About National Standby Repair

Keeping Homes & Businesses Out of the Dark Since 1981

Over the past four decades, National Standby Repair has created a strong reputation for top-notch service and repairs.


National Standby Repair was established in 1981 by Ken Thompson after many years of working for large generator distributors. The company continues to be a family-owned business. In 2009, Ken’s nephew, Kris Schwind, took over as National Standby’s CEO and Owner.

Since taking over the family business from his uncle, the company has more than tripled their number of technicians under Kris and now features a fully staffed support team.

Our professional team of certified technicians and reliable customer service specialists are proud to provide premier service around the clock for homes and businesses.

From single-family homes to corporate towers and medical facilities, we offer professional standby generator sales, rentals, service, and installations to meet all of your residential and commercial power needs.

Keeping your lights on is what we do best.
