About Us

How It All Started


In 1996, Dennis Kernodle started with one man and one truck when he founded Kernodle Electrical Mechical Co. The name was too hard to remember so it was shortening to Kemco of Burlington. Dennis gradually converted the business from industrial to residential and commercial. Today the one man, one truck operation has grown to over 125 employees and a fleet of more than 80 service trucks, bucket trucks, and vans. We are honored to serve Alamance, Guilford, Orange, Durham, and Wake counties as well as surrounding areas of NC and fit our customers with energy-efficient and money-saving systems.

A Full-Service Company


In 2014, Kemco bought a local HVAC company that had 35 years of experience and merged to bring customers a full-service company. Dennis envisioned building a company that measures success through customer's satisfaction. Today his vision has become a reality. Kemco of Burlington, Inc. is a company customers trust to give them top-quality products and workmanship, with superior customer service.

In 2019, we purchased Outdoor Lighting and Energy, Inc. that consisted of 17 employees and 10 bucket trucks that services primarily outdoor lighting throughout NC. Visit our Outdoor Lighting Page for more information.
