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