Cambridge Engineering
760 Long Road Crossing Drive
Chesterfield, Missouri

Cambridge Engineering is a state-of-the-art lean manufacturer and the region’s best example of a lean implementation for companies in their size. 

At Cambridge, employees speak of having love for their fellow employees often—the sort of love that is built upon mutual respect, admiration, and encouragement to learn and grow personally. Their playbook even includes the phrase, “We express unconditional love and high expectations while behaving with care, courage, integrity and respect.” It might not be instinctive to recognize love in the workplace, but when you are aware of it, you see that it is, in fact, surrounding you. Cambridge leaders will share examples of how love manifests itself into everyday life in their workplace, so that you can start to recognize and appreciate simple acts around you, or simply start to institute the simple acts yourself. 


Established in 1963, Cambridge Engineering is a leading manufacturer of energy-efficient HTHV (high temperature heating and ventilation) direct gas-fired space heaters that save energy, reduce operating costs and safely improve indoor air quality for commercial and industrial facilities. More than two billion square feet of buildings are safely and efficiently heated with Cambridge HTHV heaters. A family owned and operated business, Cambridge supports building owners and managers in North America with factory trained mechanical contractors, sales representatives and service technicians.
