Congratulations to RMA member, Arthur’s Electric Services!

Celebrating 95 years in business  –  1923-2018

The business goes back to 1923, when John D. Arthur started the business as an automotive electrical service.

In 1946 the business became incorporated. As the 50’s rolled around, small gas powered engines came on the scene. Mr. Arthur’s son, Virgil, became President of Arthur’s, and he saw the growing interest and demand in these products and decided to add small engine sales, lawnmowers, parts, and service to the business.

By the early 60’s, the small engine parts, service, and equipment side of the business had grown tremendously. (Also, during this time, Virgil’s  sons became active in go carting and went on to claim the  Va. State Championship in carting one year.)  The decision was finally made to drop automotive and go totally small engine/outdoor power- encouraged by his sons interest in joining the business.

Today, the business is owned by the original owner’s grandson, who started working full-time at the business in the 70’s, and is currently the president of the company.
