whkemp 50 year logoThe origins of Cable Assembly manufacturing at WH Kemp date back 50 years, when in 1967 West Country entrepreneur Wilfred H Kemp founded the family-run business in the city of Bath.

At the time WH Kemp’s raison d’être was supplying electrical Cable Harnesses to just three companies. Two of these founder customers are now FTSE-listed, global, engineering giants and to this day remain loyal customers of WH Kemp.

With the advent of the 1970s, WH Kemp’s reputation for manufacturing reliable, high quality Wiring Looms and Cable Harnesses was capturing sector attention. Industrial engineering and electrical customers - large and small - were soon beating a path to WH Kemp’s door, eager to outsource their specialist Cable Assembly requirements.

With a rapidly growing customer base in tow, WH Kemp re-located to larger premises in nearby Bradford On Avon. Throughout the 80s and 90s further success followed, forcing another move; this time to purpose-built premises in order to accommodate the burgeoning workforce of top class Cable Assembly technicians and the company’s state-of-the-art manufacturing equipment.

For the past 15 years our HQ has been a modern 25,000 sq ft factory site in Westbury West Wiltshire, where we continue to manufacture and provide Cable Harnesses, Wire Looms and Panel & Box Builds for several world-class engineering customers.

That said we welcome enquiries regarding Cable Harness and Wiring Loom projects from relatively small companies, who can benefit from a carefully considered Cable Assembly infrastructure shaped over 50 years, in order to meet the complex and most challenging expectations of our global customer base.

Wilfred H Kemp and his descendents may have long retired from WH Kemp; however our founder’s ethos of offering customers a transparent, friendly, ‘family feel’ service via consensus-led management, has been maintained by today’s owner John Wyatt and his team. Wilfred Kemp’s customer-centric legacy lives on.
