Introducing the NEW ATEK Distribution

The electrical distribution industry seems to be in a constant state of change. Whether it’s because distributors are changing product lines, adding or removing branches, or being bought out by the big corporate companies. There was a time when most of these businesses were small, family-owned, and operated. You knew everyone by name and could count on the personal integrity of the owners to serve your business needs as if they were their own. You may think those days are gone. Think again!

Let me introduce you to ATEK Distribution. We are a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) wholesale distributor of Electrical Apparatus and Equipment, Wiring Supplies, and Related Equipment. My name is Jeff Anderson, and I’m the President, Co-Founder, and CEO. We started this business from scratch to provide you with the electrical solutions and personal service you expect but often find lacking in our industry today. As an officer in the United States Marine Corps, while serving in the Gulf War and Somalia, I learned the value of hard work, integrity, and the commitment to accomplishing the mission. The mission at ATEK Distribution is to find the right solutions for all your electrical needs. It’s pretty simple: when we help you succeed, we succeed.

Let me share a few examples of past and current projects that prove we can support your local, national, and international needs.


ATEK Distribution worked with the University of Minnesota to provide critical infrastructure for a systems upgrade. The upgrade increased capacity to provide power to 3 new buildings that the university constructed. ATEK provided 15kV medium voltage, vault-mounted SF6 gas switchgear to build out necessary upgrades. The project was part of a larger remodeling project.


ATEK Distribution provided lighting, load centers, panelboards, and miscellaneous electrical materials to support the new construction of state-of-the-art senior living facilities in Ladd, Newton, and Henry, Illinois. These HUD-funded locations were part of a funding initiative by Illinois to increase services in smaller municipalities. Working with a local minority contractor, ATEK got all materials delivered on time and in place.


The United States State Department created a project to modernize and upgrade lighting at the American Embassy in Islamabad, Pakistan. ATEK Distribution provided all of the LED lighting for the UNISON-sourced project. The project resulted in significantly increased energy savings with lower maintenance overhead.

ATEK understands that running a smaller contractor business is difficult enough without unforeseen factors. But during the past several years, contractors have faced challenges in their supply chains and other areas that simply didn’t exist before. ATEK also understands that these small businesses give opportunities to families and communities that larger enterprises just can’t. We are committed to helping those businesses thrive and sustain local economies across the nation.

We support electrical contractors, local government agencies, educational institutions, the USDA, Pope Army Air Base – Ft Bragg, and the state of Minnesota, to name a few. Let us help you complete your projects under budget and on time. As a certified SDVOSB with the VA and state of Minnesota, we can provide the set-asides needed to help you compete for federal and state-funded projects.
