We’ve discovered that the key to building trusting relationships is the time that is spent doing the small things.

All of those things are centered around observing details and acting accordingly.

With a rich history spanning over 100 years, we’ve consistently proven ourselves as the go-to partner for businesses seeking top-notch electrical solutions, preventive maintenance, and safety education training.

A Century of Trust: Our Legacy in Kentucky

We know that part of building trust is seeing proven experience and expertise. 

Henderson began in 1919 after WWI. Electricity was fairly new, and Harry Henderson began by selling incandescent light bulbs, which they would later begin to install. That simple service eventually built a culture of family and safety over the years. Even today, that culture has brought a focus to long-term relationships with clients that have been built over the decades. 

What sets Henderson Services apart is its enduring legacy. With over a century of experience, we’ve built lasting relationships with businesses across Kentucky. This longevity speaks volumes about our commitment to excellence and our ability to adapt to the evolving needs of the industry.

Projects that Define Excellence: Services Beyond the Basics

Henderson's range of services goes beyond standard electrical solutions. Here are some key projects we excel at:

Preventive Maintenance:

We understand the importance of proactive measures in maintaining electrical systems. Our preventive maintenance solutions are designed to identify and rectify potential issues before they escalate, ensuring uninterrupted operations for businesses. Some of these solutions include:

Infrared Thermography

Infrared Thermography (IR) is a niche service that is visual and contactless energized maintenance that is performed while equipment is still working to make sure that it is operating correctly so that you don't have unexpected outages.

Arc Flash Analysis

An Arc Flash Hazard Analysis, or more commonly known as an Arc Flash Study, is a comprehensive electrical system analysis that is designed to evaluate the potential available incident energy specific to electrical equipment during a fault event. Having this knowledge will allow organizations to not only abide by the rulings set forth in the latest editions of OSHA (29 CFR 1910.269), and NFPA (130.5 C), but an arc flash study will also gain them a piece of mind.

Breaker Testing

Breaker Testing and maintenance are critical, especially when caring for aging electrical systems. Testing breakers is like an annual physical. It allows us to track trends in the breaker’s performance. This allows Henderson to help you know when it’s the right time to replace underperforming or unsafe breakers, mitigating unscheduled outages of key equipment or electrical injury due to breakers not performing properly.

Facility Maintenance

From routine inspections to emergency repairs, Henderson offers comprehensive facility maintenance services. Their proactive approach minimizes downtime and extends the lifespan of electrical systems. This maintenance includes:

Electrical Construction

For those embarking on new construction projects or expanding existing facilities, Our expertise in electrical construction ensures that systems are installed with precision, adhering to the highest industry standards. This means that we provide turnkey solutions for your construction needs, specialized expertise in new construction, renovations, and expansion, as well as solutions for projects of various sizes and scopes.

In conclusion, Henderson Services has worked hard to build trust with countless companies in the Kentucky area. Our detailed process, combined with a century-long legacy of excellence and a diverse range of projects, makes us the preferred choice for businesses seeking top-tier electrical solutions. When it comes to electrical services, we’re more than just a provider; we are a reliable partner in powering Kentucky's progress.

At Henderson, our electrical services have kept you in business for over 100 years. Unfortunately, we’ve seen time and time again what happens when businesses ignore their electrical needs. What happens is major financial blows due to unplanned shutdowns, OSHA fines, and replacement of damaged equipment. So if you are beginning to realize your business is in need of electrical maintenance, here are a few of the ways we get the job done:

Henderson Offers Emergency Electrical Services

Things happen, and you don’t always see them coming. This can be very true of electrical equipment in your facility. When something goes wrong, the last place you want to be is in a position where you have no idea who to call. Henderson Services has 24-hour emergency services that are always available to any of our customers. Whether you are dealing with electrical or communication issues, we are here to troubleshoot any problems that may arise. Why do we offer this? Because our business is keeping you in business.

Imagine you work at a car manufacturing plant, and suddenly, there’s a malfunction, and you lose power to your entire building. That is obviously a major issue. Henderson Services exists to respond quickly to your call and find out where the problem originated and the best solution to getting the power back on safely. While our electrical maintenance service will be on full display, we can also offer any business our preventive maintenance services will help identify a problem long before a catastrophic failure occurs.

The expert knowledge of our experienced team allows us to assess problems and find solutions, no matter how complicated your infrastructure is. We have seen, time and time again, how this quick response has helped people stay in business when they couldn’t see a way forward. 

Facility Maintenance is Peace of Mind

There’s a reason the saying, “Hindsight is 20/20,” is a popular saying; because people experience it all the time. The decision is clear when you already know the outcome. However, many facilities like to ignore this sentiment regarding the electrical maintenance of their facility. Without any preventive maintenance in place, you’re left asking, “What if?” What if something goes wrong? What if we get fined? What if we get shut down? However, with Henderson Services, that question can become a definitive statement. Instead of asking, “What if?” you’ll be saying, “If it does, we’ll be covered.” 

When you let our experienced electricians take care of your facility maintenance, you are giving yourself peace of mind, ensuring the safety and well-being of your employees, and gaining the assurance that you’ve followed OSHA guidelines set in place. In addition, you can rest easy knowing that your facility is moving forward with a clear vision.

Technology Infrastructure Brings Your Facility into the Tomorrow

Depending on your industry, you may have various technological needs that keep your facility running. Whether it’s telecommunications, such as telephone systems, or security systems, like CCTV surveillance cameras, we can install the technology you need. In addition, as a company that has been in the electrical business for over 100 years, we can offer you industry-proven wisdom about what technology may be the best fit for your facility.

Ultimately, we want to do more than offer commercial electrical services to businesses in need. Our mission is to create and maintain long-term relationships built on trust. Partnering with Henderson Services offers you comfort and expertise, backed by the knowledge that the job will get done right the first time. So contact us today to solve your electrical needs!

In 1964, Bob Dylan released what would become one of the most known and listened-to songs ever released. This song, “The Times They Are A-Changin,” while being political in nature, at its core, touched on a recognition of what we all know to be true: time changes things. Part of the reason the song is still so successful today is that its key theme is still so relevant. The times are constantly changing, so what will we do to change with them? 

Henderson has changed with the times throughout our 100+ year history–continuously learning and growing into the reliable, experienced business we are today. We plan to continue to lead our customers along the cutting edge of safety, education, and technology within the field of electrical services for many years to come. 

Building a Legacy

In 1919, after WWI, Americans attempted to return to normal life. The focus was turned back to the home and growing businesses. Time once again changed things, and everyone was deciding how to adapt. Harry Henderson recognized this reality, leading him to discover a business opportunity by starting Henderson Electric. This return to normal life led to a new demand for household and business utilities, one of those being electricity. This demand and Henderson’s drive to meet it, led to what would become a thriving business that still exists today. 

The legacy that Henderson built became a constant source of innovation and adaptation in an ever-changing world. However, if there is one thing that is an exception to the rule of change, it’s that even since 1919, businessmen and businesswomen have dealt with the same types of internal struggles that only a business dedicated to customer care and quality service can help to solve. That unchanging reality is what sets Henderson Services apart from every other businesses. While we have adapted our services and technology over time, our concern for the well-being of our customers has remained since day one.

At Henderson, we always like to say that our business has been keeping you in business for over 100 years.

Do you ever feel like you have so much to do and so little time to do it? Do you feel like you lack the resources necessary to get a job done well and safely? Perhaps you’re feeling anxious and overwhelmed because you aren’t sure if you know the right thing to do to solve the problem at hand?

If any of these are questions you’ve found yourself struggling with, hear us when we say you are not alone.
