2021 marks the 70plus years of the founding of Ward’s Marine Electric (WME).

Located in the heart of Fort Lauderdale, WME has been a cornerstone of the South Florida marine industry for generations. Founded in 1950, Ward’s Marine Electric is a family-owned business entering the third generation of its 70+ year history.

In addition to multiple generations of family ownership, there are multiple generations of employees.  Over the past 70 plus years, company capabilities have grown, often out of necessity.  What started as a way to keep the field technicians supplied with the repair parts they needed has now become one of the largest marine electrical parts sales operations in the country. WME has also grown into manufacturing, engineering, engraving, and government contracting.

As one of the founding members of the Marine Industries Association of South Florida in 1961, Ward’s Marine Electric is a pioneer of the local marine industry. On behalf of the MIASF staff and Board of Directors, we are proud to offer sincere congratulations to the entire Ward’s Marine Electric family on its 70 plus years in business!
