Industries We Support
FOR OVER 50 YEARS WH KEMP HAS BEEN WORKING WITH MANY OF THE MOST PRESTIGIOUS ENGINEERING MANUFACTURING BUSINESSES IN THE UK.
OUR INDUSTRY EXPERIENCE INCLUDES:
WH Kemp has several high-profile customers in the automotive industry including the UK’s largest bus and coach companies, the UK’s leading manufacturer of specialist towing vehicles and organisations which build security vehicles, road sweepers and vehicle LED lighting.
In order to meet our clients’ needs we have a dedicated automotive production cell within our 25,000 sq. ft. factory.
This allows us the freedom to manufacture large-scale cable looms and wiring harnesses and to develop and assemble control boxes for large utility vehicles. If required we can also support cable harness design and offer advice on water ingress, vibration resistance and security.
With the UK government pledging to phase out coal-fired power by 2025, and solar and wind power expected to generate more than one third of global electricity by 2040, green energy is at the top of many business’ agendas.
WH Kemp has also been playing its part in this green energy revolution.
In developing cable harnesses and sub-assemble WH Kemp has been collaborating with manufacturers within the wind turbine sector manufacturing chokes, magnetic materials and inverters to ensure a smooth and quality supply to the end producer of wind turbines.
WH Kemp undertakes ongoing work within the defence sector, both for UK and overseas military projects.
WH Kemp has worked with the Ministry of Defence regularly for the past 50 years, providing cable harnesses and control boxes which are effective and dependable in hostile and rugged conditions.
Although most of the MOD projects are confidential, we have been a main supplier of wiring looms and panels for use on the front-line as well as in an engineering support capacity for the Royal Navy, British Army and the SAS.
As with all our harnesses they comply with customer specification, both UK and overseas, and legal regulations ensuring perfect fit and function to deliver nothing short of top-level performance.
When WH Kemp was established in 1967, it was primarily to manufacture sub-assemblies and cable harnesses for a company within the oil and gas sector, a company that is now a FTSE 100 global giant. They still remain one of our loyal customers. WH Kemp now serve several similar original equipment manufacturers within the petrochemical sector.
With over 50 years’ experience manufacturing cable harnesses for the petrochemical sector WH Kemp has an ingrained quality discipline and an expertise that makes us stand head and shoulders above the rest in the cable assembly industry.
Additionally, our extensive experience enables us to aid with design and supplying potted assemblies for machines and instruments which are utilised in highly challenging environments such as oil refineries, gas rigs and sub-zero temperatures.
We pride ourselves here at WH Kemp with having several high-tech machine manufacturers amongst our client base.
Such manufacturers work to a fast turnaround and we are proud that we achieve over 99.9% right first time and over 98% delivery on time.
Our customers include the UK’s leading food sorting machine manufacturer, the UK’s leading vending machine company and manufacturers of industrial boilers. We also supply wire harnesses for printing machines, security equipment, building controls and gas detection machines.
We aim to meet all our customer expectations, and typically supply our wire looms in kit form, packed according to customers’ instructions. We can produce cable looms to any specification no matter how complex.
Here at WH Kemp we have worked for decades within the aerospace sector from ground- based projects all the way through to airborne functionality.
These projects have included building complex control systems for the movement of helicopters on-board naval vessels, as well as building cable assemblies to aid with testing of military aircraft.
Additionally, we have produced cable harnesses for aircraft power generators, on-board equipment and aircraft towing equipment.
Our experience and expertise make us a leading partner in this fast-developing industry.
N.B. Should customers require full certification of AS9100 Rev D our processes are in full alignment with the requirements. We are therefore able to adopt full certification if necessary.
