Teledyne Technologies is an American industrial conglomerate that provides enabling technologies for industrial growth markets. Teledyne evolved from a company that was primarily focused on aerospace and defense to one that serves multiple markets that require advanced technology and high reliability. These markets include deepwater oil & gas exploration and production, oceanographic research, air and water quality environmental monitoring, electronics design and development, factory automation and medical imaging. The company was founded in 1960 as Teledyne, Inc. by Henry Singleton and George Kozmetsky and is primarily based in the USA but has global operations.

Teledyne’s products include monitoring and control instrumentation for marine and environmental applications, harsh environment interconnects, electronic test and measurement equipment, digital imaging sensors and cameras, aircraft information management systems and defense electronics and satellite communication subsystems. Total sales in 2012 were over 2 billion USD. Teledyne’s operations are primarily located in the USA, Canada, the UK and Mexico.

From August 1996 to November 1999, Teledyne existed as part of the conglomerate Allegheny Teledyne Incorporated, a combination of the former Teledyne, Inc. and the former Allegheny Ludlum Corporation.

In November 1999, three separate entities, Teledyne Technologies, specialty metals company Allegheny Technologies (ATI) and personal and oral health care product company Water Pik Technologies, were spun off as freestanding public companies. Allegheny Technologies retained several companies of the former Teledyne, Inc. that fit with Allegheny’s core business of steel and exotic metals production.

At various times, Teledyne, Inc, had more than 150 companies with interests as varied as insurance, dental appliances, specialty metals, and aerospace electronics. Many of these companies had been divested prior to the merger with Allegheny. The new Teledyne Technologies organization was initially composed of 19 companies that were earlier in Teledyne, Inc. By 2011, Teledyne Technologies had grown to include nearly 100 companies.
