Louisiana was once known as the “Cradle of Capitalism” because of its rich history of industrialization. The state’s economy shifted from agriculture to manufacturing during the 20th century. Manufacturing remains a vital part of the Louisiana economy. In 2016, the state produced $62.2 billion worth of goods and services, accounting for 9% of the nation’s output. Louisiana also produces more than half of the country’s crawfish and seafood. Below are all the companies in our directory that are made in Louisiana.
