About Us

Building a Legacy of Excellence in the Upstate

To recall a time when there was not a Long working in the pipeline construction industry you would have to look back more than 70 years. 

Lee D. Long Sr. began his work in the pipeline and construction trade in the early 1950s. It was then that the Long name became synonymous with the ability to build the toughest jobs to the highest standards—and never backing down from a challenge. His son, Lee D. Long Jr., followed in his footsteps and built our business from the ground up in his basement in the town of Simpsonville.

Living Up to Our Reputation

While we still call Simpsonville home, we’ve certainly grown over the years. We continue to refine our process to bring the most value to our clients. We constantly strive to maintain our reputation as one of the region’s foremost construction firms. The quality of our work reinforces all of the respect that our organization has earned from people on all sides of the construction community.
