Decades of Experience

Ward’s is the industry-leading marine electrical company: 70+ years of remote and local dockside service, panelboard and switchgear manufacturing, parts sales, and more earned us that title.

Story / History


Ward Eshleman, Sr., loved boats. After the end of World War II, he figured he could combine his knowledge of electrical systems with his passion. In 1950, he founded a marine electrical company in his Fort Lauderdale garage. Three generations and 70 years later, Ward's Marine is still going strong.
