NECA, would like to acknowledge the huge contribution that Nigel Peck has made to the electrical contracting industry over almost half a century,” says Mr Suresh Manickam, NECA CEO.  “Nigel founded NHP in 1968, and went on to spend 45 years at the helm.  NHP is one of the most respected brands in the industry.  It is very sad news to hear that he died on Saturday and our thoughts are with his family – and all of those who worked with him at NHP, and across the industry,” Mr Manickam added.
