Lee Company and Second Harvest “Spread the Love”

Fans asked to bring jars of Peanut Butter

MT Athletics – Lee Company and Second Harvest teaming up to “Spread the Love”

Fans are being asked to help ‘Spread The Love’ at select upcoming men’s and women’s basketball games.

Lee Company and MTSU food drive

Lee Company, in conjunction with Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee, will be holding peanut butter drives at the women’s basketball game on Saturday, February 4th against UTEP and at the men’s game on Thursday, February 9th against Old Dominion.
Jars of peanut butter are being requested and Lee Company staff members will be onsite at the Murphy Center to help collect donations and thank fans with a limited number of rally towels.

“Lee Company has had a partnership with Second Harvest for many years. With so many of our employees and customers living in the Murfreesboro area and supporting MTSU sports, this collaboration with the program just made sense,” says Gerry Vance, Lee Company Executive Vice President.

In addition to peanut butter, $25 will be donated to Second Harvest by Blue Raider Sports Properties and then matched by Lee Company for every successful three point basket made by MTSU during those games.

Lee Company, a third generation family owned business, has served Middle Tennessee home owners and businesses for more than seven decades.  Lee Company is strongly committed to the communities it serves through volunteerism, partnerships and sponsorships.

You’re a Winner with Lee Company

October 26, 2016


When you work with Lee Company, you’re working with the best. And you don’t have to take our word for it! The Greater Tennessee Chapter of the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC), and the North Alabama Chapter of Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC), recently honored Lee Company with five Excellence in Construction awards.

To make this announcement even sweeter, every project Lee Company submitted in the ABC competition, won. We consider that tremendous validation that Lee Company delivers exceptional service to customers, no matter how unusual or challenging the work might be.

Award winners are chosen by a panel of construction experts, based on project scope and safety records. The panel considers innovation, quality control, scheduling, value provided and the contractor’s ability to overcome special obstacles and extenuating circumstances. In other words, the same things you care about when choosing a contractor!

Making the Smart Choice – Belmont University

  • 2016 Eagle and Excellence Awards from Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC)
  • Client: Belmont University, Jack C. Massey Business Building
  • Category: Mechanical Commercial/Institutional $2 – 10 million


Students at Belmont University earn As. When you’re a top contractor on campus, you earn ABCs – an ABC award that is!

Congratulations to the Lee Company team who worked on the Belmont University – Jack C. Massey Building project. The Greater Tennessee Chapter of the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) recently honored their work with an Eagle Award in the Mechanical Commercial/Institutional $2 – 10 million division. The project also received an Award of Excellence from the North Alabama Chapter of the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC).

When it was time for Belmont University in Nashville to renovate the Jack C. Massey Business Building, there was a clear choice for handling the mechanical work: Lee Company. After all, we served as the mechanical contractor when the building was erected in 1989!

Working with RC Mathews, the general contractor, Lee Company faced a huge test – the need to renovate a campus classic in tight quarters and an equally tight timeframe. We had a 90-day window to complete four floors of renovations.

Fortunately, study and preparation pay off. Lee Company’s fabrication facility allowed us to preassemble piping systems, and deliver them to the site for just-in-time delivery, minimizing the disruption of day-to-day campus activities and keeping the project on schedule. The facility was completed on time for the class of 2016 and within budget – proving, once again, that Lee Company is the smart choice.
