Who We Are?

The cable television industry and CATV Services grew up together. Founded in 1975 by my father Richard C. Richmond as a manufacturers representative organization, it has since evolved alongside the needs of our customers to become a “Master Wholesale Broker.”

Today CATV Services also provides major cable television system owners with excess inventory disposal plans as well as new and reconditioned equipment. After 40 years of working with our customers in the cable television industry, we feel we have a strategic perspective on where the industry is going, and we use it to create asset management strategies that optimize benefits and profits for our customers. Our NTSC Extra Mile Award winning customer service attests to that.
