About Us

Hendrix-Barnhill Co., Inc. has operated throughout eastern North Carolina since 1945.

John Taylor Barnhill founded Hendrix-Barnhill Co. in 1945 as an agricultural equipment dealer. This effort led to work throughout the eastern part of the United States installing irrigation systems. Kelly Barnhill, Sr. joined the company in 1967 and served as President until November 1998 when Kelly Barnhill, Jr. became President.  This evolved into water distribution and eventually sewer collection, pumping stations, treatment plants, and in 2013 the company added Horizontal Directional Drilling to it’s capabilities with the acquisition of it’s first Directional Drill.

Hendrix-Barnhill is an active member of the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC), Carolinas Chapter; the Professional Engineers of North Carolina (PENC); and, the Greenville, NC/Pitt County Chamber of Commerce.
