Essex North Shore Agricultural & Technical School Partners with Nardone Electric Corporation to Enhance Campus Infrastructure

Danvers, MA – March 20, 2024– Essex North Shore Agricultural & Technical School (ENSATS) is proud to announce its collaboration with Nardone Electric Corporation, a family-owned electrical contracting firm serving Massachusetts and parts of New England. Nardone Electric has generously donated several hours of consulting services for the building of Catherine Larkin Memorial Cottage that will serve as an agricultural museum and function facility.

As part of its commitment to the project, Nardone Electric conducted a comprehensive review of electrical plans and provided invaluable insights to ensure the seamless integration of modern electrical systems within the renovated space. This contribution aligns with ENSATS’s ongoing efforts to enhance its facilities and create a conducive environment for learning and innovation.

In addition to its consulting services, Nardone Electric Corporation donated more than 2000 feet of fire alarm cable to ENSATS. The donated materials will significantly contribute to the advancement of the electrical and fire alarm systems.

A highlight of this collaboration was a student workday event organized by Nardone Electric, where ENSATS electrical program students received the opportunity to receive hands-on training from industry professionals. The event enhanced the practical skills of students and provided them with real-world insights into the installation processes of electrical and fire alarm systems.

Essex North Shore Superintendent Dr. Heidi Riccio, expressed gratitude for the strong community partnership with Nardone Electric Corporation. “We are incredibly fortunate to have the support of our trade organizations like Nardone Electric.
