About Us

In 1957, Norman Aronson opened his doors for business at 14 Rittenhouse Place in Philadelphia’s historic Main Line. More than half a century later his children and grandchildren are still running the business at the same location.

What started as a small “mom and pop” store, selling basic electrical supplies and a few light fixtures, today has grown into the area’s best lighting showroom and electrical supply counter. Rittenhouse Electric services every aspect of the electrical distribution and lighting industry. Our customers range from electricians, builders and general contractors to architects, interior designers, lighting designers and home owners. Rittenhouse Electric has made a name for itself by specializing in high-end decorative lighting and offering lighting design service. We are also known in the area as the leader in lighting control expertise. Our certified lighting control sales people handle design, programming and material, and will work with your electrician or contractor to ensure smooth implementation of your lighting control project.

Here at Rittenhouse Electric you’ll find all the personal touches you would expect from a small family-owned business – like our friendly, knowledgeable sales people that know the customers by name, and our same-day delivery to electrical supply counter customers. We also provide all the services you would expect from a large, well-established business – like the hundreds of lighting lines we carry, and our ability to competitively bid large commercial jobs.

At Rittenhouse Electric we have built our business, one customer at a time, on a rock solid commitment to customer service. Come in and experience it for yourself!
