Community & Environment

lees-solar-installOur employees and families all live near our facility and enjoy the quality of life that Southern California offers. We feel that it is important to take part in bettering our community and help out in the following ways.

If you know of another opportunity where we can help, please let us know.


Lee’s Enterprise supports the following local schools and programs to train the next generation:

  • Involved Mentor Apprentice Machine Shop for Van Nuys High School
  • Involved Mentor Apprentice Machine Shop for Chatsworth High School

Manufacturing is a resource intensive business but we believe in doing all we can to minimize our impact on the environment.  We follow or exceed all government regulations to reduce emissions and recycle coolant and materials.  In a typical year we recycle 5000 gallons of coolant and 100,000 pounds of metals.

Lee’s has also installed a $1.2 million dollar solar electric project on the roof of our facility which produces 370,464 kW hours per year resulting in the following equivalent environmental savings.

Savings Per Year Lifetime Savings

Pounds of CO2 Reduced



Tons of Coal Saved
