Company History

Kennewick Industrial & Electrical Supply was founded in 1955 by Augustan Kittson Sr., in downtown Kennewick, Washington, as a distributor of electrical equipment. Following the success of the company due to their dependable customer service and honest business practices, Gus rapidly branched into other areas of industrial wholesale distribution including plumbing and irrigation, and began opening several new store locations.

Today, the company is owned and operated by the founder's son, Augustan (Gus) Kittson Jr., who continues to run the company based upon the original values of which it was founded: ethical business standards, superb customer service, a family-oriented work environment, and integrity and honesty in everything that we do.

Our Mission

Through our commitment to exceptional customer support, KIE Supply is driven to helping our customer's succeed in all of their irrigation, plumbing, electrical, and lighting projects. We are a family-oriented company who operates under honest business practices, and strives to provide what our customers need, when they need it.

Our Logo

The KIE Supply logo (shown here) was first developed in the 1970s as a means to display each of the five product categories carried by our stores. Little has changed in the logo aside from a few minor aesthetic updates, and a change from a sun (symbolizing HVAC) to a fan.

The KIE Supply logo is comprised of the following badges:

  • Electrical Plug

  • Plumbing Faucet

  • Ceiling Fan

  • Decorative Light Fixtures

  • Irrigation Sprinkler Head
