WISA Welcome’s Capital Electric Wire and Cable Company





More than four decades ago, Capital Electric grew from a concept into a business all within the Harpster family garage. It wasn’t the products or the industry that built the company — it was a dedication to homegrown, traditional values. And 100% personalized service.

A lot has changed since 1978. As the industry has continuously evolved, we’ve been there every step of the way ensuring that you always get what you need.

We proudly remain a family-owned, local wholesale distributor of industrial/electrical and network/datacom products. We currently are applying our certified expertise and innovative solution development to these industries:

  • Data centers
  • Education
  • Electrical and low-voltage contractors
  • Entertainment
  • Finance
  • Health care
  • Insurance
  • Original equipment manufacturers
  • Specialty contractors and integrators

Capital Electric has collaborated with some of the Midwest’s finest organizations, resulting in some impressive results. Let us do the same for you.

WISA Welcome’s Potter



Potter Electric Signal Company has been operating in St. Louis, Missouri for over 120 years. In that time, we’ve gone through many changes and grown as a company by developing high quality products with a global reach. However, one thing that hasn’t changed is our commitment to American manufacturing. Our headquarters and manufacturing facility has remained in St. Louis since 1898, and we are proud to have become a leader in the fire and life safety products industry. We have a vested interest in providing Americans with quality jobs so that they may support their families. At Potter, we understand the importance of family because we are a family.

We take pride in providing quality products that save lives every day. Nothing leaves our facility without going through rigorous testing and quality checks. Assembling and shipping from the same location in St. Louis makes our quality assurance very reliable. Every flowswitch, fire panel, and nitrogen generator that you purchase is not only manufactured to the highest possible standard, but it puts money in the pockets of American employees. Americans who buy local food, support local businesses, and contribute to the U.S. economy in countless ways.

Our desire to stay in the United States has set us apart from our competition. Assembling in the USA provides several distinct advantages to not only us, but you as well. High safety standards for our workers mean that we have a happy and healthy staff eager to create high quality products for you. Quick shipping turnaround allows us to get products to you promptly.
