About Us
For over 70 years, Cardello Electric has been providing its customers with premium products and superior service.
At Cardello Electric Supply & Lighting, we strive to be a trusted resource and valuable partner to consumers & businesses alike. Our company was founded in 1947 by Nicholas J. Cardello, Sr. With $327 in cash, he began selling and installing flourescent fixtures out of his car and living room. From these humble beginnings, we have grown into one of the largest family owned and operated electrical distributors in the region, offering 7 locations throughout the tri-state area. 

Why Cardello?

Cardello is committed to providing quality products and services while offering a positive environment where customers want to shop and employees want to work.  We aim to operate our business with honesty, fairness, integrity and a strong commitment to our communities. Whether you are a contractor, builder, property manager, or a “Do it Yourself”-er, we will get you the best price and assist you from concept to completion. We are large enough to take on big jobs but small enough to know you by first name. Stop in today to experience the “Cardello Difference.”

Our Products

We carry over 35,000 top of the line electrical products. From the everyday residential items to the hard to find commercial and industrial components.

Central Distribution Center

Located in Pittsburgh’s North Shore, Cardello Electric’s innovative Central Distribution Center is a hub for delivery, receiving and will call. Our extensive warehouse ensures that you have what you need, when it’s needed. Every morning, trucks filled with product head out to replenish the inventory at each of our branches. If something you need isn’t in stock at your local Cardello Electric counter, we will have it transferred overnight from the CDC.
