YOUNGSTOWN – Lencyk Masonry Co. Inc. reported a profitable 2020 even with all the challenges of the pandemic, reports its chief financial officer, Angeline Lavorini.
When construction was deemed essential, Lencyk was faced with new safety regulations and concerns for employees’ health. Funds from the Paycheck Protection Program and BWC helped to retain employees, enabling Lencyk to work in a safe manner, Lavorini says.
Among projects that kept the company busy were Cross Creek Elementary and Indian Creek High School in Wintersville; YSU Excellence Training Center; Planet Fitness at Southern Park Mall; Streetsboro Fire Station; Briarfield Place and CTM Label. In Pennsylvania, Lencyk was awarded the Pittsburgh Raceway Complex.
Also in 2020, the company was awarded the largest project in its history: the Kenmore/ Garfield Learning Center in Akron. This project will take two years to complete, Lavorini says.
Indications are that 2021 will be another outstanding year, she continues. Current projects include the Akron/Summit fleet maintenance building, Geauga County office building, Youngstown library renovation, Aultman Hospital Timkin Family Cancer Center in Canton and water treatment plants in East Palestine and Brookfield.
Todd Yallech, senior vice president of field operations, says Lencyk Masonry “makes sure our employees are trained and updated, going above and beyond current safety regulations.”
Safety continues to morph and advance with the needs of each project and environment, adds Eli Shreeve, senior vice president.
“We are proud of our workforce’s willingness to work through the pandemic with COVID regulations. These men and women deserve to be recognized for their efforts,” he says.
Lencyk Masonry, established in 1984, is led by its founder and president, Larry Lencyk. “He shares his passion to lead quality people to do quality work,” Lavorini says.
