Our History

A Legacy of Excellence Since the 1940s

Lemartec is a three-generation, family-owned and operated Design-Build and Construction Management firm specializing in steel building systems with commercial and industrial applications. Since the 1940s, the Garcia-Tuñon family has focused on the importance of design and value engineering as a critical success factor for each and every project. This commitment to quality from the pre-construction stems from our founder’s belief that an integrated approach to design and construction is the best way to ensure a successful project for our clients.

Guillermo Garcia-Tuñon, Sr., P.E. fled Cuba in 1960, forced to leave everything behind, including a flourishing engineering and steel fabricating company he had spent a lifetime building. The business served the island’s blooming sugar industry as well as some of the world’s largest corporations including Firestone, Glidden Paint, Bacardi Rum, Telemundo Studios, ESSO Standard Oil, U.S. Rubber, Polar Beer, and Goodrich Tires, among others. After eight years in Spain, he and his family moved to the United States, and in 1979, together with his sons, Guillermo Jr. and Jose, Mr. Garcia-Tuñon, Sr. founded Lemartec Engineering and Construction Corporation.

Since then, Lemartec has become a leader in the construction industry, building upon its strong commitment to quality and excellence, detail-oriented professionalism, and relationships – all within a framework of honesty and integrity.

Manny Garcia-Tuñon, third generation President and CEO, continues the Lemartec legacy of excellence with innovative tenacity and entrepreneurial spirit. From our Board of Directors to our dedicated team of engineers, project managers, estimators, among other professionals, Lemartec’s goal is to create value for all stakeholders in the industries that we serve – our clients, employees, business partners, the community and the environment.

 

“Building relationships isn’t only part of our proud history; it’s a core value we take with us into the future.” — Manny Garcia-Tuñon, President & CEO – 3rd Generation Owner
