A Note from Our Owner:

Some companies may see the phrase 'custom switchboard builders' and automatically associate expensive with custom. This is not necessarily the case. Many times in the field special conduit configurations must be made to fit mass produced switchboards. At Peterson, we can make special adaptors or other devices to help make the install as quick and easy as possible. By doing this for our customers, job time costs are significantly reduced and end up costing less than buying a national switchboard. Richard M. Todd, Sr. (former President) believed that, "Expensive is Cheap, and Cheap is Expensive." Sometimes this really is true. Give Peterson a try, you will not be disappointed.

About Us:

Since the beginning, we have built custom service and distribution equipment. We continue to increase and improve our product line, including: panels for lighting and power, tap boxes to utility company specifications, special enclosures, special buss work, switchboard conversions and additions, wire-ways and more. Peterson equipment is manufactured to follow specifications of the Underwriters Laboratories (U.L.). We adhere to all NEMA, National and other prevalent codes to ensure quality and safety in our product. All products are manufactured by members of the Sheet Metal Local 73 and International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 134.

We carry a computerized inventory so there is no delay for our customers who need immediate service. In fact, Peterson is very well known for our dedication to our customers and product. Emergencies can happen at any time and Peterson is always ready for them. While most orders take 2-3 weeks to complete, by special request we have been known to deliver in 2-3 days. All of our drawings are engineered here in our office on a CAD system by highly trained professionals. Peterson currently works with customers from all around the world and continues to exemplify the standard in quality and service.
