Paul Neuenschwander founded Kidron Electric in 1938 as an electric wiring business. With his motto of “Friendly Service” and a single vehicle, he wired houses and barns when electricity was relatively new in the community. Shortly thereafter, Paul’s brother Til (Tilman) Neuenschwander joined the small company where he helped grow and expand the business. In 1948, they formed the Kidron Electric Company.
As the company grew, six departments emerged to serve a rapidly growing community: Appliance Sales, Electrical, Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning, Farm, and Service. Paul’s sons Art and Ken joined the company, and along with as many as 60 employees at any one time, navigated the company to continued growth and success.
Today, the company focuses on seven key areas: HVAC, Electrical Contracting, Commercial Plumbing, Commercial Refrigeration, Service, Generators and Backup Power, and Temperature Control. Likewise, Art, Ken, and their leadership team continue to focus on positioning the company for future growth while embracing technological advancements, new market opportunities, and how to better serve every customer.
Though much has changed since 1938, Kidron Electric is still known for “friendly service.” But more importantly, the company continues to build on it's solid reputation of customer satisfaction, exceptional system design & installation, and partnering with the finest manufacturers of quality HVAC, electrical, plumbing, and related products.
