Like electricity itself, you want things to flow. You don’t want electrical parts needs slowing you down. Effortless flow is exactly what you get from Nationwide Electric Supply. We’re not here to simply sell you a part. We’re here to provide you with solutions.
Our expert team and our expansive inventory are here to help with your electric supply needs. Most of our stock is unused and ranges from the obsolete to the newest, latest models. We provide a one-year warranty on all of our reconditioned and new parts, and we’re fully insured. Our inventory is unmatched in the Mid-Atlantic region, and you’re never limited to only one brand or product line. If you need a part we don’t happen to have on the shelf, we can almost certainly obtain it quickly from a number of trusted outside affiliates; we know the right people to call.
No matter how seemingly tough your electrical supply needs may be, you can count on us to save the day.
- Lectrical Liquidators is born. (No, not a typo. They did spell it Lectrical.) The business began in a humble 9,000 sq. ft. warehouse.
- Expanded to a 32,500 sq. ft. warehouse that formerly housed a manufacturer of tobacco flavoring additives.
- Expanded yet again, purchasing a 75,000 sq. ft. building in the Old Manchester area of Richmond, VA. The four-story building was built in the 1930’s and produced parachutes during WWII.
- Changed the name of the company to Nationwide Electric Supply Co., Inc. to better reflect the fact that we help people across the country and beyond with their electrical supply needs.
- Introduced a new website and logo that showcases our international reach, enormous inventory, expertise, and high quality of service.
- Began digitizing our massive inventory and introduced e-commerce to make your shopping experience fast and easy!

Nationwide has saved the day numerous times for us, especially when looking for circuit breakers, transformers, and switchboard parts. Nationwide’s vast inventory and knowledgeable staff have always been very helpful to our business.
THOMAS WADE, VICE PRESIDENT, DOUGLAS L. GILL ELECTRIC
Unlike other companies, they will actually answer the phone on a weekend or late at night and they will always make sure you have material in an emergency situation. They have always been able to supply material when I’ve needed it and in a timely matter. They treat their customers better than family!
LEE LAFOON, PRESIDENT, INDUSTRIAL TECHNICAL SERVICES
Thank you all for your professional help in every aspect of our needs for electrical components. Your wide array of suppliers and your ability to keep pricing under other vendors have helped us to maintain a great working relationship with you.
DAVID PRICE, PURCHASING AGENT, ALLIED CONCRETE PRODUCTS LLC
Nationwide has always given us excellent service over the past 20 years. They have been able to provide hard-to-find electrical items and specialty items that have been able to pull us out of emergency situations on numerous occasions. They have come in on the weekends to provide us with our electrical needs during shutdowns and emergencies from their massive inventory of electrical items. I can’t recall a time when they haven’t had what I needed or weren’t able to get it for me quickly.
LEWIS CABLE, PRESIDENT, C&C ELECTRICAL SERVICE, INC.
I received a call late one afternoon from a local hospital. A 500 KVA transformer had shorted out and brought most of the building systems down with it. It’s not like you are going to pick up one of those at corner store, or at a local electrical supply house for that matter. Well, any supply house that will meet me at 10:30pm, sell me a 500 KVA transformer, and load it on my trailer in less than an hour is a REAL supply house! The following morning, the hospital staff never even knew there was a problem. Life was good thanks to Nationwide Electric Supply Co.
BRUCE FOLKES, PRESIDENT, FOLKES ELECTRICAL CONSTRUCTION
They have what we need for special vintage parts that you can’t find anywhere else as well as new. The staff is highly helpful and dependable; they never let me down.
RON BARNES, PLANT ENGINEER, DEAN FOODS – PET DAIRY

BILL FOWLER, LOGISTICS COORDINATOR, TATE & HILL, INC.
My experience with Nationwide Electric Supply over the past 20 years has been excellent. All transactions were handled professionally and to my satisfaction. I will continue to do business with the knowledgeable staff that awaits my phone call.
BEVERLY W. BRUCE, BASIC ELECTRIC SALES, INC.
Just a quick note of appreciation. Yesterday I had a trouble call from one of our best customers Lee-Hy Paving Corp. They had an 800 amp service switch with a bad phase and needed to be able to run their plant in Rockville asap. I did not hold much hope of finding a replacement to swap parts from but we decided that if anyone would be able to help us it would be Nationwide. Our VP Glenn Paine call your salesman Dale and we were told that you did not have the 800 amp switch but would take a look and see if he had another switch or parts that might work. Glenn received a call from Dale a short time later to inform us that he had a 1200 amp switch that had the same part # of the component we were looking for. Glenn was able to Bring me the 1200 amp switch which had the identical parts we needed with in about 90 minutes and I was able to swap the parts in just a few more. I can say without a doubt that our customer was more than thrilled with our service and speedy response to get them back online and their plant up and running. I just wanted to express how grateful we were that Dale went the extra step to help us find a replacement. Dale made us look really good yesterday. Thank you.
