Nearly a Century of Value-Creating Transformation 

A HISTORIC CALL

Our story begins with a historic call — for our founders to develop telephones. The original International Telephone & Telegraph was created in 1920 by two brothers named Sosthenes and Hernand Behn who set out with an ambitious goal to build the first worldwide system of interconnected telephone lines. The company had a small beginning as the Puerto Rico Telephone Company but grew quickly through strategic acquisitions and the purchase of telephony patents. The result was the creation of a major international provider of telephone switching equipment and telecommunications services. 

THE CONGLOMERATE

The next chapter for ITT can best be described as the conglomerate years. From 1960 to 1977, ITT acquired more than 350 companies and had a portfolio that included well-known businesses including Sheraton hotels, Avis Rent-a-Car, Hartford Insurance and Continental Baking, the maker of Wonder Bread, and others. During that time, ITT grew from a medium-sized business with $760 million in sales to a global corporation with $17 billion in sales.

One decade later, ITT Corporation had been acquired, ITT Hartford had changed its name, and ITT Industries continued its transformation. ITT Industries, which changed its name back to ITT Corporation in 2006, played an important role in vital markets, including water and fluids management, global defense and security, and motion and flow control. 

THE NEXT CHAPTER

Throughout each chapter in its history, ITT has been known for transformative strategies that create value for shareowners, and in 2011 a new chapter began when ITT Corporation separated into three independent publicly traded companies and spun off its water and defense-related businesses.

ITT Corporation emerged as a global multi-industrial manufacturer of highly engineered critical components and customized technology solutions for the energy, transportation and industrial markets.

In 2016, ITT Corporation implemented a corporate reorganization that created a new holding company, ITT Inc., as its publicly traded parent company. As a result, all outstanding shares of ITT Corporation common stock automatically converted on a share-for-share basis into ITT Inc. common stock. ITT Inc. trades on the New York Stock Exchange with the ticker symbol ITT.

As we look to the future, we aim to continue to convert ideas that no one has thought of into solutions that matter. We are a company of experts, innovators and problem solvers. The essential things we do are matched by the extraordinary ways we do them. We Solve It. That has always been the ITT way and it continues to define what we do.
