In 1974 Lee Brumit, a talented machinist, was producing precision manufacturing designs created by NASA scientists at the University of Texas at Dallas, and thus KARLEE was born.

KARLEE grew into a multi-million dollar corporation, and in 2000 they received the prestigious Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award presented by the President of the United States. During that same year, KARLEE achieved revenues of 80 million and employed over 500 team members.

KARLEE persevered and remained steadfast in their commitment to performance excellence and Christian ethics and values, while many other organizations succumbed to the “dotcom” crash of the early 2000’s.

Today, thanks to those processes and values, KARLEE, A Porter’s Group Company, has regained their position as an industry leader and is now experiencing robust growth. Their recent expansion into new regions and markets has helped continue to set them apart from the competition and assures future growth to come.
