Measurable Impact

We track and monitor the impact of our products and services, expertise and professionalism to ensure our delivery of the exceptional level of service, dollar value and end-results our Clients expect.

Excellence

LEC delivers service excellence as measured by Client feedback, operational excellence as reflected in Client process and financial metrics, and employee excellence as demonstrated by our Team’s expertise and motivation to accelerate sustainable performance.

 

Automation is a crucial element of the manufacturing and production process. The efficiency of any process is dependent on successful system integration, making the decision of selecting the right systems integrator critical.

LEC has the proven ability, experience and depth of knowledge to work with your team to achieve your desired results. With over 140 years of combined experience, our engineers, designers, programmers and technicians provide clients with the highest-quality in automation, communication, data collection and reporting tools.

Client access to our professionals is not restricted to “traditional” business hours and workdays, as our emergency support teams are available to provide assistance any time of the day or night.

Our after-hours support staff is highly experienced in troubleshooting PLCs, AC Drives, DC Drives, relay controls and other types of control components affording us the ability to resolve problems spanning various disciplines of technology. By incorporating remote access features into your control system, our teams are enabled to diagnose issues, and in many cases remedy them from virtually anywhere.

Additionally, we offer our clients the option of attending customized training sessions, either on-site with functional equipment, or in a hands-on classroom environment.

Strategic Partner Alliances

LEC's well-established strategic alliances with high-quality component manufacturers, hardware providers, network carriers and platform developers enable our team to successfully design, produce and integrate custom systems based on the specific, individual needs of each client. Our partnerships with recognized leaders in industrial automation play a vital role in LEC's consistent delivery of successful results by providing our team with instant access to a broad scope of resources, distributors, engineering professionals and technical expertise.

A Message From LEC's President Harold A. Hogue

“As LEC continues to increase in staff size and Client base, our ultimate goal is to expand our knowledge and skill set in order to grow BETTER, not just bigger.”

 

We've seen many changes in the 30 years since we opened our doors. When we started out in 1989, we were originally focused solely on industrial and manufacturing projects. Since then we have grown into an internationally recognized leader in providing quality integrated systems and experienced IIoT enablement for Clients all over the world.

 

The passing years have brought about new technology and we have made it a priority to provide continued training to our experienced engineering teams. The process of continued education has led us to find ourselves right in the middle of the Industrial Internet of Things Evolution.

 

As the IoT Evolution began to unfold in recent years, we found our Clients asking us to provide them with, not only our continued expertise in industrial automation, but also with simple, secure and scalable data acquisition and control solutions.

 

We responded to this need by forming strategic partnerships with national cellular carriers, quality hardware providers and expert platform designers to create our cutting-edge IIoT iQ platform technologies. 

 

We are extremely proud to enable our Clients in cutting costs, improving operations and boosting employee safety via our proven IIoT experience and technology.

 

The creation and expansion associated with our IIoT Communication services are only some of the changes we’ve made to increase Client satisfaction throughout the years. However, there are some things that we will never change at LEC: our continued commitment to making sure our Clients know they are what matter the most and our passion for engineering smarter systems and intelligent solutions for your specific needs.

 

As we continue to grow and expand our services and products, we look forward to growing alongside our Clients by continuing to offer the expert and exceptional service for which we are known.

 

Thank you for putting your trust in the hands of LEC. We look forward to serving you at even higher levels in the future.
