About Hartson-Kennedy

Established in 1948 by Leo Hartson and his son-in-law, William Kennedy, Hartson-Kennedy Cabinet Top Co., Inc. is one of the largest manufacturers of postformed laminate countertops in the United States. From the beginning, they realized quality and first-class service at a fair price was a recipe for customer satisfaction.

Their continued insistence on maintaining the highest standards of quality and service has been continued by sons, Mike and Chris Kennedy, Chris’s daughter and son-in-law, Kristen and Javier De Uriarte, and the dedicated team who make up the H-K family. This heritage has been maintained for over 70 years providing quality countertops to homes and businesses across America.
Our production facilities, combined with dedicated staff, enable us to produce postformed countertops that are unmatched in the industry. Located in Marion, Indiana; Gulfport, Mississippi; and Macon, Georgia, our three manufacturing plants are equipped with computer-controlled manufacturing technology to assure high quality and compliance with consistent dimensional standards.

Hartson-Kennedy is committed to LEAN manufacturing principles both in our production processes and our corporate departments. In this way, our team members focus their efforts into adding value for our customers by maintaining and improving quality standards, minimizing waste, developing our people, and utilizing their ideas to the fullest.

In addition to producing blank countertops, we also fabricate custom countertops at all H-K locations. This puts us in a unique position, as we understand our customer’s business in a very tangible way. We seek to partner with our customers and provide solutions based on our own experience. This partnership extends to help customers increase sales in their markets through blank and custom programs and support them with their fabrication processes.

Our Mission: Hartson-Kennedy strives to provide the highest quality products and services to our customers at competitive prices, support, motivate, and reward our employees, and encourage the personal and spiritual growth of all those associated with our company.

Our Vision: To become our customer’s favorite supplier.
