PONTIAC, Mich., Jan. 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Lee Industrial Contracting, Inc., a premier company in "Providing Turn-Key Solutions for Plant Projects," is proud to announce that it has implemented an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP).

The ESOP continues Lee Industrial Contracting's commitment to local ownership and will help strengthen team environments internally.
This transition will put employees on a path to control their destiny into the foreseeable future. "How do we best create value for our shareholders? Invest in the success of others and value the contributions of every employee-owner in the organization. Our company's single greatest asset is its employees," says Business Operations, Chris Temple.
"I have been at Lee Industrial Contracting for 11 years and watched the company over triple in size and it always amazes me that we can keep growing with such talent. I know that this has a lot to do with the training and teamwork and I just wanted to say that it is nice to be a part of the growth of this company for many years to come. I really don't think that there is another company out there like ours," says Account Manager, Mike Hahn.
Lee Industrial Contracting's transition to employee ownership is the latest chapter in the remarkable story that began in 1989. It has since grown into a successful company of over 300 employees, "Providing Turn-Key Solutions for Plant Projects."
