In 1991, Gary Michelson founded Liberty Wire & Cable with a plan, only one employee and a dream. He began by selling bulk cable and within a year was growing his team as well as his reputation for quality products.
Early on in this venture, a home remodeling project presented Gary with his first idea for a revolutionary product innovation. In every room of the home he observed many cables, each with a different purpose but all of them were the same color.
Gary identified a need to differentiate cable function by color and soon an industry standard was born. At the very next CEDIA Expo, Liberty presented colored cable with a durable, flexible and easy-to-pull jacket that became a game-changer for the industry.
By 1998, Liberty began exporting and continued to expand its range of products to include pre-mades, connectors, custom or stock plates and panels, tools, racks and power management solutions.
Liberty then entered the broadcast market and quickly became a trusted cable supplier for World Cup Skiing in 2000 and 2001, and the Olympics in 2002.
In 2006, Liberty Wire & Cable was acquired by Communication Supply Specialties (CSC). Shortly after, both companies were acquired by WESCO International, a Fortune 500 Company. WESCO ranked among the Top 4 companies on Fortune Magazine’s annual list of the World’s Most-Admired Companies in the Wholesalers: Diversified Category.
In 2010, with WESCO’s strong backing and resources, Liberty Wire & Cable became Liberty AV Solutions, coinciding with the expansion into digital solutions and maintaining its reputable Liberty Wire & Cable products. Liberty AV Solutions carries several brands of professional installation products including plates, panels, analog and digital devices, as well as rack and power management solutions.
