Our Story

Forty years ago Harrison “Hoddy” and Diane “Dee” Quirk started a company that would define how quality and customer service in the wire and cable industry should be. Through hard work and perseverance, they grew a small company and extended a product line while holding true to their beliefs of how customers and employees should be treated as the most important assets in a company. In 2008 the company became employee-owned through the establishment of an ESOP. The employees would like to recognize and thank Hoddy and Dee Quirk for their leadership, caring and values that hold true today in the Quirk Business Model.
