Our Foundation

In 1968, Ken Campbell founded Campbell, Inc. as a simple plumbing business. His original focus was to bid “plan & spec” work. As the company grew, he added diverse mechanical HVAC disciplines and eventually, a dedicated Service Department was added in 1987, headed by Keith Campbell, Ken’s son. Committed to upholding the highest industry standards, Campbell, Inc. teamed with Linc Corporation in 1982, setting them apart from their competitors as only one in 100 contractors achieve Linc Service™ status.

Keith Campbell was named President/CEO in 1992 and saw an opportunity grow Campbell, Inc. Customer service and satisfaction became the foundation for all interactions, and long-term agreement partnerships with customers were initiated for preventative maintenance. This new focus drove Campbell, Inc. to become one of the area’s largest mechanical services contractors.
