The Lake Area Industry Alliance is composed of over 20 local industries. Formed in 2000, LAIA is a channel of communication between industries and the community, as well as leaders, public officials, educators and non-profit organizations.
Local industries have a positive impact in Southwest Louisiana. Good jobs, great benefits, security to thousands of residents in our region - these are just a few of the reasons we’re fortunate to have industries right here at home.
Many of the processes within an industrial facility are unfamiliar to the surrounding community. Industries are most profitable when product is kept safely in the pipeline, thus the goal of regulatory agencies and the industries themselves is the same: produce a product in the most environmentally-friendly way possible.
