Larry Kuehn

Founder & CEO

Larry Kuehn

Larry Kuehn began his career at John Deere in 1977 and completed a 4 year apprenticeship as a Computer Numeric Control (CNC) machinist. In 1983, he won a position at Hughes Helicopter in the Quality Control (QC) department and moved to Northrop in 1985. He learned surface plate inspection and quickly began to use and program coordinate measuring machines (CMMs). In 1986 he began working for Southern California Edison in the electrical power generation industry. With a progressive outlook, Larry learned to use several computer aided design (CAD) programs, including CATIA. In order to streamline reporting and shore up weak areas with the CMM software he was using, he ventured out to recruit engineers and technicians, developing aftermarket software to support CATIA and CMM inspection software. Larry eventually marketed it to the aerospace and other industries. He won the trust of several key aerospace customers and launched LK Consulting part-time in 2008.

After 38 years of performing inspection services and selling inspection hardware and software for other companies, Larry decided it was the right time to make LK Consulting Inc. inspection services a full-time business in 2022.
