Our History

At Lakeside Industries, we are a family-owned and mission-driven company passionate about our culture. We have
worked hard to maintain a tight-knit community, dedicated to safety, customer experience, and quality. Coming from a
humble background in the hotel service industry, the Lee family built our company on what they knew best: being of
service to others. Our story starts in the 1950s:


1952: Rhoady Lee Jr. and his family purchased Lakeside Gravel Co., Inc, which operated aggregate and concrete sales operations in Bellevue and Issaquah, Washington


The Lees purchased Acme Paving in Redmond, WA in 1964, entering the asphalt paving business. In the same year, a heavy-civil construction company under the name Red-Samm Construction

Co was started. As Red-Samm grew, it operated in Washington, Oregon, Montana, Alaska, and Hawaii with offices in Redmond, WA and Juneau, AK.

Our Cornerstones

Lakeside Industries is committed to upholding the highest level of safety standards, providing high-quality work for our customers, improving our communities, environmental sustainability, and building a diverse and inclusive workforce. These values are the heartbeat of our culture, and we strive to embody them day in and day out.
