Yale Electric Supply Co. Inc., Lebanon, Pa., was incorrectly omitted from this year's Top 200 listing. With a 2002 sales increase of 37 percent, Yale Electric logged 2002 sales at $36 million. Yale Electric should have ranked approximately No. 135 on the list.
Unfortunately, Yale Electric did not receive Electrical Wholesaling's Top 200 survey, and the editors were forced to estimate the central Pennsylvania distributor's sales. With electrical distributors among the Top 200 averaging a 3.6 percent decline, our estimates were low. We apologize for the error.
In 2002, Yale Electric acquired United Electric, Harrisburg, Pa., and opened a branch in Lancaster, Pa., bringing its total locations to six and its employee count to 150. The full-line independent electrical distributor is a member of IMARK and projects 2003 to be another significant growth year.
