Kelly Baker Henderson
President | Owner


Kelly has the construction industry flowing in her bloodline.  With years of observing her family’s business and then her own personal involvement in that business, she decided it was time to begin her own legacy.  Teaming with her husband whose specialty is in industrial painting, blasting & coating, she founded C3 Industrial.  Kelly’s desire for her small, woman-owned business is for it to become recognized across the nation as a company that strives for excellence.

 Chip Henderson

Chip acquired diverse blasting and coating experience across a variety of project types including:  military wharfs, power houses, coal fire plants, locks, dams, and bridges.  He decided it was time to launch his own business.  “I’m committed to providing the highest quality workmanship and service; and I proudly stand behind every job.”
