AB Connectors Overview

The Connectors Division of TT electronics plc is known as AB Connectors. Its vision is to provide interconnect solutions for every plane and train; to be connected on the battlefield, in vehicle, on soldier, in communication and in power for our defence forces. Today, AB Connectors – which was acquired as part of AB Electronics Group PLC by TT electronics in 1993 - operates from its design and manufacturing facility in Abercynon, Wales, UK.

Through a commitment to a structured new product introduction process, AB Connectors is continuing to invest in the R&D of new materials and processes, surface treatments and the very latest manufacturing technology and techniques to ensure the products meet the most exacting standards encountered in harsh environments.

Astute Electronics has a franchise distribution deal with AB Connectors in the USA and North America covering the company’s full product portfolio.
