As a pioneer in plastics, manufacturing and technology, Siemon's Connecticut Innovates! exhibit includes the company's 1906 superior 3-pole connecting block that was fashioned out of Carl F. Siemon's refined hardened plastic compound and became a staple product for AT&T, as well as variety of plastic innovations that left their mark over the years and developed Siemon's well-earned reputation as a leader for high-quality, dependable products.
Also on display is an array of Siemon's industry leading network infrastructure components, from "66" blocks that became the standard for telephone systems starting in the 1960s to the company's now leading copper and fiber network infrastructure components for data centers, local area networks (LANs) and intelligent buildings.
