Providing Intelligent Lighting Solutions for Challenging Environments
Founded in 1963 by Ken Hawkins, Kenall Manufacturing carved a niche within the industry by creating the first impact- and vandal-resistant lighting products. The company’s second-generation CEO & Chairman, Jim Hawkins, expanded the company’s vision to include sealed LED lighting for containment or clean spaces; high abuse lighting for public access areas; correctional, healthcare and transportation lighting; with the exciting additions of Indigo-Clean visible light disinfection and TekLink lighting controls. In December of 2018, Kenall joined Legrand North and Central America (LCNA); an innovative leader in power, light and data technologies, and a global specialist in electrical and digital building infrastructures.
With the acquisition of Kenall, Legrand expands its ability to bring innovative, intelligent, and solution-oriented products to new market segments. Together, Legrand and Kenall are positioned to create and support a broader range of lighting and controls solutions to meet their customers’—agents, partners, specifiers, and contractors—ever-changing demands. Their unique solutions, combined with LNCA’s other lighting entities and business lines, will enable the company to deliver more innovative, tailored products, combined with the best customer service in the industry.
Headquartered in Kenosha, Wisconsin, Kenall’s manufacturing facility is vertically integrated with fabrication and finishing departments and a certified UL Test Lab. A full circuit board design, testing, and assembly facility is also located within the complex. Kenall owns the proprietary tooling and patents related to our innovative designs. We have achieved a leadership position within the industry by conducting business with honesty, integrity, and fairness, while respecting and satisfying the interests and needs of our esteemed customers and associates.
