In 2015, Lee Contracting expanded its capabilities to include machine repair. Adding machine repair to our core capabilities was a natural progression for our company. We were already handling the utilities, transportation and rigging of presses in-house. We wanted to grow our company to truly become an indispensable asset for your industrial projects.
Our machine repair crews are highly experienced in maintaining, troubleshooting, repairing and rebuilding your machinery. Our teams utilize the best in-house equipment to upgrade and refurbish your equipment.
Our equipment includes:
We have a Giddings & Lewis CNC boring machine with an 89” vertical travel, 168” cross travel and a 72” by 170” table.
Our CNC and manual lathes have the capacity up to 32” diameter and 120” length.
Our Blanchard grinder has a 60” capacity.
Our Faro ion laser tracker allows us to reverse engineer components for your equipment needs.
We offer our customers full portable machining capabilities, including milling, boring, bore welding, facing and keyway cutting. This allows us to control downtime and save you money. We can also design and implement preventative maintenance programs to fit your facility’s needs.
With the addition of this new division comes the need to staff it. We are currently looking to fill four open positions; Machine Repair Journeyman, Industrial Maintenance Technician, Machinist and Industrial Maintenance Technician (Hydraulics).
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the job growth outlook for machinery mechanics and machinery maintenance workers is favorable. The average growth rate for all occupations is 7 percent, however, the growth rate for machinery mechanics is 16 percent between 2014 and 2024.
If you are interested in becoming an industrial machinery mechanic, you should have a steady hand, good hand-eye coordination, mechanical skills and troubleshooting skills. Most mechanics receive on-the-job-training for more than a year. During training, you will learn a variety of skills, including setting up, cleaning, lubricating, starting machinery, shop mathematics, blueprint reading, hand tool use, welding, electronics and computer programming.
With the need for machine repair growing, we are keeping up with our customer’s demands by adding and growing our machine repair division. We are looking for qualified candidates to fill our open positions.
We aim to be your industrial turn-key solution.
