Bruce Locker, Robertson Electric

“I grew up in the small town of Gordonsville. Our goal is to give each of our customers the same small-town service I grew up with.”

Bill Robertson opened a one-man electrical business out of the basement of his home in Charlottesville. That was 1968. Over the years he added additional services, like plumbing, heating, and air conditioning, slowly growing his business. Bruce Locker (right) joined Robertson in March of 1977 and became president and part owner in 1994. Today, Robertson Electric has about 50 employees, making it one of the largest full-service companies in our area. Robertson Electric has been in business for over 42 years; and some of their customers have been with them since the beginning. That’s what we call loyalty! The late Bill Robertson attributed the company’s success to a commitment of providing the best possible service to customers and to retaining a great staff. And Locker is continuing in that tradition, working to keep local homes in tip-top shape throughout the year. Robertson Electric is locally owned and operated, and buys materials at the local level as often as possible. Locker says, “We try to keep things in the local economy. We are believers in supporting our neighbors.” From parts to materials to financing — Locker and company share the local love throughout the Charlottesville community.
