WesBell Electronics was established in 1988 by Kenneth Bell and Dean Westover. They were the perfect pair as Dean enjoyed being on the road visiting current customer and looking for new customers, while Ken enjoyed being inside to conduct phone support and accounting work. WesBell started as a distributor for hook up wire and flexible cables to support Contract Manufacturers, Maintenance and Repair organizations and OEMs. Ken and Dean created great relationships with copper wire manufacturers and customers throughout the New England area as they believed in close relationships in order to create long term vendors and customers.
Expanding Our Services
After about 10 years in business WesBell’s customers began to request services in addition to their products, such as adding spiral stripe to hook up wire and twisting two wires together. A small investment allowed Ken and Dean to start offering those services to all of their customers. A few years later, more services were requested, such as cutting the wire to length, stripping the insulation off both ends and dipping the copper strands into tin (solder). They decided to invest in a machine that cuts numerous sizes of hook up wire very quickly, and soon offered the service to all of their customers.
We don't like to say no to our customers, but we will not take on projects that we can’t handle. Most of the assemblies we make are built to a print but we don't necessarily need a print to build a cable assembly. If you have a sample cable or a description of an assembly send it our way for us to review and provide a quote. WesBell will assemble your cable keeping our tight tolerances and quality in mind. We do our best to get our production orders out within 2-3 weeks of the order being placed. Larger contract manufacturing companies may have longer lead times and hold their customers to minimum orders.
Our primary business is to supply bulk wire, cable and tubing products and we don't want to compete with our Contract manufacturing customers. With that being said, we can save CM houses money by helping with the smaller assemblies and prepping wires to make their assembly process faster. If there is a way to save our customers money we will find it!
Service & Quality
Customer service is mentioned and guaranteed by every company as a standard practice, but it’s not always carried out as stated. We seek to visit our customers to get a clear view of what they do on a daily basis and how we can make their lives easier. We mold ourselves to help our customers. If we visit you and hear you complain about a difficult process, we will help you by doing it for you and making your life easier.
