Sensata Technologies, a Dutch company owned by private equity firm Bain Capital, filed for an initial public offering of up to $500 million on Wednesday.
Sensata hopes to list on either the New York Stock Exchange or Nasdaq, according to a regulatory filing.
Sensata, which makes a range of sensors and other industrial technology, was acquired by Bain from Texas Instruments Inc in 2006.
The proceeds from the IPO would be used to pay debt and for general corporate purposes.
The underwriters are Morgan Stanley, Barclays Capital, Goldman Sachs, BoFA Merrill Lynch, JPMorgan, Citi and Credit Suisse.
