Melvin Lentz, Owner/President
Melvin Lentz starting performing electrical work in 1987. During that time, he became very knowledgeable in the installation of building automation and control systems.
In 1998, Damuth Trane, an HVAC system provider and building services company in Chesapeake, Va., approached him about becoming a preferred vendor. The company was having a hard time finding qualified contractors to install their control systems. But Damuth Trane saw advantages to partnering with Melvin, due to their long-standing relationship and his deep knowledge of their building automation systems. They asked him to pull a team together, and as a result, he founded Atlantic Wiring Group in 1998.
He currently holds a master electrician’s license.
