Molex's 75th anniversary highlights their continuing diversity all over the world as they continue to develop technologies in communications, electronics, automative and aerospace engineering. Courtesy: MolexMolex Incorporated (NASDAQ: MOLX and MOLXA), is celebrating its 75th year in business serving customers in the global electronics industry. The company’s primary markets include data communications, telecommunications, consumer electronics, industrial, automotive, aerospace and defense, medical, and lighting.

Established in 1938, Molex earned an industry reputation for developing unique interconnect solutions for challenging design problems. Examples include: PCB connectors and stamped circuitry and nylon plugs and receptacles for color TVs. Molex also introduced ever-smaller connectors and modular interconnects—the micro products of their day—and continues to be a leader in the miniaturization of electronic components. 

Molex opened its first factory outside the U.S. in Japan in 1970. The company has since opened manufacturing operations in many other overseas locations, including Mexico, Ireland, Hong Kong, Singapore, India and China. In 1972, Molex went public, launching a period of rapid growth as the company expanded into global markets. On its 60th anniversary in 1998, Molex sales had reached over $1.6 billion in annual revenue—a figure that has since more than doubled.
