A legacy of greatness

We are a premier steel fabricator with an annual output capacity of more than 50,000 tons.

Our company comes from humble beginnings in 1944 as a playground equipment builder. We’ve now grown to be behind some of the most exciting projects in the country, from small, highly customized art installations to some of the largest buildings ever built.

Backed by the Best

LeJeune joined APi Group in 1989. As part of a family of 38 independently run companies, we enjoy unique advantages and resources that are traditionally unavailable to trade contractors.

APi gives us access to more safety programs, talent acquisition, leadership development, banking, insurance and bonding, helping us lower our clients’ risk in every project.

Seriously Safe

Safety is an essential part of our process on every project. Site-specific procedures, daily toolbox safety meetings, and weekly foreman and project-wide safety meetings are all key components to protecting our workers and our partners. Our robust rules and guidelines include DuPont STOP, a behavior-based program. In 2020 we had an EMR rating of .64.

Building Community

In addition to funding projects for non-profits and organizations that build for the good of our communities, we invest our time and our people in causes that help make the world a better place.
