M B McKee Company began operations on May 1st 1943. It was started by M B “Mac” McKee who had been a successful salesman for Clowe & Cowan. The company opened in a small storefront with his wife Ione doing the billing.
He started by making alliances with local machine shops and fabricators to create the products that were hard to find during this era. He soon became known as the “GO TO Guy” to source hard to get items during WW II.
From the beginning the company was built on the foundation of Service and Solutions. The company grew from this small beginning to several employees and two locations, and gained the reputation as a place that has what you want “In Stock”.
M B then partnered with Jack Brown to form Brown-McKee Engineering Company which still independently operates today. MB’s son, Macky, moved from his position in sales to become President in the early 80’s and grew the company to three locations. The oil crisis then led to a consolidation of the three locations and a return to a single site in Lubbock.
In 2001, Macky’s daughter Cindy became President, and his son Mark became Vice President of Operations, while Cindy’s husband Kirk Cole became Vice President of Sales. This team has guided the company through a steady growth and over the period increased business tenfold.
Recently the company opened a store in Hereford (2010) that is bringing new customers and service levels to that area of Texas and parts of Oklahoma and Kansas.
The company under this leadership continues to maintain the Vision of it’s founders, “Great Service, Large Inventory, and in-house Design” As Cindy says, “We Want To Be your” SINGLE – SOURCE – SOLUTION” for products and services.
