Flooding in Acadiana

Oct 15, 2016

Leading Edge Manufacturing believes in the importance of donating time and resources to making a difference in the local community. In August 2016, the Acadiana area experienced an unprecedented flood that affected thousands of homes and businesses. The city of Youngsville, La., where Leading Edge Manufacturing is located, was one of the hardest hit areas.

The company knew of a local dance studio that sustained major flood damage. Not only the studio, but the home of the owners of the studio was also affected. Dance classes were scheduled to begin in a month, and they were faced with the monumental task of having to repair not only their home, but their business also. Leading Edge got involved and began the work on the studio.

With the help of a few local churches and other volunteers, they began the cleaning and demolition work necessary on the studio. When this was complete, they performed the necessary repair work to restore the studio to its previous condition. The work was completed in time for the studio to open as scheduled for its next session.

Leading Edge Manufacturing is committed to giving back to the community. They believe that it is important to be involved in the surrounding area and use some of their time and resources in helping those who need it.
