In 1994, Owner and CEO Steve Himel established Leading Edge Mfg. as a small fabrication shop concentrating mainly on instrumentation enclosures.

Since that time, with a strong focus on customer service and satisfaction, Leading Edge has grown into one of the gulf region's most reputable custom fabricators.  Our products have expanded from modest panels to include such projects as generator enclosure packages used for the Olympic Games, exhibits in the New Orleans Children's Museum, and driller's houses used in the Russian Arctic.

Whether your requirements are for large or small jobs, Leading Edge Mfg. is ready to meet your metal working needs.  Our CNC metal working equipment, 3D Modeling design software, and trained personnel provide us with the tools necessary for quick, on-time deliveries, with quality that is second to none.

We believe that our name says it all.  The literal meaning of the phrase "leading edge" refers to people or organizations who have an advantage because they are the best in their field.  Our commitment to excellence, quality, and customer service give us that edge in our industry. 


We are a family owned company committed to bringing honor to God and becoming the best fabrication company on the Gulf Coast.
