Get to know LEHR: From our history, to our Mission, Vision and Core Values

Founded in 1945 by Irv Lehr after returning from WWII, LEHR Initially opened as an auto repair shop specializing in electric and carburetor repair. We quickly became the expert in auto electric repair earning the adage, “take it to LEHR”.

In the late 1990’s, LEHR entered the emergency vehicle equipment market. Overnight, LEHR became the preferred supplier of lights and sirens to numerous cities and counties throughout the United States of America.
