Nickle Electrical Companies was founded in 1986 as Paul A. Nickle, Inc., performing small commercial and service work in Delaware. In 1991, current owners Steve and Debbie Dignan acquired the company and over the next 30 years expanded Nickle into a multi-million-dollar business. In 2008, the name was changed to Nickle Electrical Companies to better reflect the company as a whole. The organization now performs commercial, industrial, residential, and service work throughout the entire state of Delaware, southeast Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and the Eastern Shore of Maryland and Virginia.

Even though the industries we specialize in have evolved, and technology is constantly progressing, our core values and beliefs have remained the same for more than three decades. We are strongly dedicated to innovation, safety, and fostering lasting partnerships with our clients and building strong relationships with our employees.
