Bulgin

Bulgin is a leading UK manufacturer of environmentally sealed high-performance engineered solutions.

The business designs, develops and manufactures high integrity circular connectors, switches and power-related components, which are environmentally sealed to withstand harsh conditions such as exposure to extreme temperatures, water and humidity.

Connectors and switches are essential components that are used in almost all electronic equipment. Connectors provide a path for voltage, data, current or signals to flow between wires, cables and electronic components, while switches control the transmission.

Founded in 1923, Bulgin has a well-established brand and a strong reputation for product quality and reliability with its global customer base of c. 92,000 end users, who are served primarily via specialist electronic distributors. Currently, the business offers 4,500 products that are used across a wide range of end markets including industrials, electronics, transportation and infrastructure, and medical technologies. Recent new product development has added ruggedised sensors and circular fibre connectors to Bulgin’s offering.

Headquartered in Cambridge, Bulgin employs 682 people across its locations in the UK, North America, Asia-Pacific and North Africa.
