In 1982, Martin (Marty) E. Darrah formed Northwest Communications Systems in Tacoma, Washington. Our privately owned communications company grew rapidly due to our commitment to achieve complete customer satisfaction, by providing top quality productions, customer service and technical support. Success came quickly as profits were made from the beginning.

1984 brought the opportunity to become an authorized dealer for Toshiba America, Inc., and Iwatsu American, Inc., manufacturers of two of the top products on in the telecommunications market. The opportunity was seized. These resourceful systems further strengthened Northwest Communications Systems reputation by providing a high quality product line at a fair price.

As technology advanced, a new segment in the telecommunications industry arose, “Voice Processing.” In 1990 Northwest Communications Systems became an authorized dealer for Applied Voice Technology, a leader in call processing applications.

In 1991 Northwest Communications Systems acquired a master franchise from Communication World International. We then became Communication World Northwest. That move made Communication World Northwest (now CommWorld Northwest) the largest Toshiba dealer in the Puget Sound Region, and part of the largest purchaser of Toshiba and Applied Voice Technology products in the United States.

Between 1992 and 1993, CommWorld Northwest continued to grow by providing clients from Portland, Oregon to Bellingham, Washington high quality service, technical support, and communication advice while exploring, testing and adding new and innovative communications products to our product line.

In 1993, CommWorld Northwest merged with Scott Communications, a strong Iwatsu based company. This merger strengthened our management and technical support team. CommWorld Northwest chose to merge with Scott Communications for many reasons, the primary reason being both companies believed in the same principle: total commitment to superior customer service and satisfaction. By merging we provide an even higher level of service and satisfaction.

Marty Darrah says, "We will continue matching superior products with quality service at a reasonable rate. This guarantee will always be the pattern for success at CommWorld Northwest."
