The Life and Times of Calman Zucker

Posted By Lauren Loudon / March 06, 2013
Myron Zucker, Inc. has long been in the business of providing educational materials regarding our products. We don’t just want to sell you capacitors; we want you to understand exactly what they do. Over the decades, Calman has been one of the biggest voices for our products. Not all companies are lucky enough to have a mascot, so we count ourselves particularly lucky to have him.
Soon after his arrival at MZI, Calman started invading Capacitalks, giving lectures, answering letters, and basically doing half of our communicating for us. It’s safe to say Power Factor Correction is his life; his name is short for Capacitor-At-Load Man! But lately, he’s been living a quiet, retired life as a picture on a cabinet leaning against the wall of the MZI office, with occasional appearances on the Resources pages.
We want to change that. We have decided to bring Calman out of retirement. He will start appearing more frequently on the website and in these blogs. If you ask any questions on our social sites, he might even be the one to answer.
Click here for a blast from the past if you want to see his introduction, which dates back to 1965. You may notice that the Calman document says “Myron Zucker Engineering Company” and not Myron Zucker, Inc. More on that in the future.
