LEC Continues to Embody a Zero Accident Culture

There is nothing more important than getting our team home safe to their families every day.
One of the reasons Laketown Electric Corporation shines above the competition is our commitment to a zero accident culture. The proof is in the numbers and the actions that help shape our safety mission.
LEC has had zero lost time incidents in 5+ years, a .70 MOD rate, we perform 30 annual third party jobsite inspections by OSHA+Environmental Compliance Systems (OECS) , a strong investment into training with the best trainers, 100% commitment to PPE, toolbox talks, pre-task planning and so much more.
Our safety minded culture is a leading factor in why Minnesota’s largest and most successful general contractors hire Laketown Electric Corporation on their most challenging projects time after time. In addition, we will go above and beyond to bring a level of the most discerning workmanship, communication and team mentality which will make GCs smell like roses to owners, and lead to future work as a team.

LEC Performs as General Contractor on the $3 Million Dollar Medium Voltage to 480v Service Renovation at Anoka Ramsey Community College

Recently, Laketown Electric Corporation was the prime contractor/GC for Anoka Ramsey Community College, where we changed the entire campus from medium voltage electrical services to 480 volt services.

This prime contract was around $3 million in scope and not only included electrical, but also roofing, fencing, landscape restoration, concrete, structural steel, mechanical piping and a few other trades. Achieving on challenging projects that not many others can tackle is a large part of what defines LEC.

Laketown Electric Corporation played quarterback to organize and hire all of the trades involved. We have completed many similar projects in recent years where LEC is the prime contractor on jobs where 80% or more of the job falls within our scope.

At the same time, we also completed a $2.3 million dollar renovation of the nursing area at the school. Like all Laketown Electric Corporation projects, our piping is neat and clean!

Unique challenges require a team that will provide innovative solutions. One of the benefits of working with Laketown Electric Corporation is that our team employs multi-skilled craftspeople. We are not afraid to pour some concrete pads, or in this case assemble a sharp looking enclosure.

LEC Makes Inc 5000, a list of the 5000 Fastest Growing Private Companies for the 7th Time

Lucky #7! We are thrilled to announce that Laketown Electric Corporation has made the #Inc5000, a list of the 5000 fastest growing private companies in the United States for the 7th time! This was propelled by Laketown Electric Corporation’s nearly 40% growth in 2021. Less than 3% of all Inc award winners have been 7X winners, putting us in rare company.
LEC’s company tagline is “Remarkable Efforts Deliver Extraordinary Outcomes.” We live this mantra. We have been successful by outworking our peers, going steps above, not settling for mediocrity and taking personal responsibility.
LEC is also never afraid to hire those that, quite honestly, have areas of expertise or skillsets that other team members may lack. It is also a mindset that everyone at some point or another should not be too afraid to be the chief cook and bottle washer.
Thank you again to every member of our team, their families, the communities in which we serve, our customers, suppliers and industry friends – without you, we would not be here.
