Founded on Innovation, Defined By Service
In a small Chicago machine shop in 1905, two distribution utility engineers moved electrical power systems forward with their invention of the detachable porcelain pothead. From this beginning, Harry Gear and Paul Williams set their company on a course that continues today — providing customers with creative solutions and consistently excellent service. G&W Electric has grown into a global leader in electric power equipment, but we have never wavered in our commitment to giving customers the best service and solutions for their needs.
