New Yorker Electronics has announced a franchise distribution agreement with Paktron Capacitors, a U.S. manufacturer of capacitors for over 60 years.



This new pact lets the global distributor incorporate Paktron’s full line of ultra-low ESR Multilayer Polymer Film Capacitors and Leads into its expanding lineup and – through its partnership with Paktron – offer some of the shortest leads times available.

With over 75 patents for film capacitors and machine design, Paktron manufactures multilayer polymer film capacitors.

Its products reach diverse markets including automotive, commercial, Hi-Rel, military, space and telecommunications.

Paktron’s feature products include the Angstor Capacitor (miniature radial leaded capacitor), the Capstick Capacitor (lead-frame capacitor), the Surfilm Capacitor (surface mount chip capacitor) and the oldest, most widely recognized trademark in the industry for RC (resistor-capacitor) snubber networks, Paktron’s Quencharc Capacitor (RC network snubber capacitor).

Paktron is also the developer of the Interleaf Technology method of capacitor manufacturing which improves a device’s electrical properties and stability in actual-use conditions.

By using a high laminating pressure, linear stacking technology, Paktron produces a construction hybrid resembling a multilayer ceramic capacitor in cross section but offers all the fail-safe advantages of a stacked plastic film capacitor.

“We are excited to announce our partnership with New Yorker Electronics, which holds an industry position as a stocking distributor focused on many of the same industries where Paktron’s mission-critical capacitors are utilised. We hope our collaboration will help us to mutually grow our businesses and foster new customer relationships,” said Zach Kilsmith, Director of Sales and Engineering for Paktron.

Barry Slivka, President of New Yorker Electronics, said, “We are eager to work with Paktron because they bring high quality, value-driven components to market and offer fast turnaround times to our customers. We both have experience in very similar markets and our global distribution network is in place to help address the demands of these industries with quality Paktron products.”
