We used to make things in this country. #254: Kuchyt Metal Works, Fort Erie, Ontario


The Kuchyt Metal Works was located in Fort Erie, just across the Niagara River from Buffalo, New York.  The earliest reference I can find is from a 1963 government document that puts them on Petit Road.   There's very little information on the firm, other than that they specialized in front-end loaders in the 1960's, offering just three models.  Gone now, and a puzzle for owners of these implements.  There's no longer even a Petit Road shown on Google Maps for that city.  Eastern Farm Machinery Limited is still a going concern, however.

Kuchyt Metal Works (KMW) bought out Ark Manufactoring in Sterling Kansas. then Alo Maskiner from Umea Sweden bought out KMW. Later The Bender family in Sterling Kansas bought back rights to KMW. Now the K stands for Kansas Metal Work. The company is still in business and doing well. Selling loader for Agco,JD,Buhler, CASEIH, McCormick,New Holland and more
