TRANECT LTD acquired the G Corner & Co range of cable lugs and crimp tooling in February 2001 and moved production to our current location in Liverpool.
The G Corner products date back to the 1950’s when Metropolitan Vickers asked G Corner & Co to design a range of special ultra heavy duty cable terminals for use with DC motors in traction applications. This range of terminals was formally adopted by British Rail as the recommended terminals for all cables over 0.01 in² (6mm²) in the 1960’s. Then in the 1970’s we were asked to design a range of Ultra High Vibration withstand cable terminals for bogie to axle and bogie to carriage applications. These have established a reputation for the ultimate performance in these especially arduous applications.
Since 2001 our product range has expanded to include cable assemblies, wiring harnesses, copper braid assemblies, aluminium lugs, stainless steel lugs, bimetallic lugs, solid copper busbars, flexible copper busbars and associated tooling for high vibration environments including railway applications, standby power generators, marine and military applications.
