About

About Alex Lee, Inc.

From humble beginnings, the founders, Alex and Lee George, started Merchants Produce Company in 1931.  The business now includes Merchants Distributors LLC and Lowes Foods LLC.  The growth of the company has always been built on the foundational values established by the founders.

The long history and proud heritage of Alex Lee does not tie the company to the past.  Instead the entrepreneurial spirit that made the company successful in the beginning is alive and well today.  We know that we must constantly reinvent ourselves and the way that we do business to stay relevant to our customers.  This means that we seek new opportunities and foster innovation; we work to grow our business so that we can offer our employees opportunity for growth; and we strive to continually improve, reaching for excellence.
