Nearly 45 years after KEC Company was founded in the 1950’s, its owner at the
time, Keith E. Card, decided to retire and made the decision to sell all of the
Company’s property and assets to his key employees who had given more than
20 years of service. It was in 1995 when KEC Engineering became an
employee-owned company and this ownership structure remains in place today.
Providing the leadership foundation for KEC are it’s Owners, James Elfring
(President), Scott Pfeiffer (Vice President – Operations) and Les Card (Vice
President – Estimating). The day-to-day operations of the company are handled
equally by the trio, each person with his own area of responsibility.
Most of our projects are done for public works entities in the areas of highway
and bridge construction, large storm drains and underground shoring. KEC has completed projects for CALTRANS and several private companies including
home builders and real estate developers. KEC also performs on-going
emergency sewer and storm drain repairs for the City of Los Angeles.
KEC Engineering is a union contractor working exclusively in Southern California.
Our base of operations is located in Corona, CA near the 91 and 15 freeways.
KEC’s success is attributed to the expertise of our field personnel, some of whom
are third generation company employees. In addition, all of the company’s
supervisors have been employed with KEC for more than 20 years.
The employee-oriented atmosphere of the company is also reflected in a better
relationship with our customers due to the fact that employees work in a
comfortable environment and are eager to bring forth the best of the company to
please our customers. This company-wide attitude has helped us continually
build upon KEC’s half-century of business and will be a major factor in propelling
the company toward continued success.
