San Marcos is more than beautiful rivers, education, and good neighbors. It is also the businesses that make up the economy of our city. These businesses are owned and/or operated by our neighbors and often overlooked in the mainstream media.

We sent out questionnaires to dozens of companies in San Marcos and the surrounding areas and will feature a new one each week. If you would like your company featured on an upcoming Business Spotlight, shoot an email to with your fax number and we will send you a questionnaire.

Business Spotlight – Current Electric

“A small contractor with a big contractor’s attitude”-this is the way General Manager Glyn Landrum describes Current Electric Incorporated, a business he and his wife, Pam, started in San Marcos on March 1, 1986.

He explains that the company is big because of the way they treat their employees. Unlike most contractors of CE’s size, the pay is so good-as are the insurance, holiday, vacation and other perks-that employees have been with them for 20 years. Landrum speaks with admiration of Terry, Clay, Jim, Mark and Bill.

He also expresses a big vision for the company. He speaks of “the strategic location” of San Marcos, between San Antonio and Austin. He says, “San Marcos is the hub of south central Texas. We’re able to service a 45 mile radius easier from San Marcos than from anywhere else in this part of the state.”

He also likes his location relative to other locations in San Marcos. “We’re 2 blocks from Highway 123 and a short drive from I-35, where it’s easy to drive to meet customer’s needs to the north and south,” he states.

CE’s ad reads, “Electrical repair jobs big and small”. “Electrical contracting, service and repair,” is the official description. Other specific services include free estimates and a service offered nowhere else in the area that we are aware of, the repair of fine lamps.

Current Electric is located at 500 Broadway. The mailing address is P. O. Box 1241, San Marcos, Texas 78667. Phone 512-353-0141 and fax 512-353-1920. CE’s fascinating website is
