History

85 Years of Innovation and Engineering Expertise

Since Edward V. Sundt founded Littelfuse in 1927, we've been driven by innovation. Sundt invented the first small, fast-acting protective fuse to prevent sensitive test meters from burning out. From that pioneering first step, our company has gone on to define the standards of the circuit protection industry.

In the 1960s, we developed sub-miniature fuses for NASA, which were mission-critical components of the American space program. And in 1976, we introduced the groundbreaking Autofuse® Fast-Acting Fuse for General Motors. Within eight years, it was being designed into vehicles all over the world.

We again revolutionized automotive fuse protection in 1986 with the debut of the space-saving MINI®. Its smaller design allowed for the additional protection of on-board electronic accessories. Recently, we introduced the world's smallest high surge current protection thyristor, the Teccor® Q2L series "C-Rated" SIDACtor® device.

And we continue to set new benchmarks. As the world leader in circuit protection, Littelfuse possesses nine core technologies, as well as some of the industry's most respected brands - Teccor®, Wickmann and Pudenz. In addition, we're doing business all over the world.

Every day, we're building on our success by making strategic acquisitions, strengthening our customer relationships, and capitalizing on the explosive growth of the Asian market. In all of these efforts, our new brand will play an essential role.

    I have been working at Littelfuse

    Pros

    There is a large degree of freedom with respect to growing our business. I am able to analyze the market, our products, and potential customers and make decisions on how to proceed. Management is very supportive of this approach. Flexibility is the key to growing the business despite the large size of the company. Ethics is very important to the company and is support from the top down.

    Cons

    The nature of the markets that we serve dictates that we have to be very cost competitive. This can limit the amounts and types of development that we pursue. It also ensures that the organization is tight from a resource standpoint.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue investing in R&D and customer-facing personnel. Littelfuse can only grow if it is driven by her employees. They create great products and drive the sales process.
