The Nelson Story

Nelson & Associates was founded in 1977.

Back then, it operated with only six employees in a 5,000 sq. ft. building.

Today, Nelson is owned and run by Brian Haupt. We have a multi-state presence, 100,000 square feet in facility space, and over 50 employees. A strategic, ambitious philosophy drives us forward – with strong support from our manufacturers and distributors.

Why us?

Our commitment to quality is second to none. We’ve been connecting the dots for electrical manufacturers, distributors, contractors, and end-users for over 45 years. And we do this ‘the Nelson way’ – to build long-lasting relationships on trust, sincerity, and knowledge.

Our values


Collaborative partnerships

We believe in the power of teamwork. And this extends to our manufacturers and distributors – where we become true partners.

A commitment to quality

From the products we sell to our dedication to being the best partner we can be.

Creative leadership

We always have an eye on the future. And we are constantly looking for different ways to solve problems.


When we say we will do something, we will always do it. We know that success isn’t just about getting sales, but doing it the right way.


We give businesses the fuel they need to flourish. While also driving personal growth and constant improvement. And we use every bit of our knowledge to make this happen.
