This firm was formed in 1888 by Frank Kempsmith. They made milling machines. Early ones were marketed by Lodge & Davis.

We have found a handful of patents assigned to Kempsmith Manufacturing Company. The two catalogs we have seen to date both say "Kempsmith Machine Company".


Ad from August 1902 "Machinery".
