In October 2014, the West Feliciana Parish Library opened. Hand-built by our furniture plant, PE provided: the main circulation desk, 15 meeting tables, coffee table and outdoor rockers. The plant also built wooden canopies and end panels for each book case and convenient book bins for children. In addition, our metal fabrication shop contributed 4 courtyard fence panels and an outdoor trash receptacle. The library is a beautiful blend of rustic charm and modern functionality.
In late 2014, Prison Enterprises took on one of our largest projects to date. In just 3 months, our furniture plant constructed over 700 pieces of hand-built, hardwood furniture for the new 21st Judicial District Court in Livingston Parish. We supplied office furniture for the judges' chambers, conference room tables and chairs, and court room furnishings - including jury box seating. In addition, we outfitted the Livingston Parish Sheriff's Office with beautiful cypress furniture - perfect for a true Louisianian!
In September 2014, PE was given the opportunity by St. Alphonsus Catholic Church in Hessmer, Louisiana to refurbish thier solid wood pews and kneelers. Although these pews were over 50 years old, we were able to successfully refurbish the wood to a "like new" condition and reupholster the seat cushions. The finished pews look great and preserve the church's historical integrity.
During the summer of 2014, PE began working with Southeastern Louisiana University on replacing some of their housing furniture. We built 84 end tables, 84 entertainment centers and 84 coffee tables for living areas. We also built 170 desks - complete with three drawers, as well as 170 chests of drawers for bedrooms. During spring break of 2015, we delivered over 70 dining tables with over 200 chairs for the kitchen spaces.
PE worked with Louisiana State Parks on furnishings for cabins in one of their newest State Parks, Bogue Chitto, in Franklinton, Louisiana. We handcrafted furniture per the customer's specifications for four cabins that sleep eight people, one deluxe lodge that sleeps 14 people; and a group camp, which sleeps 52 people. In all, we built 48 bunk beds, six queen beds, 28 nightstands, 6 coffee tables, 10 end tables, and five sets of dining furniture. We also provided rockers for the cabin's porches, as well as stacking chairs and tables for the group camp's meeting space.

The Caddo Parish Reentry Program helps offenders at Caddo Parish Correctional Facility prepare for a successful reintegration into their communities. PE's furniture plant outfitted their office spaces with desks, returns, hutches, credenzas, and file storage units. We also built break room tables, conference tables, and meeting tables with coordinating seating. We furnished their training space with stackable, mobile seating - some of which include tablets. We also provided a podium and durable seating for a an oversized meeting area. Additionally, we built a beautiful reception desk and provided lounge furniture for their waiting area.
