Who We Are
Kelley is grounded in lessons we’ve learned from more than 75 years serving industrial, agricultural, commercial, cotton gins, motor testing and control panel businesses. From quality work to unparalleled safety, we always deliver.
From our founding in 1945 to all the exciting projects we have lined up for the future, we’ve learned how to exceed expectations and set new standards across the industries we work in.
Kelley Electric — which originally started as a utility company working on 4kV to 69kV projects — is founded in Kennett, Missouri.
Controls engineering and panel building is introduced to optimize our clients’ electrical and mechanical needs.
Kelley Electric is acquired by The Townsend Corporation (now The Townsend Company, LLC).
We begin implementing process automation.

Our reputation as a trusted partner is no accident. We earned it by adhering to the highest ethical standards while bringing a work ethic we can stand by to every project.

Serving our clients' needs safely, efficiently and dependably is the cornerstone of our reputation. We are committed to reliability, responsiveness and customer-centered solutions.
