Welcome to Lee Jensen Sales!

Our History

Leroy (Lee) Jensen began business as a wire rope distributor and material lifting fabricator based in Crystal Lake, Illinois.  Throughout the 1970s, Lee Jensen expanded his product line to include the first lasers manufactured for construction, trench boxes, and stone savers.  

As the business continued to grow and relevant product lines were added, Lee Jensen Sales Co., Inc. was incorporated in 1978.  For over 40 years, Lee Jensen Sales Co., Inc. has served the Underground Construction and Heavy Civil Construction market, as well as steel companies and general industry. We provide sales, rentals, and services for many of the products available from leading manufacturers in the industry.

In 2005, Lee Jensen Sales Co., Inc. opened a branch in New Lenox, Illinois to greater serve our customers in that region.  In 2017, the branch was moved to its present location in Mokena, IL; capitalizing on a strong presence in that market and improving its accessibility to major highways.

In 2021, our President of more than 25 years, Jim Jensen, suddenly passed away.  Lee’s pioneer spirit lives on under the direction of Chris Jensen (President), Rick Metropulos (Vice President), and Todd Larsen (Sales Manager and Lee’s grandson).
