About Us


A.C. Scott Electric Company was established in 1967 by Dexter C. Ricker and Frederik C. Nielsen as a partnership. On May 14, 1968 the company succeeded to incorporate. With the resignation of Dexter C. Ricker in 1984, Frederik C. Nielsen and his wife, Maiken Nielsen obtained 100% ownership of the corporation. From this point forward, A.C. Scott Electric Co., Inc. was operated as a “family-owned” small business enterprise in the State of New Jersey. Frederik and Maiken retired from the day to day operation of the corporation in 1999, relinquishing ownership and operational control to their son, Michael C. Nielsen.
