Advanced Cutting Solutions also seeks to minimize waste.Peter Schneeweiss, vice president, business partner and owner, said it provides customers with “clean, economical and quality products that drive down the cost of renewable energy.”

Established in 2014, Advanced Cutting Solutions is constantly seeking new markets. Right now, its focus is on wind energy, but Schneeweiss said there is a new development in the transportation industry, now that the use of electric cars and buses is on the rise.

Since its inception five years ago, the company has grown from two employees to more than 50. Schneeweiss estimates that at least 80 to 90 percent of its workforce is from New Orleans East.

“We felt it was an underutilized area,” said Schneeweiss. “There is a strong workforce … We thought it was an opportunity to help the community, as well as a way to support our business.”

Ultimately, he said of the company: “We help our customers create a cleaner future for tomorrow — today.”
