Trust Lesche, The Original!

Walter Lesche came to the USA in 1952, penniless and unfamiliar with the English language. Lesche started his business; Walt's Welding, out of his garage in the mid 1950's. By building quality products, from the best materials available and selling them at a reasonable price the business grew quickly. Through hard work and ingenuity he built a company that has endured. In 1964, Walt moved his company to its current location and expanded the line of products. Today the company that he started is the sole manufacturer of a line of patented digging products with the registered trademarks “Lesche” and “King of Spades.”
