United States, Wa... "Wire Ways, Inc. (W2) has a long-range goal of becoming the premier high-end system integrator for the Puget Sound area. We are positioned in one of the most progressive high-tech areas in the world yet we have an underdeveloped supply of companies like ours to provide the amount and quality of services we offer. W2’s focus is set on becoming the marker leader by provided an unmatched set of and quality of services. It is our goal to simply be known as “the best” to our very select market niche. Founded in 1990, W2 has had a fast and furious 10 years. It has had a total of four locations in two states, had a peak employment of 42, became a full residential electrical contractor, changed its focus from production homes to high-end custom residential, all with virtually no equity capital infusions. W2 knows what it takes to survive in an industry that has seen dozens of competitors come and go. W2 has made mistakes with little room for error and has come back to become one of the top 17 companies of its type in the country (CE Pro).

With W2’s continued focus on high-end residential, lighting and how it is designed and the fixtures used has become more and more of an issue. Seeing this need and having worked with David Story an independent lighting designer, lead to the move of bringing him on staff at the beginning of 1999.
