They didn't build that

New York Times interesting detail on the history of Tyco, which will merge with Wisconsin-based Johnson Controls and use Tyco's Cork headquarters for the combined company in another corporate inversion --

The transaction signals the end of the Tyco name, which started in 1960 when the company was a small research laboratory for the United States government, later growing into an industrial giant through a series of diverse acquisitions. 

A small firm that got its first break from ... the government!
