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 enablement products and 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.


Harold Hogue
