Founder, Phil Ramos, Jr., serves as President and CEO of Philatron Wire and Cable, the largest wire and cable manufacturer in Southern California. PHILATRON is the world’s foremost specialist in coiled cords and retractile power cables.
From an early age, Ramos’ allegiance to country was evident, but it heightened during his term in the US Navy. Ramos served in the US Navy, in which, he advanced from an E1 Seaman pay-grade to an E4 pay-grade 3rd Class Petty Officer in less than a year. Even today, his strong American values hold, and are a driving force behind PHILATRON’S image.
Ramos worked his way through college while holding an entry-level position at a local manufacturer, Teledyne Western Wire & Cable. While learning about the manufacturing industry in depth, and developing a strong work ethic Ramos achieved his higher education in business at Cal State Los Angeles. His outstanding efforts promoted him to the position of Plant Manager at Teledyne Western.
Soon after at the age of 28, he accepted the position of Executive Vice-President of a wire and cable start-up manufacturer, Century Wire & Cable. After two years of fulfilling his obligations at Century Wire and Cable, he and his spouse, Eloise Ramos, founded what is known today as PHILATRON Wire and Cable.
Forty years later, Ramos is still an active part of what his company manufactures. He is an engineer and inventor of many of PHILATRON’S products such as Philafin™ , the Coveted, durable non-nylon Stallion® Air lines made with the proprietary compound blend that lives up to extreme cold temperatures and the Stallion® Coiled Electrical Cables with the Indestructible (non-plastic) Xenoy® 7-way plugs, and most recent the Armor coil sleeve design, just to name a few. Additionally, Ramos has established and developed many unique patents over the years.
Ramos also serves in various organizations throughout Southern California. He is on the Board of Directors for Catholic Charities Orange County, Magis Center Reason & Faith, and Loyola Institute of Spirituality. He serves on the Business Advisory Board for Catholics Come Home. Ramos is a Legatus Member in the Orange County Chapter, as well as a member of Knights of Columbus. He serves on the Stewardship Committee at San Antonio Church; and somehow he still finds the time for tennis. He was the 2007 Winner of United States Tennis Association – Southern California 7.0 Division – Men’s Doubles – Super Senior League
