History of Wettstein Brothers Electric
After more than 60 years, current is still flowing through the Wettstein family. Howard and Marie Wettstein started Wettstein Electric from their home garage on Denton Street in 1951. One of the services that Howard performed was erecting TV antennas, which then spread into selling televisions and other items.

In 1960 Howard and Marie's eldest son, Ralph, joined the business and assumed leadership of the electrical department. Ralph established a loyal customer base through his commitment to quality, great customer service, and implementation of cost-effective methods. We are proud to continue these traditions today.

The next phase of Wettstein Electric took place in 2005 when it became a separate entity named WETTSTEIN BROTHERS ELECTRIC, INC. and formally moved Ralph and Ruth's two sons into leadership roles. Mike resigned his position as an electrical engineer at Trane Company to put his 11 years of experience to work for the family business. Their youngest son, Andy, had been working under his father since 1990 as an electrician and currently holds a Wisconsin Master Electrician license.
