Who are Santon?
Originally formed in 1900, Santon started building electrical water heaters but found themselves without electrical switches. After researching possible solutions, the company found they had to use the concept of a rotary switch and opted for a packet switch which is now known to be a superior concept to switch off DC Current. After various takeovers and changes to the business, the company moved to Holland with a UK subsidiary in Newport.

Santon is the only UK supplier of tinned contacts for Fused Combination Switches.

As a member of the Rail Alliance, Santon collaborates with customers and suppliers to improve and innovate products within the rail supply chain.
