Our History

In the 1950s, Henderson worked on big projects allowing us to be trusted in Kentucky as one of the most capable electrical contractors in the region. Major projects were completed at the Kentucky Fair and Exposition Center, the G.E. Appliance Park, and the International Harvester’s Farm Machinery foundry and manufacturing operation.

1919 - Our Start

Our founder, Harry Henderson started the Henderson Electric Company supplying products and equipment to electrical contracting businesses in Louisville, KY.

1920s & 1930s – Our Transformation

Henderson Electrical Company went from supplying electrical contracting businesses to becoming one.

We joined the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) in 1924 and still hold membership to this day.

1950s – Positioning Ourselves in the Industry

In the 1950s, Henderson worked on big projects allowing us to be trusted in Kentucky as one of the most capable electrical contractors in the region. Major projects were completed at the Kentucky Fair and Exposition Center, the G.E. Appliance Park, and the International Harvester’s Farm Machinery foundry and manufacturing operation.

1960s – Creating a Home in Lexington

In 1960, Henderson opened another office in Lexington, KY to better serve the rapidly growing central Kentucky market. Within a few short years, our Lexington office was managing major projects for the University of Kentucky, the Commonwealth of Kentucky, and our state’s capitol, Frankfort, KY.

1980s – Toyota Partnership

In 1986, we opened a field office on the construction site of a new and upcoming automotive assembly plant in Georgetown, KY. This well-known plant is the Toyota Motor Manufacturing company. Due to our involvement in its construction, we have established a lasting relationship with Toyota and still have a permanent presence on-site.

1990s – Growth of our Customer Base

As our customer base expanded, so did our need to prepare for management succession and continue our quality service. In order to do this, Henderson Electric Company, Inc. merged with five other prominent national contractors to form Nationwide Electric, Inc. (NEI) in 1998. A year later NEI was purchased by a large publicly held Canadian corporation by the name of Bracknell (TSE: BRK). During our time with Bracknell, we served customers throughout North America.

Early 2000s – Company Name Change

In 2001, Bracknell unfortunately closed due to the construction and telecommunications market slowing down. On December 1, 2001 the Henderson management group repurchased the assets of the Henderson Electric Company, Inc. and began operating as Henderson Services, LLC. We wanted our name change to highlight the many other services we provide in addition to traditional electrical construction.

Now & Forever – Our Commitment

Henderson has embraced changes without losing sight of the tradition of quality performance, passion for customer service, and the safety of our team and yours. This tradition continues on as we mark 102 years of serving our old Kentucky home. To continue the vision of our founder, Harry Henderson, we strive to keep these values while embracing the use of new technology and providing world-class performance in all aspects of our services.

Safety

Leaders & Educators in Safety

Henderson Services has always been viewed as the safety leader in the electrical industry. We are passionate about safety for our customers and community. It’s our goal to share that passion and help educate, train, and equip safety leaders through our Training Center. With an experienced and qualified staff ready to serve, we are eager to help make your operation the safest it can be. We offer NFPA 70E Training to inform you of best electrical safety work practices and First Aid, CPR, and AED training for unexpected emergencies possible to occur at your work site. You can check out the info for Safety Education & Training here.

Prioritizing Safety from Our Training to Our Service

Here at Henderson, we practice what we preach which means we bring these same safety training standards to our on-site construction. We are very pleased to announce that Henderson Services, LLC recently surpassed 6.9 million man-hours without a lost time injury!

At Henderson Services, our employees are our most valuable assets, and their safety is an integral part of our Company’s culture. Our Company holds employees and field staff at every level responsible for maintaining a safe workplace. We specialize in providing a strong safety program which protects our employees, field personnel and clients from workplace accidents.

We believe that holding our team to a high standard of safety and constantly improving on-site communications will create an environment where safety is both expected and rewarded. This commitment consistently places our safety program as one of the best in the industry.  To ensure that safety remains uncompromised, each employee receives training on potential hazards, preventative actions and OSHA regulations. All Foreman and electricians are trained in NFPA 70E Safe Work Practices and receive either OSHA 10 or 30-hour trained. In addition, all employees are provided with proper PPE equipment and training. Our commitment to safety is at the core of Henderson Services!

These safety milestones have led to Henderson Services receiving many awards including the Thomas J. Reynolds Safety Excellence Award in 2018, in addition to the 2018 Kentucky Labor Cabinet Governor’s Safety & Health Award.

Our success is largely due to the implementation of a company-wide safety “culture” that is driven from the top down and bottom up. The safety commitment from our project management team and all of our employees has made this safety milestone a reality. We want to commend each and every Henderson Services employee for their hard work and the unwavering dedication to our “total safety system.”
