Brant & Cochran was the name of our Grandfather’s tool supply business which operated in Detroit, Michigan from the late 1940’s until 1976. Leland Ferguson was born in a log cabin near Albany, Kentucky in 1909 the oldest of six siblings. He left the farm for Detroit to seek his fortune at age 18. He worked at Ford Motor Company in Highland Park, Michigan before working for Fisher Body and rising to the rank of master mechanic during World War II. After World War II he and his partners began to buy military surplus machine tools to restore and sell. Leland was the silent partner in Brant & Cochran from its inception. His hard work ethic and determination rubbed off on his children and grandchildren. Many of them worked through high school or college at Brant & Cochran, another of his ventures The Detroit Metal Tube Craft Co. or in one of his friend’s light manufacturing businesses. We adopted the Brant & Cochran name as a tribute to our Grandfather, Leland Ferguson.
