McKee came to Cleveland in 1901 to work at the American Steel & Wire Co., becoming district engineer by 1905. That year he left and founded his own consulting engineering firm, and in 1906 electrical engineer, Robert E. Baker, and construction engineer, Donald Herr, joined as partners in the firm. McKee developed blastfurnace specialties, including the revolving distributor, stock bins, and test rods and held many patents in the field. The Blast Furnace Appliance Co. was organized to hold the patents and license their use in the iron and steel industry. The Arthur G. McKee Co., which incorporated in 1915, expanded and gained a reputation for sound engineering. McKee himself became one of the top engineers in the country.
