For over 25 years, owner Jim Kempner has worked in collaboration with architects, designers, contractors, and directly with homeowners to complete projects of highly diverse design and scope, with personalized service and constant attention to detail.

The Kempner Company provides full service beginning with a free consultation and estimate by appointment at your location, or in our shop (located only 5 minutes from downtown Chicago and only 10 minutes from the Merchandise Mart) Your plans are reviewed, or we can develop a plan for you, and detailed shop drawings are submitted for approval.

Original samples are available for material and finish selections, and custom samples will also be made for final approval to ensure that an excellent match is achieved. All measurements and details are verified at the job site, along with any coordination with other contractors if required, so that there is a full understanding of the entire project, and any potential problems are solved.

All work is fabricated and finished in our shop, delivered, and then installed by our own team of highly skilled craftsmen, some of whom have been here for over 20 years.

Every project, large or small, receives personal attention through the whole process with a "whatever it takes" approach, and we are always there to follow up and "go the extra mile". We understand that not only the owner should be happy, but also anyone else involved whether it is the architect or designer, the general contractor, or other trades people. Your satisfaction with a job well done is very rewarding to us!

I hope you will call me directly to discuss your next project, and would be glad to visit you at your home or office, and if you have the time to visit our shop to see work in progress, view samples, or tour a completed project in one of the finer homes or businesses in the Chicago and suburban area, it would be my pleasure to meet with you.
