About us

LEHR, also known as Lehr Auto Electric was founded in 1945.  Irv Lehr returned from the war and started a auto repair shop specializing in electric and carburetor repair.  It quickly became the experts in auto electric repair earning the nick name “take it to Lehr”.  In the late 1990’s Ken Lehr was asked to get into the emergency vehicle equipment which he did.  Suddenly Lehr was the preferred supplier of lights and sirens to cities and counties through out California.  In 2006 Jim Stommel purchased Lehr from Ken Lehr and vigously wanted to expand this well known stable business. Now Lehr has locations in Sacramento, Pittsburg, Hayward, Anahiem and Salem Oregon.
