Otto Culyer, President
The Cuyler family business, specializing in food processing machinery, was founded in 1942 by Otto Cuyler's father and grandmother in Webster, New York. As a teen, Otto started out as a mechanic, helping recondition equipment for resale. He then began traveling with his father on buying inspections, auctions and appraisals for regional banks. Upon his father’s passing in 1979, Otto took over the business. (Click here for more on the auspicious Cuyler family history.)
