Key manufacturing processes of the company include thin-film sputtering, laser ablation, and precision laser micromachining.

Chris Koch, president and chief executive officer said, “The acquisition of MicroConnex fits our well-established Medical strategy and adds key sensor and miniaturization technology to our Medical Technologies platform. MicroConnex is additive to our 2018 acquisition of redgroup, and positions CIT to participate earlier in design and development activities at major Medical original equipment manufacturers. MicroConnex also brings strong technical resources and capabilities that will support and enhance the growth opportunities for CIT’s Test & Measurement platform. Combined with CIT's commercial organization, opportunities for product integration, and application of the Carlisle Operating System (COS), we will drive growth, innovation, and deliver products and solutions that meet an increasing array of our customers' needs. We are very pleased to welcome the MicroConnex team to Carlisle."
