As the company grew, he added diverse mechanical 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.
