Mansfield’s Largest Private Employer and a Leading Advocate for STEM Education
In a giant building off North Main Street across from Legacy High School sits the global headquarters and distribution center of Mouser Electronics, a worldwide leading authorized distributor of semiconductors and electronic components.
The company, which started in California in 1964, opened a distribution center in Mansfield in 1983 and relocated its corporate headquarters to the city in 1986. In 2007, Mouser joined the Berkshire Hathaway family of companies after it and its parent company, TTI Inc., caught Mr. Warren Buffett’s attention. Today, Mouser boasts a workforce of more than 1,700 people, with more than 1,400 working in Mansfield, and 22 locations around the globe.
Besides being the largest private employer in Mansfield, Mouser has been a consistent and longtime supporter of many community events, including Mansfield Reads!
Mouser is an industry leader in supporting educational initiatives that inspire and engage students in STEM-related projects and initiatives (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math). It is through its unwavering support to education that Mouser strives to motivate, inspire and encourage new generations of engineers and scientists to lead us forward.
By investing in the future now, Mouser is planting seeds for the next generations of engineers and scientists. For example, Mouser supports students at Mansfield’s Ben Barber Innovation Academy in building their solar car for the annual Solar Car Challenge. Mouser also funds STEM grants to support high school teachers at Mansfield ISD public schools.
Mouser’s ongoing philanthropy was formally recognized when it was named the Employer of Excellence for Tarrant County. The company also was recognized as an Outstanding Large Business of the Year by the local Mansfield Chamber of Commerce for its economic impact on the community.
