Harrisburg, Pennsylvania-based electrical distributor Schaedler Yesco Distribution has announced plans to support its growing western Pennsylvania and eastern Ohio markets by restructuring its western sales team.

Earlier this year, the company announced plans to open a 90,000-square-foot facility in Lower Burrell, Pennsylvania. Since then, the building has been gutted and rebuilt to support a new counter area, a larger inventory and wire services, a large conference and training room and additional square footage to support new services, Schaedler Yesco said.

The new space is expected to serve as both a local branch and a regional distribution center (RDC). It is expected to open in October.

Todd Smith, Distribution Center Manager, and Matt Snyder, Assistant Warehouse Manager, will manage the new RDC, the company said.

Aside from physical infrastructure, Schaedler Yesco also said it has restructured its sales team to focus on market specifics and enhance local leadership:

  • Matt Evans, Regional Vice President, oversees the company’s westernmost market and is responsible for the development and execution of sales strategies while fostering meaningful relationships with key customers and vendors.
  • Evans is supported by Jon Blanchette, Outside Sales Manager, and Gary Meanor, Director of Branch Sales.
  • Brett Sanders, Construction Solutions Manager, oversees the Construction Services Team of local lighting specialists, gear specialists, and project coordinators in support of their contractor customers.

“Supporting the market is more than just having local product availability,” President Farrah Mittel said. “It’s the whole package. It’s having local, experienced team members who can work directly with customers to meet their specific needs. It’s being an agile, independent distributor who isn’t mired in red tape when developing unique solutions. And it’s having a solid foundation to make necessary investments to support growth.”

Schaedler Yesco was ranked No. 47 on Electrical Wholesaling’s 2023 Top 150 Distributors List, with $294 million in 2022 revenue.
