Rathbun Associates was formed in 1967 by Gail B Rathbun, a mechanical engineer with an extensive background. The original company name was the Gail B Rathbun Company, and began as a distribution and sales representative company specializing in mechanical and motion engineered solutions. Rathbun’s customer list was small, and made up of fledgling companies like IBM, Varian, Hewlett-Packard, Kaiser Electronics and Fairchild Semi-Conductor.
Rathbun Associates has changed and grown with its Silicon Valley neighbors. However, it remains true to its roots still today, more than 40 years later.
