We at Kemplon Engineering are pleased to announce that this April marks our ten-year anniversary as a provider of marine engineering and custom metal fabrication services in Florida. Founded in 2005 and over the years going from strength to strength, our company looks at every project and every satisfied client as a building block towards creating a legacy we can be truly proud of.
On Time and On Budget – Every Time
In 2005, co-founders Colette O’Hanlon and Jeff Kemp decided to channel their expertise as department managers onboard private yachts to a new and exciting enterprise. They had spent plenty of time in shipyards during refit periods, and came to the conclusion that the marine industry presented growth opportunities for contractors who could provide more timely, cost-efficient and a more customer service-based approach to refit and repair work. Kemplon Engineering was thus born, bearing the core philosophy of “On Time and On Budget – Every Time.”
Kemplon by the Numbers
A Growing Team. The driving force behind Kemplon Engineering’s success is a great team, powered by a Can-Do attitude and a focus on top-of-the-line customer service. Our dedication to pleasing our clients is the heart and soul of our business. It is what has allowed us to grow from a 2-person team to 32, with a management team having 80 years of combined maritime experience. Our drive is also what helps us to continue growing, as we are always actively on the lookout for talent.
An Expansive Service Line. Our commitment to meeting all the needs of our clients drove us from initially offering just marine engineering, to expanding our service range to include industrial clients for activities such as certified welding, precision machining, pipe fitting and fabrication.
An Impressive Facility. And from our humble roots at a mobile location followed by a 1,000-sq. ft. brick and mortar site, we now call our whopping 10,000-sq.ft. headquarters home, with our technicians being dispatched all over the United States.
Satisfied Clients. Our greatest achievement, however, is our ability to obtain and retain amazing clients over the years. We have had the honor of providing personalized services to large organizations such as Bombardier Transportation and Bollinger Shipyards.
Looking to the Future
For our ten-year anniversary, we are celebrating our past achievements with a company luncheon, and special gifts for the members of Team Kemplon who have been so pivotal to our success. Among them is Mr. Jeff Thomas, whom we are honoring as our longest-standing team member, having shared with us six stellar years of service.
Our ten-year milestone, however, isn’t just about celebrating the past. It is also a great opportunity to look to our future. In the coming years, Kemplon Engineering will be aggressively pursuing a vision plan which includes more growth targets for new contract clients, and more equipment and service offerings.
The past ten years have been wonderful to Kemplon Engineering, and we would like to thank our Florida community; our valued team members for their dedication; and our clients for their trust and patronage. May the next ten years, and all the decades after that, be as productive and rewarding for all of us.
