ABOUT US

LEADING EDGE MFG.

WHO WE ARE

We have always been passionate about helping our clients succeed. Over the years, we have grown to be one of the Gulf region’s most reputable custom metal fabricators. Our products have expanded from modest panels to include such projects as generator enclosure packages used for the Olympic Games and driller’s houses used in the Russian Arctic.

We approach every opportunity with the goal of providing our clients with solutions that reduce lead-times and improve quality. Our vast range of metal fabrication capabilities can help clients obtain desired results and ultimately increase their bottom lines.

The Beginning

Leading Edge was founded in June of 1994. It started out in a small, 2500 square foot shop, on the banks of the Vermillion River.

Bigger and Better

Due to the need for more space, Leading Edge moved to it’s current 24,000 square foot facility in Youngsville, LA.

Sole Ownership

Steve Himel purchased his partner’s portion of the company.

A New Era

With Steve and Felicia continuing to provide oversight and guidance to the company, the baton of leadership is passed as Steve names Stephanie Clotiaux, his eldest daughter, the Chief Operating Officer of the company. All four of Steve’s children play a part in the operations of the company.
