McConnell Sales and Engineering Corporation
The company was started by brothers Douglass and Leslie F. McConnell in 1931. Early on, the company made cotton gin heaters to dry cotton and provided wood kilns to lumber mills. They branched out to other lumber yard equipment and later equipment for paper mills. The company evolved away from manufacturing and toward sales and custom solutions for a variety of manufacturing industries.
