Lencyk Masonry Builds on 40-Year Foundation

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – Lencyk Masonry Co. Inc. will celebrate its 40th anniversary this year. The company was founded by Larry Lencyk Sr., who remains its president. It started with just two employees, now employs more than 175 and has completed thousands of projects.

“We are excited to note that in 2023 we were awarded the largest project in our history – the new Cuyahoga Falls [grades] 6-12 campus,” says Angeline Lavorini, chief financial officer.

Other school projects Lencyk Masonry will work on this year include the Triway Local Schools PK-12 campus in Wooster; the Tuscarawas Valley Schools PK-6 addition and renovation in Zoarville; the United Local Schools K-12 school in Hanoverton; and the STEM building adjacent to Steubenville High school.

Lencyk also was awarded masonry contracts for the Warren City Schools Recreation & Wellness Center, the Austintown Local Schools field house and bleachers project and the Salem City Schools Wellness Center.

Other projects Lencyk will be working on this year are the addition and renovation at the headquarters of Farmers National Bank in Canfield, construction of the Mercy Health and Lifepoint Rehabilitation Hospital in Youngstown and various jobs at the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton.

“We are also pleased to be continuing our work on a few homes in the Sewickley, Pa., area that require our experienced detailed manpower to carry out the homeowner’s visions,” says Lavorini.

“With all this work, the company continues to carry out Larry Lencyk Sr.’s passion to lead quality people to do quality work,” she adds.

In 2023, the company introduced mobile time keeping for workers in the field. And it was awarded a grant from the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation to purchase additional hydraulic scaffolding.

“In search of workforce talent in 2024, we plan to continue to sponsor the Mahoning Valley Skilled Trades Expo, where high school students are introduced to the trades, says Lavorini.

The company also intends to form partnerships with area trade schools and nonprofit organizations to present the bricklayer trade as a lucrative career, she says.
