Schaedler Yesco Celebrating 100 Years in Business

HARRISBURG, Pa. – In marking its 100th year of operation, Schaedler Yesco Distribution is celebrating its past while embracing its future.

The fourth-generation family- and employee-owned company started the year by celebrating the acquisition of two new locations in Grove City and Clarion, Pa., bringing its total to 29 locations throughout Pennsylvania, Ohio and New York. The acquisitions further solidified the company’s commitment to the western Pennsylvania and eastern Ohio markets and continued its growth plan, a news release states.

In March, the company, which offers services and products for lighting, data networking, automation and industrial needs, presented its 2024 Expo East at the Hershey Convention Center. The event, held biannually, drew more than 1,100 people and offered over 75 learning opportunities and more than 100 exhibits and hands-on demonstrations, including a live EV charger demonstration. The 2024 Expo West will be held in September at River’s Casino in Pittsburgh, the first expo in the company’s western territory.

“It’s an exciting year for us,” said Farrah Mittel, Schaedler Yesco president. “We’re growing. We’re planning an event unlike any other the western [Pennsylvania] market has ever seen, and it’s our anniversary year. There’s a lot to celebrate.”

Although operational since October, Schaedler Yesco’s new 90,000-square-foot Regional Distribution Center just north of Pittsburgh recently celebrated its grand opening with training sessions, vendor displays, tours of the facility and a barbecue lunch. The crowd of customers and vendors was joined by city officials welcoming the company to Lower Burrell, Pa.

Schaedler Yesco will present a variety of events and promotions throughout the year to celebrate the milestone with customers. The company will gather all employees and their guests in Harrisburg in October for a night of festivities and fun to culminate the centennial year.
