ILSCO is led by CEO Andrew Quinn and is headquartered in Cincinnati with seven distribution centers and more than 1,000 employees. The company was founded in 1894 as the Incandescent Light and Stove Co. and is a third-generation, family-owned business. “This is a very exciting time for ILSCO as we start the next phase of our business with ECM,” said Mr. Quinn. “We are very proud of what we have built in our 126-year history and, with our complimentary organizations and product lines, we will accelerate our growth and presence in the electrical industry.” ECM is a manufacturer and supplier of electrical products and maintains an inventory of more than 3,000 SKUs that are used in the construction, maintenance, lighting, irrigation, landscape supply, and gas utility markets.

The company is led by CEO Mike Masino and operates through six facilities with headquarters just west of Milwaukee in New Berlin, Wisconsin. “The acquisition of ILSCO adds an industry-leading brand with best in class power connectors and grounding solutions.
