Lencyk Masonry Builds on Strong Foundation

BOARDMAN, Ohio — New construction throughout eastern Ohio kept Lencyk Masonry Co. Inc. busy in 2019, says chief financial officer Angie Lavorini, making last year the company’s third consecutive year of record-setting sales.

While school construction such as North Royalton Elementary, Hudson Elementary and the addition to Jackson Milton were a large part of the company’s volume, many other projects were completed, Lavorini notes. These include NEOMED’s Bio-Med Science Academy in Rootstown and Akron Children’s Hospital expansions in Portage County and Austintown.

Among 2020 projects are TLC Insurance & Wealth in Howland, Girard’s waste water treatment plant, Campus Lofts and University Edge III at Youngstown State University and the Leppo Building in Tallmadge.

Lencyk’s restoration/renovation division experienced record growth with a 75% increase in 2019, Lavorini continues. The largest of the division’s projects was the masonry remediation at Ravenna High School.

Among Lencyk Masonry’s new jobs are the Streetsboro fire station, Canfield Fair arena, Pymatuning and Mosquito lakes’ bath houses and the TJX Homegoods warehouse in Lordstown.

Senior Vice President Eli Shreeve says the company’s five full-time estimators and project managers have numerous projects to bid and he foresees a strong 2020.

“We have continuing safety training and education for our field employees and management,” Shreeve says. “We added a record number of apprentices in 2019 and worked with the Builders Association to introduce high school students to the trades.”

Last year, Lencyk Masonry donated labor, materials and project management for the Boardman Township Safety Services Memorial project.

The company was founded in 1984 by its president, Larry Lencyk Sr., and his wife Jackie. It employs from 100 to 200, depending on workload.
