Miami, FL (PRWEB) April 1, 2011
Array Connector Corporation, a leading producer of high-reliability, environmentally sealed mil-spec connectors for rugged, critical applications, recently appointed Ray Castry as North American Rail and Transportation Sales Manager. In this newly created post, Castry will be devoted exclusively to serving the connector, cable assembly and harness needs of customers in the rail, mass transit, locomotive and freight markets. He will also market Array Connector’s zero halogen rail connector line that was recently approved by the New Jersey Transit Authority.
Prior to joining Array Connector, Castry spent the last several years heading up North American rail business development initiatives for a leading global connector and cable harness solutions manufacturer. He also spent many years in sales roles of increasing responsibility in the rail and transportation electronics field.
“Ray understands firsthand the design and environmental challenges currently facing the rail industry, including the need for smaller, faster connectors with higher bandwidths and the need to shrink connectors to accommodate high-speed electronics for Positive Train Control (PTC) systems,” said Jeff Clarke, Director of Sales and Marketing for Array Connector. “His insight will be invaluable in designing connectors that continue to meet the evolving requirements of this market.”
“I’m excited to join Array Connector because this is one of the most vertically integrated mil-spec connector manufacturers in the market,” said Castry. “This fact translates into a custom-design lead time that’s about half the industry average – a benefit that’s particularly valuable to rail customers.”
