As not all part numbers will transfer at the same time customers may still receive product from the Menlo Park location after this transfer date due to inventory we will carry. Where necessary TE will continue with internal qualification and testing of products after they are received at the new locations. TE will also be changing the Unit of measure (UOM) for the STK descriptions. The original UOM was either Feet or Metres for the new parts the UOM is Piece. New part numbers for SCL spooled or STK parts have been issued.Reason for Changes: Dear Customer, we hereby inform you about a transfer of processes.
