MISSION & VALUES
Committed to a Culture of Family
Kerns Brothers Company was established in 1933 in Granite Quarry, North Carolina. In 1941, brothers Clyde and Jim Kerns relocated to Kings Mountain, North Carolina, beginning a long and prosperous relationship that continues with the community today. In 1970 the Kerns Brothers retired, leaving the business in the capable hands of Johnny Kerns, who reincorporated the business to Kerns Trucking, Inc. Johnny continued to build upon the foundational commitment of hard work and great people. 1974 began the involvement of the third generation with the entry of Butch Kerns into Kerns daily operations. Ten years later, Clyde Kerns joined the company securing the slogan “Powered by Three Generations”. In 2010, Alyson Kerns Gray joined the family business with her brother, Clay Kerns, joining in 2015.
Kerns' corporate headquarters are located in Grover, North Carolina and have continued to expand with offices in Kannapolis, North Carolina and Pacolet, South Carolina. Our success falls squarely upon the shoulders of our many capable employees and is perhaps best described in our mission statement:
"Listen to the customer, understand their needs, and act upon their request to provide prompt, courteous and cost effective service. The result of this will be a satisfied customer and our opportunity to promote community and personal growth for today and the coming years."
