Alex Lee was named in honor of its founders, Alex and Lee George. Alex and Lee were generous people who cared about both friends and strangers. Alex George, the entrepreneur, knew everyone's name and directed the warehouse operations. Lee George, the negotiator, was adept at procurement and sales, but was best known for his kindness. Their integrity, honesty, fairness and loyalty earned them wide trust and great respect among both customers and employees. Alex and Lee believed in customer service and guided the company through good and bad times by focusing on how they could best serve the customer.

The tradition begun by Alex and Lee George continues today at all the operating companies: Consolidation Services, MDI, Lowes Foods, and IFH. Each of the Alex Lee companies has grown tremendously over the years by remaining committed to doing what's right for the customer. Today's team of employees at Alex Lee, Inc. take great pride in creating services that make life easier for our customers and distinguish us from our competitors.
