Tool and Mold Maker

Are you ready for good food, music, festivals, and the best hunting/fishing? Come and visit Lafayette, La in the heart of Cajun country. With our low cost of living and pleasant climate, why would you want to live anywhere else?

ASH Industries is a fast paced manufacturing company with almost NO 'same old same old' days of work. Engineers US-wide come to us with their designs (medical, industrial, consumer goods) and we use their prints, our ingenuity, plastic pellets, and chunks of metal to create finished injection molded thermoplastic products. ASH builds its own tooling & processes its own components. We have experienced consistent 6 to 12% growth/year beating back US & foreign competition. ASH is 27 years old, 60 employees, and we're NOT slowing down any time soon. ASH is NOT a micro-manage facility and we live by the “do your own thing, do it well'' credo. We work in clean, well-organized shop. Come for a visit and you will not want to leave.
