Action Industries today officially announced its sponsorship of “The Cajun Baby” Cliff Crochet in his quest to win the prestigious Bassmaster Classic while in turn highlighting the company’s diverse services in the oilfield and petrochemical industries.
Action Industries was founded in 1981, two years before Crochet was born, and he’s been familiar with the company his whole life.
“I like doing business with people I know and trust,” said Crochet. “Action Industries and its subsidiaries keep Louisiana running smoothly. Businesses respect the work they do. Sponsorship is not something I take likely. I’ve had adequate time to feel comfortable representing them to the folks both in and out of Louisiana.”
Action Industries is headquartered in White Castle, La., along the Mississippi River and not far from Crochet’s hometown of Pierre Part.
“Pierre Part is well-known these days as the home of the Landry’s (Troy, Jacob, and Chase) from the History Channel’s Swamp People, crawfish and the Cajun Baby,” said Michael Medine, Jr., President and CEO of Action Industries. “We are proud of Cliff and happy to see him doing well on the BASSMASTER Elite Series. We want to help Cliff drop more weight on the scales at every tournament and allow him to be seen by more people for the genuine original he is.”
