Going beyond the expected, since 1948


New Castle, PA, November 7, 2016– The Pittsburgh Business Times has named Bruce & Merrilees one of the “Best Places to Work in Western Pennsylvania” for 2016. This is the fourth consecutive year the company has received the award.

“The ‘Best Places to Work’ awards are based solely on employee reviews. It’s rewarding to see that our team members think as highly of us as we think of them,” said Jay Bruce, President and CEO.

Bruce & Merrilees is an electrical construction & services firm headquartered in New Castle, Pennsylvania, with branch offices in Pittsburgh and Bethlehem, PA, Columbus and Steubenville, OH, and Abingdon, MD.
