OUR MISSION STATEMENT
“Provide high quality, state-of-the-art, and cost effective engineering and surveying services to a diversified clientele, which will assure a fair return on investment to provide for the continued employment and well being of the employees, and the perpetuation of the company.”
As part of our mission statement, our resources are devoted to our most important asset – our employees. Our business continues to grow, and we recognize that this sustained company growth would not be possible without the hard work and dedication of each individual to produce quality results on every project.
We continue to invest in the improvement of our employees by encouraging the latest certifications, continuing education, cross-training programs, mentoring, in-house training seminars, conferences, trade seminars, professional memberships and trade organizations. Several of our employees also hold positions on various technical boards and with trade associations.
While H.F. Lenz Company may be headquartered in a small town, our projects are anything but. We compete with other top engineering companies for complex, $200 million+ projects for high-profile clientele nationwide and work in collaboration with the largest architectural and construction management firms in the world.
We are fiercely loyal, as all principals are promoted from within the company. Our employee-centered focus is just one reason for our outstanding retention and attraction of top talent in the Consulting Engineering industry. Consistently ranked in ENR’s Top 500 Design Firms, BD+C and MEP Giants, we’ve enjoyed a stable employment history with an 85% repeat business rate from satisfied clients – a testament to the caliber of our employees.
As a part of our goal to be responsible stewards to our surrounding environment and community, H.F. Lenz Company is committed to giving back.
CHARITY: Each year the company hosts a Charity Golf Outing to raise money for a different charity. This year we raised over $21,000 for the Children and Youth Advisory Board, which provides assistance to the foster and dependent children of the County.

The company donates to various local charities, including the Salvation Army, The Association for the Blind, Women’s Help Center, and many others.
