Schenectady proclaims ‘LeChase Day’ for company’s 75th anniversary

LeChase’s Schenectady office celebrated the company’s 75th anniversary on June 13. In recognition of the milestone, Schenectady Mayor Gary McCarthy proclaimed the day “LeChase Day” in the city.

The company, which ranks among the top five construction firms in New York’s Capital Region, has completed more than $1 billion in local projects to date.

LeChase CEO and Managing Partner William H. Goodrich thanked attendees at the event, held at the company’s Harborside Drive office. LeChase opened its first Schenectady office in 2003, moving to its current location a year ago to accommodate continued growth.

After introducing Mayor McCarthy, who presented the proclamation, Goodrich brought up Capital Region Chamber of Commerce CEO Mark Egan and Galesi Group President and CEO David Buicko, who each said a few words about LeChase and its positive impact in the local community.
