Employee Disaster Relief Fund

As we did after Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, we will utilize the Laitram Employee Disaster Relief Fund to assist those Laitram employees who suffered significant losses due to Hurricane Ida. We have employees who sustained significant structural damage due to wind and fallen trees while others received damage to their homes due to flood waters.

Employee Housing Assistance

In an effort to provide a much-needed resource to employees whose homes have been impacted by Hurricane Ida, Laitram has partnered with McEnery Residential Group to offer a dedicated team of Real Estate professionals to assist with housing needs.

McEnery has four dedicated agents available to assist Laitram employees in finding affordable furnished and unfurnished housing options.
