Mission Control – Lee Company University

September 30, 2016


It’s one thing to have a mission – most companies have mission statements printed on their websites and posted on their walls.

However, it’s something else to bring those words to life, every day.

At Lee Company, our mission is to create a workplace where our employees can thrive and to be committed in finding innovative and original solutions thoughtfully and reliably, to meet the specific needs of every customer.

Lee Company University

Our industry-lauded Lee Company University (LCU) helps us walk the talk. At LCU, Lee Company employees learn new skills and expand their career possibilities. At the same time, they gain the knowledge needed to develop innovative and original solutions for customers.

Having just completed orientation for new LCU students, we’re delighted to have set a record for students from our regional offices! Out of a total of 230 students, 45 are from the regional offices – including Lee Company facilities in (Madison, North Alabama; Baxter, New Johnsonville, Memphis, Tennessee; Bowling Green, Kentucky). We also have a record number of instructors this year: 26.  Classes offered this year are; HVAC 1 -4, plumbing 1-4, electrical 1-4, welding 1-3, pipe fitting 1, project management.

We Hit the Mark

September 14, 2016

Together, we did it! With our wonderful title sponsors and supporters, Lee Company raised more than $20,000 at the recent Justice Shoot – the August clay shoot, held to benefit Justice Mercy International (JMI).

The money raised helps JMI provide essential assistance to children in Moldova, a former Soviet republic in Eastern Europe.

“The Justice Shoot that Lee Company puts together every year to benefit JMI is one of our favorite days of the year,” says Mary Katharine Hunt, JMI Executive Director. “It’s a great day of fun and team-building that also raises significant money to help protect vulnerable children from trafficking in the country of Moldova. Thank you, Lee Company, for making justice personal!”

Helping children in Moldova illustrates our belief that community is not defined by geography; our community goes far beyond county and state lines. We are blessed to be able to support this organization. And we couldn’t do it without you! Thanks to everyone involved.

Our special thanks and gratitude to the 2016 Justice Shoot title sponsors: Care Supply; Ed’s Supply; Ferguson; J. Smith Lanier; Kenny Pipe & Supply; Layton Construction; Mechanical Resource Group; Pinnacle Financial Partners; Solomon Builders; Sunbelt Rentals; Trane; and Trillium Construction.
