CG Electronics, out of Albuquerque, New Mexico was created by Frank Hoover while he was working for Gulton Industries and named after Franks Son CG. Later the business was renamed F&M Electronics after Frank Left Gulton Industries and went full time into the R/C business (our thanks to Stan & Jean-Marie for this info).
