History

Nickey A Bowman founded Bowman Electric Company in 1958 and NABCO (Nickey A Bowman Company) in 1962. He believed that there was a place in the electrical construction industry for a company that was totally committed to craftsmanship of the highest quality.

Here at NABCO, we have continued to follow that commitment to quality craftsmanship and it has led us to success by making us the only option for many of our customers throughout the Southeast.
