Lee Shuknecht & Sons, Inc. is located in the heart of agricultural country in Western New York State, and was founded in 1974 by Joan & Lee Shuknecht. Lee grew up on a local family owned dairy farm in Elba, NY. After high school he worked for a local equipment dealer and then an Industrial Equipment manufacturer. While working for a local repair shop farmers expressed the need for better onion harvesting equipment, and Lee decided to start his own fabrication and repair business that would work closely with local onion growers. Lee designed and built a self-propelled onion harvester and since then the company has grown and the equipment has evolved. In the late 80’s the business moved to a new and larger location which includes a farm parts store and full machine shop. Lee and Joan’s son Marc, and daughter Wendy, currently run the business and are looking to the third generation, including grandchildren Oliver and Tarra, to continue in Lee’s footsteps.
