The company was born in Huntington, WV in 1952 when Art Weisberg loaded his pickup truck with light bulbs, extension cords and fuses and hit the road selling to grocery and hardware stores that were so numerous back then.

Weisberg built State Electric around the idea that providing the customer with just a product was not enough. “Beyond quality products and competitive prices,” he says, “the thing that would separate our company from others was service. We believe that making an effort to provide customers with what they need, when they need it, will keep them happy and coming back.
