History 1952 - 2017

A. J. Kerr Sr. (Art) founded Kerr Engineered Sales Company in 1952 after a twenty eight year career in sales and marketing to the oil, gas and water industries including Vice President of Sales for Rockwell Manufacturing Company. He uncovered a need for technical sales and solutions for manufacturers expanding to the northeast. Art and son Jack (A.J. Kerr, Jr.) formed the company to meet this need initially for two manufacturers, T. D. Williamson, Inc. and Peerless Mfg. Co. who continue to partner with Kerr 65 years later.


David and Thomas, Jack’s sons have been running the company since 1997. Together with the team of application specialists and inside sales, they continue the tradition of high touch service and technical expertise while adapting to the constant changes in the industries.
