Our team of highly skilled experts is focused on the design, development and distribution of innovative product solutions that touch virtually every walk of life. Our portfolio is among the world's most extensive, with over 100,000 reliable products, including everything from electronic, electrical and fiber optic interconnects to switches and application tooling.

We leverage extensive worldwide resources to meet customer needs on a local, regional and global level. Molex offers well-established sales, product development, manufacturing and logistics resources in Asia, Europe and the Americas. Our engineering, development and manufacturing capabilities are organized into three product divisions, all serviced by the Molex Global Sales and Marketing Division.

Molex Company


Commercial Products Division: Develops and manufactures multi-market products for a diverse range of applications. The division's new product activities are focused into two main areas: high-speed, high-density, high-signal-integrity interconnect applications; and interconnect solutions for advanced engine, cockpit and infotainment functions in automobiles and other transportation equipment.

Micro Products Division: Known for developing the smallest connectors in the world, the Micro Products division is focused on portable digital product applications. This division has a number of business units. Among these is Molex Kiire, the business unit created to accommodate the 2008 acquisition of Fuchigami Micro. Fuchigami Micro was known in advanced technical circles for solving unique problems with custom electromechanical components of the smallest size. The business unit's capabilities including photolithography, micro-etch and small scale thermal dissipation technology.

Integrated Products Division: Produces higher-level assemblies utilizing Molex interconnect technologies, typically in printed circuit board, fiber optic, flex circuit and other applications. Its business units span a wide variety of applications. The Automation and Electronic Products Group specializes in harsh-environment technology for factory automation, power, temporary lighting and ergonomic products in industrial, construction and other applications. The Premise Network Group focuses on structured cabling for office buildings, universities and government campuses.

Global Sales and Marketing Division: A highly collaborative team of regional sales and industry marketing professionals who work to provide a higher level of service to Molex customers. A significant number of customers use products from more than one of our divisions. Many also work on a global scale, designing in one location and manufacturing in another, so customer service requires a high degree of internal coordination. Our sales team is supported by a global IT infrastructure that helps them exchange and track customer information.

Molex Application Tooling

Molex quality crimping tools assure proper termination to Molex products. Molex takes the guesswork out of quality crimping by offering a variety of tools designed specifically for Molex products. This fully integrated approach is crucial, because there is no guarantee that alternative tooling sources are engineered to meet the precise requirements of each Molex connector product.

From hand tools to fully-automatic machines, Molex offers quality tooling to fit your crimping application needs.
