Our mission was to offer the best service possible and to make sure we had the right inventory when the customer called. The same is true today as NEDCO has become the leading electrical distributor in the state. NEDCO is ranked in the top 100 electrical distributors in the U.S. from a single branch location in Las Vegas, Nevada.
