25 years of “What can we do for you?”

Well, we did it. We made it to 25 years. And while we’re not surprised, we’re proud beyond belief. Proud that a company based on faith, values and commitment could not only survive, but thrive. The last quarter of a century has been 25 years of putting our customers first. 25 years of creating unique solutions. And 25 years of treating clients and employees like family. We’ve enjoyed every second of it. And we can’t wait for the next 25.

25 YEARS OF “YOU DON’T EVEN HAVE TO SCRATCH OUR BACK FOR US TO SCRATCH YOURS.”

In the last 25 years, King has taken great pride in our community—donating over $1 million to local charities. From participating and hosting monthly events to giving to those in need, we do what we can to make sure our community and those who live in it succeed.

WE’RE NOT SURE WHAT MAKES US PROUDER.
