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.
