Wise Components, Inc. was founded in 1975, and quickly developed a base of OEM manufacturers and electrical contractors in Metro New York and Connecticut. In 1986, the IBM research center requested Wise’s service in specifying the materials needed so that each employee could have a monitor on their desk. At the time the term LAN – Local Area Network – was still just a concept. Wise supplied all the cable, connectors, and deployment components needed for them to achieve their goal.
In the late 1980s, several of Wise’s OEM manufacturers moved their plants overseas. Where other companies may have found it difficult to service customers overseas, Wise rose to the challenge, and to this day, provide over 50 accounts abroad with products “Made in the USA”.
In the late 1990s, Wise launched www.datacomtools.com; a website dedicated to supplying tools, test equipment, and data center components to contractors, end-users throughout the US and abroad.
In 2007, Wise Components merged with Avon Datacom LLC, a distributor based in Hicksville NY. Today we employ over 30 professionals, and sell to over 2500 customers.
