Our History

Founded in 1924 by the Schaedler Brothers of Steelton, PA, Schaedler Yesco Distribution is nearly as old as electricity itself. Although the company’s birthdate is 1924, the family is rooted in the electrical industry since the late 1800s. As electrical contractors, Andrew and William both assisted in the construction of the Pennsylvania State Capitol building. Many years later, Schaedler Yesco once again brushed with the Capitol, receiving recognition for serving the community for 95 years.
