Our History

Drafting Equipment Warehouse (DEW) is a family-owned and operated business that was established in 1994. Back then we primarily sold quality, used equipment in our store to our local Architectural, Engineering, and Construction customers. In 1996 we became local representatives for Alvin, Mayline, and Safco which began our sales of NEW products and supplies.

In 1999, as the Internet became a popular business marketing tool, we constructed our first web site and began nationwide web sales in January 2000. We have continued to work and serve our nationwide and local store customer’s needs ever since.
