Benny Lee’s Serial Success
Very few entrepreneurs have a résumé as eclectic—or as profitable—as Benny Lee’s.
One of Kansas City’s most productive entrepreneurs, Lee first found success with portable sewing machines, Ginsu knives, fabric steamers and pasta makers.
Lee’s most recent company, DuraComm Corp., manufactures and distributes a popular line of AC-to-DC switching power supplies that are used in communications towers. He recently added LED lighting and solar power products divisions. In 2012, DuraComm’s annual revenues totaled about $6.5 million, a 600 percent increase in 48 months.
Lee’s success is getting attention: Earlier this year, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce recognized DuraComm as one of the country’s top 100 small businesses of 2013.
