Who We Are

Adrian DeKorte and Frank Westerhof had a vision to start a small machine shop to service local farmers. The small machine shop soon expanded to include welding as well as millwrighting. Frank’s son, John, started working summers and after school for the shop.

John developed a passion for developing innovative solutions to problems that his customers came to him with.In 1984, John purchased Adrian’s share of the business and partnered with his father. Kente then expanded to include portable welding and fabrication of custom farm equipment.

Beyond our core services, Kente Enterprises takes pride in fostering community engagement through cultural initiatives and sustainable practices. We operate a state-of-the-art eco-friendly manufacturing facility, reflecting our commitment to environmental stewardship and responsible business practices.

Driven by a passion for innovation and a deep-rooted connection to the local community, Kente Enterprises continues to be a trusted partner for projects large and small. Our mission is to create lasting impact through the seamless integration of tradition, innovation, and sustainability, solidifying our position as a leader in the industry and a catalyst for positive change in Hillier and beyond.
