Central Heating Installer.
Kemkens was founded in 1857. Initially, however, the business operations were somewhat different than today. For example, in 1919 a patent was obtained for a potato harvesting machine and in 1922 they even sold bicycles with free driving lessons! In 1952 a new fully electrically driven forge is opened. Around the 1960s we gained momentum with the mega order connecting a large part of the Maaskant to the water supply network. We increasingly focused on installation technology and services related to energy and water.
In 1978 Kemkens started the gas service department. Due to the continuous growth, our office became too small and in 1982 a location of 5,500 m 2 in Oss with offices, showroom and warehouse was moved into. In 1992 Kemkens started to focus more and more on thecentral heating installation work and the sale and rental of central heating boilers including maintenance and a year later Kemkens is the 1st in the Netherlands to be certified as a "Guarantee service company".
Since 2002 they have emphasized customer service by effectively organizing and supporting the entire company structure with the most modern ICT tools. This allows us to serve our customers even better, we have all the information and history of your central heating boiler and we can ensure that maintenance takes place regularly and a malfunction is solved as quickly as possible.
Kemkens continues to grow. There have been a number of acquisitions since 2008, such as the acquisition of Energie Service Zuid-Gelderland, Q-Energy in Eindhoven and Delta Gasservice in Zeeland. Sun & Wind Energy (Schaijk), P. Jansen Installatietechniek (Bergen op Zoom), De Werkendamse Heating Industry and De Werkendamse Heating Central (Werkendam) have been part of Kemkens since 2019 and 2020. We now have 6 branches, more than 600,000 satisfied customers and more than 460,000 devices under management.
