CW Industries

CW Industries has a long history of uncompromising craftsmanship and dedication to developing and manufacturing the best products -- quickly, reliably, and inexpensively.

CW Industries history dates from the earliest days of electronics. The Wirt Company was founded in 1904 by Charles Wirt, an associate of Thomas Alva Edison. Wirt pioneered the development of wire wound potentiometers, fixed wire wound resistors, automotive spark suppressors and slide switches.

At the same time, engineers at Continental Carbon, Inc., were creating basic processes for manufacturing carbon composition resistors, metal film resistors and carbon film resistors. 

Following their merger, Continental Carbon, Inc. and The Wirt Company became Continental-Wirt Electronics Corporation and more recently, CW Industries.

As CW Industries, they have developed patented products and processes for several segments of the electronics industry. 

These products include slide, rocker and pushbutton switches; insulation displacement connectors; and a variety of custom products.

CW Industries is now part of  Electro Switch Corporation.
