Kenton Brothers Christmas Party 2014

This past Sunday, Kenton Brothers held our annual holiday Christmas party at Brio Tuscan Grille on the Country Club Plaza.  We had much to be thankful for from new team members and busy technicians working 10 hour days to get everyone taken care of before the new year, to our health and great happiness.

Kenton Brothers Distribution Counter will be open from 8:00 am to noon on December 24th, but will be closed for the holiday both December 25th and 26th.  If you have an emergency, call 816-888-5855 to reach the technician on call.

Please accept our warmest thanks for your business over the past year.  Without you–our customers–the doors at 1718 Baltimore Avenue would not continue to open.   We look forward to another exciting year in 2015 with new innovations and technologies continuing to emerge!

Retirement is bittersweet…

Kenton Brothers is saying goodbye to one of our longest tenured, hardest working employees–Steve Shirk.  In poling the KB Team regarding what they remember most about Steve, we heard words like “consistent” “hard-working” “intuitive” “thoughtful” “high intellect” “great sense of humor” “insightful” “ethical”…essentially, Steve is the perfect representation of KB’s core values:

Service Quality                                              Partnerships
Integrity                                                          Continuous Learning
Ethics                                                              Dependability
Innovation                                                     Customer Focus
Employee Focus                                            


We will miss him dearly, he will never be replaced.  Please enjoy this little video of Steve’s time at KB…

KB Office Olympics: the competition is ON!

Here at Kenton Brothers we are always looking for different ways to engage each other and keep our work environment unpredictable and fun.  It’s in this vein that I decided to host the ‘KB Winter Olympics’……complete with special office-friendly events and a medal ceremony for the winners!

We could all use a little more activity throughout our day, and it’s not very likely you or I have the time and money to travel to Russia to watch the games. If you’re busy grinding away at your 9-5, this will be a great way to turn your desk job into something more active and fun… as long as you’re not afraid to look a little silly.

Feel free to take my lead and institute your own office olympics–I’d love to see the results!  And stay tuned for the exciting results and photo-ops as we GO FOR THE GOLD at KB!!

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night……

Kenton Brothers wants to wish all of our customers a very Merry Christmas!  We will be open Christmas Eve until noon, and closed on Christmas Day.   Please stop by on Thursday to spend all that Christmas cash Santa left under your tree!!

What a Great way to spend a Saturday!

Another great year, another great celebratory party! Thank you to Gina for creating the kind of company culture where we actually ENJOY spending time together outside of the office……I couldn’t possibly find a better leader or a better group of people to spend my time with! Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
