Patrick P. Lee
An inventor and engineer early in his career, Patrick P. Lee used his business savvy and leadership skills to found Enidine Incorporated, one of the world’s premier manufacturers of shock absorption and vibration isolation products located in Buffalo, New York. As Enidine prospered, other companies with synergistic product lines were acquired and eventually a holding company, International Motion Control (IMC) was formed. For over 40 years, IMC continued to grow into a worldwide conglomerate with manufacturing facilities located in the United States, Germany, United Kingdom, Japan, Korea and China and with a network of over 300 independent distributors.
Lee formed The Patrick P. Lee Foundation in 2005 as a broad-based charitable organization dedicated to promoting awareness through education and research. Based on strong philanthropic values and a passion for community outreach, the Foundation seeks to align itself with those organizations that share the same passion. In addition to his generous philanthropic support of the Buffalo and South Florida communities, Lee gives generously of his time serving on the boards of Roswell Park Cancer Institute, Canisius College and the Ocean Reef Medical Center.
In 2013, the Hoartio Alger Association of Distinguished Americans awarded Lee the prestigious Horatio Alger Award. The Award is given to individuals who demonstrate personal initiative and perseverance, leadership and commitment to excellence, belief in the free-enterprise system and the importance of higher education, community service, and the vision and determination to achieve a better future.
