Concord Electric Supply/CES Opens First Location on Nantucket

Sept. 12, 2023
CES began the process of opening its first location on Nantucket in 2016. Seven years later, the branch is ready to serve the island.
Concord Electric Supply (CES) has opened a branch on the island of Nantucket, off Cape Cod, MA. Officially open and ready to serve customers, the company set a goal to open a location over seven years ago. On an island the size of 49 square miles, this branch sits at 4,000 sq ft with outside storage. CES Nantucket is located about half a mile from the airport, closer to the middle of the island.

CES has wanted to open since 2016 when District Manager Jeremy Higgins discovered there was a building available through a friend on the island. Relationships have helped get this location open from the beginning. “One of my friends was an electrical inspector on the island and told me about this building,” said Higgins in the press release. “It popped up at what we thought was perfect timing. We came over, bought the building, and decided to put an apartment upstairs to have employee housing. The location for this branch is perfect. It’s on a lot in the middle of the island, and the building needed minimal work done.”

 CES Nantucket will be led by Branch Manager Kevin Kitsock. Kevin has 30 years of trade experience, moving to Nantucket in 1993 with previous experience working on Martha’s Vineyard and in New York. “My operations manager, Alec Conn, knows the product very well, and he’s great with our computer system. My counter guy has over 50 years of experience in the trade industry and is a former electrician himself,” said Kitsock in the release.  “He set up all of our shelves and knows everything we have in this building, inside and out.”
