A Domestic and Global Leader

To fulfill their purpose — be a domestic and global leading component supplier offering fabricated turn-key solutions to their customers — Hayes Manufacturing has stayed up to date with the latest technology and has adapted to their customers growing needs. In servicing the railroad, energy and oil and gas industries with machining, metal fabrication, welding and more, they’ve needed a lot of heavy-power electrical equipment.

Hayes Manufacturing attributes their electrical success to Cleco’s power capacity, personalized service and ability to forge advantageous relationships within the business community. As James Hayes, Hayes Manufacturing CEO, noted, “The reliability is phenomenal. If we have an outage, they’re there. [We] need more service, they’re there. They’re always there when you need them […] That’s why Cleco makes Hayes Manufacturing a better company.”
