  • Printed Circuit Solutions

Several significant acquisitions have broadened Molex's capabilities to serve engineers and product designers in a breadth of industries and applications including automotive, commercial vehicle, connected home, commercial aviation, consumer, home appliance, data centres, industrial automation, medical, mobile devices, connected lighting, telecommunications and networking.

The range of Molex products available from RS Components now exceeds 5000 parts and continues to expand to include both new-to-market products and existing ranges, available direct from stock for next day delivery.
