Founded by Jim Wilson, who as a kid loved amateur radio and after receiving his ham radio license at 14 years old started making antennas in his parents' garage. And in 1968 started his first of many successful companies, Wilson Antenna, manufacturing and selling CB antennas and two-way radios.
Eventually, Wilson Antenna became the market leader and its products were seen as a status symbol for truckers.
In 1997, Jim was working away from home and wasn’t able to stay connected with his family due to spotty cell phone coverage. This planted the idea for “cell phone signal amplification systems”.
After three years of intense research and development, Jim invented and patented the first cellular signal amplification solution giving way to who we are now: Wilson Electronics.
Now, several years later we continue to innovate, develop, and pioneer technology as the industry market leader. We hold over 40 cellular signal amplification patents.
