Ross Electric was started in 1955 by Robert H. Ross, after his retirement from the Air Force. The goal of Ross Electric has always been to serve the San Antonio area with quality electrical wiring at fair prices. The large group of repeat business customers, some dating back to 1955, validates the business plan Mr. Ross envisioned. The company takes an active role in the community and local organizations, including animal causes, the Salvation Army, and sponsorship of childrens sports activities.
