Branden Shuler has owned and operated DES of Wilmington, Inc., since 2004 but has been in the industry since 1996. At the age of 15, after a wiring mishap on his own car stereo system, Branden discovered his passion for installation and customization. From there he got a job at Sound Station and Security, where he gained necessary knowledge and experience to move up in the industry. He then went on to Audio Express where he learned the ins and outs of his company today. During his five years as a technician at Audio Express, he developed and refined his skills, ultimately making the decision to go into business for himself. Prioritizing quality craftsmanship and service has helped Branden to grow DES from a one-man operation to a facility with 8 employees, including 5 technicians, and several porters servicing the East coast from Myrtle Beach to New Bern.
