Wireworks is celebrating 35 years of business this year. According to a company press release, founders Gerald Krulewicz and Larry Williams saw the need for professional multi-channel audio products while working on Broadway in the early 1970s. After its founding in 1974, the company began manufacturing large-scale multi-pin disconnects and a full line of audio and video cable assemblies. In the 1980s, Wireworks expanded to include a combined audio/video multi-cable for broadcast use. The company’s most recent products include the AV2000 multi-pin connector system, and Wirelux and Musilux audio cables. Within the U.S., the average American either hears or sees media content transmitted by Wireworks-manufactured cable every day.
