About the Telecom Experts at sandman.com®

Established in 1990

Trusted Since 1990!

For over 34 years, sandman.com® has been a trusted supplier for the telecom industry.

sandman.com, Inc. (formerly Mike Sandman Enterprises) was founded by Mike Sandman (Chicago's Telecom Expert) in 1990.

Over the years, we've developed hundreds of unique problem solving devices that make life easier for phone men (and women) and IT and security professionals.

The company started by selling one type of replacement hookswitch (out of Mike's garage) and within 10 years expanded to a 108 page printed catalog of essentials for telecom professionals. We were also one of the first telecom distributors with a website, click here to check out our original site from 1996.

Replacement handsets quickly became a best seller and requests for specialty handsets (such as push-to-talk, amplified and noise-cancelling) led the company establish an in-house manufacturing division.

The in-house manufacturing division evolved to include design and production of hundreds of unique troubleshooting devices used by tens of thousands of telecommunications professionals in the United States and around the world.

Custom Telco Cable Assemblies were also a popular item and in 2017 sandman.com® acquired West Data and brought custom cable assembly and wiring harness production capabilities in-house.

In 2024, we became an ISO 9001:2015 Certified manufacturer with a focus on specialty handsets and custom cable assemblies and wiring harnesses.

Today, our experienced staff provides expert advice and quality US based manufacturing capabilities to help our customers make IT work.
