Schaedler Yesco, a fourth-generation family and employee owned company, was founded in 1924 and is headquartered in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.

Today, the company is a leading wholesale distributor of electrical supplies, datacomm, automation, and commercial and residential lighting products in central Pennsylvania. It has 22 sites across Pennsylvania, including key locations such as Pittsburgh, Harrisburg and Allentown.
