After nearly returning its revenue to its pre-pandemic levels, Nickle Electrical Cos. attributes its success to having employees that “are as dedicated as they are adaptable,” especially when it came to remote work during the pandemic. “Nickle’s field employees continued working at job sites as essential workers amid the uncertainty and stress of a pandemic, a large mental health feat that can’t be overlooked,” the firm says.  

The Newark, Del.-based firm with two offices in Delaware also attributes recent success to the expansion of the organization’s CAD/BIM and pre-fab departments. Expanding its pre-fab facility by 2,000 sq ft and doubling its crew allowed the firm to churn out vast amounts of material and components that result in more consistent installs, fewer on-site errors, better organization, and even a reduced project timeline, the firm says. 

Nickle will be recognized at the ENR MidAtlantic awards banquet on Oct. 25 in Baltimore. The firm will also be featured in the December issue of ENR MidAtlantic. 

The firm’s top projects include the Incyte Headquarters in Wilmington, a renovation of University of Delaware’s athletic field, now called Whitney Athletic Center and the Beebe South Coastal Campus Emergency Department & Cancer Center.

Nickle contributes to the community through sponsorships, volunteer events, mentoring programs, sitting on the board of directors for local non-profit organizations, fundraising efforts for veterans, school supply donations, and much more. 

In 2021, Nickle ranked No. 16 on the ENR MidAtlantic Specialty Contractor rankings with $36.7 million in regional revenue. To find out where the firm ranks this year, check out the December issue of ENR MidAtlantic.
