If you need it, we can find it. We also offer high-quality repair service on phones, voice mails and system components.

WTI was started by lifelong friends Tom Ortbal and Tim Clancy. Tom and Tim grew up together in West St. Louis County and have known each

othersince they were 12 years old. After 20 combined years working for others in the secondary telecom industry, Tom and Tim decided to branch out on their own.

Within 3 months the operation moved into a 2500 square foot office/warehouse in the West Port area of St. Louis. 2 years later we moved into a new facility doubling our office space. That same year Mike Dickson came on board as the Sales Manager and within 2 years the sales volume of the company doubled.
Today, WTI operates out of a 16,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility. We currently employ a staff of over twenty sales, technical, and office professionals that provide excellent service to over 3000 satisfied customers.
