A Meeting Place Like No Other

The S. Dale High Leadership Center is the epicenter of High Family philanthropy and community outreach. It's a place where business and community leaders come together to inspire each other, to share ideas, and to help shape our world.

The S. Dale High Leadership Center is home to The High Family Office and High Foundation. It’s a testament to the stability and centralization of The High Family Office function, which attends to shareholder structure, succession planning, and meeting High companies’ capital requirements.

And as the home of High Foundation, the Leadership Center formalizes the High Family’s philanthropic functions, which have grown considerably over the past several years and are poised to become a new force for humanitarianism in Lancaster and beyond.

Like-minded nonprofits looking for a venue for events, meetings, conferences, and celebrations will find that the Leadership Center provides the right environment to achieve their objectives.

The High Story

The High Story spans three generations, and is going on four. A family business that has grown to become a leading Central Pennsylvania employer, High’s roots go deep in the Lancaster community.

The theme of the story is one of entrepreneurship and values. Every chapter features the two tenets of The High Philosophy, the principles that guide the owners and the co-workers alike: to build trustworthy relationships; and to be innovative leaders.

High has built a reputation for taking the jobs that others can’t or won’t. Deep expertise and a commitment to customer success distinguish High companies in the markets they serve.

Long ago, the company helped the transportation industry shift from riveting to welded members for steel bridges. Since we set that precedent, High prides itself on product, process, and service innovations that drive value. 

Our vision is to bring about positive change, and that also applies to the communities in which we do business. Business has a role in solving community problems. To make a difference that is meaningful and sustainable, High strives to be servant leaders in everything we do.

We hope you’ll join us. As Dale has said, "The more we can do together, the more we can become."
