Keith Lentz began working in the septic tank business with his dad when he was in High School. A forward thinker, Keith knew that Lentz Septic Tank Service had an exceptional opportunity to expand by adding pumping and repair the the installation business. Keith and his brother, Roy Jr., operated the company as co-owners for many years, then Keith eventually bought out his brother’s portion of the business and began expanding again with the help of his two sons, Jason and Jarrid.
Keith is the president of the NC Pumpers Group. His passion for ensuring that the public wastewater is handled properly is his motivation to remain active in understanding and supporting the efforts of the NC Pumpers Group. Keith cares deeply about the environment and believes that it is the responsibility of local business owners, including himself, to set an example to improve the community, and keep the waterways clean.
With his father’s influence and setting the stage, Keith Lentz learned at a very young age to always give it your all, treat others with respect and live every aspect of your life with integrity. He taught his boys the same, and it certainly shows in the way that Lentz Septic Tank Service has become a well respected company in the Statesville, NC and Lake Norman area since 1958.
