Greetings. My name is BJ Lee and I am the owner of Lee Metalworks, LLC based out of Hiawatha, Kansas. Together, my wife Meredith and I, started this company to offer our community and the surrounding area a place where you can have all of your custom metal fabricating and/or repair needs met. 


I began my metal career in manufacturing and worked in a machine shop. It wasn’t long after that, I became fascinated with how one could cut, bend, and form metal into pretty much anything they wanted and then weld it together to last a lifetime. Over the last 20+ years, and over half of that living in New Hampshire, I have been fortunate enough to gain an abundance of knowledge and experience in the metal industry. I have built various components for the dust collection, food, alternative energy, and construction industries. I have also had the opportunity to build a vast array of custom projects using a variety of metals such as steel, stainless, aluminum, and bronze.  These include, but are not limited to, custom handrails and stairs for both commercial and residential, tables, benches, mailboxes, fire pits, various brackets and many more. I also have many years of experience in metal repairs such as mower decks, cast iron, aluminum cast housings, and heavy equipment. 


All in all, I am grateful for the opportunities and experiences that I have obtained over the last 20 years and hope that I can share them with you. So, if it’s a repair you need or you have a custom project in mind, dial Lee Metalworks in Hiawatha, and we’ll answer your call. 


"When we needed a railing for our front door steps, BJ was the right man for the job. He discussed our wishes and made a perfectly, custom fitted railing which not only works great, but looks beautiful! Definitely a great addition to the house."
