The company is a custom stainless steel fabricator serving dealers across the country. In recent years, the company has diversified from their main product line of restaurant equipment fabrication by adding two laser machines which cut a variety of materials for local businesses and manufacturers.
Kemlee opened its door with four employees in a 6400 square foot building and has grown to more than 50 employees in a 40000 square foot facility. The Edies also own and operate KMI Metals and Allmetal Products Inc. in Joplin MO.
