Industry Leaders


Lincoln Contractors Supply, Inc., was founded in 1956 by Al Knief and Bill Guenther in West Allis, just outside Milwaukee, WI. Our first store was just a few blocks down Lincoln Ave. Today our current corporate headquarters still resides on W Hayes Ave.

In the early 1980s, Knief and Guenther’s sons, Norm Knief and Dale Guenther, purchased the company. From its inception, LCS has expanded to become a leader in construction equipment and product sales and rentals in Wisconsin.

In 2001, LCS entered an industry alliance with FABICK Rents, which resulted in the company’s greatest increase in construction equipment sales and rentals and overall reach in Wisconsin. The new alliance expanded the LCS presence to eleven locations statewide, from Racine to northern Wisconsin in Eau Claire.

Today, LCS is under its third-generation President after Norm’s son, Aaron Knief, took over in 2015. Aaron and the team at LCS continue to lead the industry and look for innovations in providing sales, rentals, and service support for the best construction products and equipment in Wisconsin.
