Pasternack Celebrates Its 50th Anniversary

From the Garage to the Globe – Pasternack’s Legacy in the RF/Microwave Industry

Pasternack, an Infinite Electronics brand and a leading provider of RF, microwave and millimeter-wave products, is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year.


The company was established on January 9, 1972, by its founder Murray Pasternack, who ran the business out of his home in southern California. His sole purpose was to address the unique product needs of RF and microwave engineers.

From its humble beginnings in Murray’s garage, the company has since grown to become a global leader in the RF and microwave industry, providing its customers with an extensive range of actives, passives and cable assemblies.

Many things have changed since the company’s inception in 1972. However, one thing that has not is its customers’ demand for a reliable source of high-quality RF and microwave products backed by superior technical and customer service.

The company continues to thrive by aligning its products and services with the needs of its customers. Its inventory of more than 40,000 products is always available, granting customer access to the broadest array of industry standards as well as rare and hard-to-find specialty items. In addition to thousands of off-the-shelf products, It is an expert at building custom cable assemblies with same-day shipping.

We are so proud to be celebrating Pasternack’s 50th anniversary. Our success has come from listening to what our customers need and by providing responsive, technical and customer service as well as offering the industry’s broadest selection of in-stock products to address the urgent needs of our customers,” said Penny Cotner, President and CEO of Infinite Electronics. “As the flagship brand of Infinite Electronics, Pasternack has set the standard of service for our company.”
