We opened our doors in 2008. Back then, our founder, Bryce Huett, had experience in the wire and cable industry and had spent time in San Francisco working in technology. He had an idea to combine the two industries and create a different kind of company. This company had to have purpose and give people the opportunity to be a part of something that was meaningful.
With a small business loan, Bryce invested money in software development. This investment allowed us to create our own proprietary ERP. As the company began to grow, we started to build our inventory profile, adding commercial and residential wire & cable product groups. Additional growth helped us open seven different cable distribution centers across the United States with the first in Dallas, TX.
In the last ten years, DWC has grown year over year. If you ask anyone on the leadership team, about the secret to making this happen, they will tell you, “It is the DWC Family.”
Building a company with a purpose and giving the people a meaningful experience was one of Bryce’s best decisions. The company purpose, “Develop our family, advance our industry, improve our world,” is what drives DWC’ers every day.
Our commitment to developing our family starts during a new family members orientation and never ends. There are regular team building events and everyone is encouraged to have candid conversations about goals and development. We work at advancing our industry with technology and are consistently looking for ways to make it better. Our digital and marketing teams created the first customer portal, myDWC, in our space. They also introduced fastQuote to electrical distributors, offering wire and cable quotes in less than six minutes! Improving the world has been a big part of DWC since 2008. That year, we supported Toys for Tots and have been increasing our support ever since. We love to celebrate those who give back in our industry and give all DWC’ers days off during the year to volunteer.
We are so proud to have been in business, supporting electrical distribution, for the last ten years and we look forward to continued growth.
