About Lakeland

Lakeland is the most complete provider of high-quality electrical component and systems solutions for growing industrial companies throughout the Midwest. With Lakeland, you get product, manufacturing and industry expertise that has been built up for over 60 years.

You can depend on Lakeland’s deep knowledge, extensive product line, and track record of innovative solutions to deliver a more comprehensive range of industrial products and services than anyone else. When the deadlines are tight and the demands are complex, trust the knowledgeable team at Lakeland to find professional-grade solutions that ignite growth, control costs and thrill your customers.

The work we do is guided by three key company-wide initiatives: safety, training, and fulfillment. As our CEO, Dave Fox, describes in his video, our commitment to safety is a thread that is woven through the fabric of our business. We are also committed to fostering growth for our employees, personally, professionally and financially. As such, we host a variety of training sessions every week and encourage all of our employees to participate in educational opportunities outside of the workday. We work tirelessly to engage our employees in their work, and to promote within the business to ensure professional fulfillment.

Training Programs

One of the most valued experiences at The Lakeland Companies is our Management Training Program. Through this comprehensive curriculum, we prepare our next generation of leaders to manage our businesses, and in turn, innovate to drive company and market growth. Over the course of two years, trainees rotate through various parts of our companies to get a hands-on understanding of our customers, technologies, products, services and operations. This includes on-the-job learning, vendor’s schools, and, with supervision, self-led discovery.

Lakeland's Social Responsibility in Action

Congratulations to all of the volunteers who made this year's bell ringing with The Salvation Army such a huge success! We are proud to announce that in just eight bell ringing sessions, our volunteers helped raise more than $12,000 in community donations. With Lakeland Engineering's $8,000 match, the grand total of money raised this holiday season was $20,655! To read more about Lakeland's commitment to social responsibility, click here.
