HAMLET & SMITH
Bringing New Energy To Our Historical Core Values.
Hamlet & Smith Inc. was founded by Mr. Leon Hamlet back in 1939. Leon moved the company from Minneapolis, MN to Milwaukee, WI to take advantage of the heavy manufacturing base both in the Milwaukee area as well as most of Wisconsin. Roy Smith joined the company as a partner in 1942. That team worked together with other minor partners and then in 1967 they hired Michael Pierce from Minneapolis, MN. As Leon and Roy came closer to retirement, they asked Mr. Pierce to relocate to Milwaukee and become President of Hamlet and Smith Inc. Eventually in the 70's early 80's Mr. Pierce became the major stock holder of Hamlet and Smith until 2005. At that time, long time employee of 20 years Kris Holm bought the company. To present date Kris Holm is sole owner of Hamlet & Smith Inc., which has evolved in a family run business with his wife Debbie, daughter Jessica and son Andrew among other long time employees. In doing so is paving the way for the next generation of Hamlet & Smith.
