Our History

TRANECT LTD acquired the G Corner & Co range of cable lugs and crimp tooling for Rail Traction applications in February 2001 and moved production to the Gillmoss Industrial Estate 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 they were asked to design a range of Ultra High Vibration withstand cable terminals for bogie to axle and bogie to carriage applications. In the decades that followed these established a reputation for the ultimate performance in these especially arduous applications.

Since 2001 we have expanded our product range 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.

In 2019 we moved to our own unit in the Liverpool Docklands area at 76 Forth Street, next to the Leeds – Liverpool canal. Owning the unit allowed us to refurbish the unit to suit our specific requirements and we used the additional space to invest in new machinery to improve the range of products we can supply to our customers and reduce our lead times.
