Invest Barbados



TT Electronics Ltd.


TT Electronics Ltd., based in Newton Industrial Estate, is a manufacturer of electronic components, and though originally set up in 1980, the company has been owned by a UK-based international group, TT Electronics plc since 1991.  Its longevity as a viable international company operating in Barbados can be attributed to the support of its dedicated, quality workforce, and to the infrastructural framework that facilitates the needs of a large, international company.


Over the years the company has been well supported by local infrastructure and government entities such as Invest Barbados (IB) and the Barbados Investment and Development Corporation (BIDC). In particular, the IB personnel maintain close contact with the company and are always prepared to facilitate any relevant issues that arise.


TT Electronics plc employs over 5,000 people worldwide, with the Barbados operation employing 102.  The company here has the full range of skills associated with volume component manufacture and sources its raw materials from all over the world.  A combination of flow and single operation processes enables the production of electrical wire-wound resistors, controlled by well established, ISO and BSI approved quality systems.  This, coupled with a philosophy of continuous improvement, enables it to compete and rise to the challenges of an increasingly demanding marketplace.


TT Electronics is a customer-driven organization, enabling it to support demand from global industrial, medical, automotive and telecoms markets, mainly in the USA, Europe and the Far East.  Its ongoing success is based around providing those customers with a quality product, delivered to them with a very efficient on-time delivery performance. 


The TT Way is our aspired culture: it describes TT’s people at their best. The ‘TT Way of Management’ is a key step in establishing this culture:


  • We do the right thing
  • We bring out the best in each other
  • We achieve more together
  • We champion expertise
  • We get the job done
