Mershon Enterprises was founded February 2015, but has roots that tie back to summer of 2003. Kevin Mershon, a Bakersfield native, started his career as a software developmer at Krummrich Engineering in the Metro Centre off Truxton Ave. at the age of 18. Over the course of the next ten years, Kevin learned the ins and outs of the petroleum, shipping, finance, and automation industries, trained over a dozen developers as apprentices, and designed and maintained at least as many software systems.
Today, Mershon Enterprises is a "Platform as a Service" company, facilitated chiefly through our flagship application "Patchwork". While we do still provide ongoing support and generalized custom software development to established clients local and afar, we do not offer mobile app development services, and do not cater to new startups at this time.
