Existing Industry

Hammond’s pro-business environment, superb geographic location, access to a skilled workforce and proximity to higher education programs, make it an ideal home for a number of existing industries.


Home Depot, Winn Dixie, Sav-A- Lot, Dean Foods, Entergy, Cardinal Health and XPO all base their operations in Hammond because of our easy access to transcontinental railways, interstate highways, airports, and cargo ports.



Manufacturing leaders including MCC Chemical and Keen Ovens have seen the value of Hammond’s skilled labor force, competitive labor costs, and proximity to some of Louisiana’s most respected higher education institutions.



Cutting-edge institutions including North Oaks Health System and Cypress Pointe Hospital are complemented by the many healthcare training and programs offered by Southeastern Louisiana University, Northshore Technical Community College and Compass Career College.
