About Us

  • In 1943, JM Lapeyre had an idea for a shrimp peeler at the age of 16.  Twenty years later, that innovative idea led to JM founding the Laitram Corporation.

    Over the years, Laitram and its four operating divisions (Intralox, Lapeyre Stair, Laitram Machine Shop, Laitram Machinery) have revolutionized the manufacturing landscape in South Louisiana and around the world.  More than 1800 employees work collaboratively to produce innovate products and solutions globally.  The work we do provides us with endless opportunities and challenges, and we value every contribution made towards exceptional company performance.
