The Caton Connector Corporation was founded in 1973, in Plymouth, Massachusetts by the late Louis G. Galambos, P.E. and Frank Tylinski. Both men were WWII USN veterans and spent the better part of their respective careers in the field of high voltage interconnects. As a Professor of Electrical Engineering, Galambos specialized in high voltage design and manufacturing, while Tylinski’s strengths lay in high voltage sales and marketing.
Today, Caton is a manufacturer of high voltage connectors and cable assemblies for use in the Military, Semiconductor, Utility, Medical and Avionics industries. Caton products operate at voltages up to 100kVdc; altitudes up to 50,000 ft and have partial discharge levels of 5 to 15 picocoulombs at voltages up to 15kV RMS. Caton assembly configurations have up to 13 conductors, multi-shields and use single, double and triple extruded silicone cables built to lengths of up to 300 feet. Additionally, Caton is a preferred distributor of a large variety of wire; including flat wire with both high and low voltage applications.
Since 1996, Daniel Galambos has served as Caton’s President. He has been with Caton since its inception; working his way up through various manufacturing and sales positions and is now Caton’s sole proprietor. Under Galambos’ leadership, Caton has quadrupled its annual sales, become ISO 9001 and AS 9100 registered and is aligned to work with multiple Fortune 500 companies.
Caton’s greatest asset is its staff. With over 30 employees, Caton can leverage decades of both high and low voltage design and manufacturing expertise.
