Spitzer A & I

The company began as Spitzer Electrical Co. in 1922 in Denver, CO, selling and servicing magnetos and batteries. In 1945, Benjamin A. Spitzer, founder, felt that there was a need to expand to southeastern New Mexico to serve the farming and ranching communities here. Roswell was the chosen location, with operations beginning here in August, 1945.

Wilbur Wyatt was sent from the Albuquerque store to open and manage the Roswell site, which began under the name of Roswell Distributing Company at 217 West Second Street. This name was soon changed to the Spitzer Electrical Company since customers here had been served since the early thirties from Spitzer in Albuquerque and Denver.

In 1948 the company moved to 113 South Main where a service department was opened to serve the area. In 1951 the company moved to 216 W. Second because wholesale auto parts, the backbone of their business was not convenient at the South Main location.

Spitzer remained on West Second until 1960, when a final move was necessitated by the widening of Second Street, leaving Spitzer with no parking area. That move was to 511 South Virginia Ave. where Spitzer A & I remains today. The land was purchased in the early seventies. Israel Campos became the manager in 1998.
