Putzel, Rich in History

1998 Marked the 105th year in business.
2008 marks the beginning of a company with over a Century of experience.

The Company was founded in Macon, Georgia by Morris Putzel in 1893, only five years after the
electric light bulb was patented.

During the company's early days, Morris Putzel and his brother Isadore installed direct current power plants in middle Georgia. They also converted gas-lit buildings to electric and installed distribution systems and electric lighting throughout middle Georgia. As Macon grew, so did Putzel, gaining a reputation for reliability, superior performance and competitive pricing. Long time president, Morris Purcel, sold Putzel Electric in 2001 but could not resist the challenge to start again and build another great company.

Putzel Electric was started again in 2008 by Morris Purcel and a skilled management team and field staff. President, Nick Young, and Director of Field Operations Bert Wise are leading the charge today as Putzel moves forward. Putzel continues to grow, constantly exploring new ways to improve its operations and broaden its horizons. With a large employee roster, the company is licensed throughout the Southeast. Putzel has proven experience in construction of manufacturing and industrial plants, hospitals, laboratories, as a positive member of construction teams throughout the Southeast committed to the excellence of design and installation of a full range of electrical systems, and meeting the industry’s challenges today and in the future. Today, Putzel is growing to be one of the most successful commercial electrical firms in Atlanta.
