About Us

Machinist uses 30 plus years of experience to choose the right tooling for the job.

Leese & Company History:

In 1953, John H. Leese, an established machinist, decided to take a risk. He elected to take the entrepreneurial path and established his own business. John Leese soon partnered with Robert Orris to form Leese & Orris Machine. The partnership endured for several years until both elected to split into two separate entities. Robert formed Orris Machine and John founded Leese & Company Inc. Both operated successful businesses for many years to come. The Leese legacy continued to thrive after John’s retirement with J. Barry Leese being named as President. Barry guided Leese & Company through many expansions and several acquisitions.
