We Make Real Parts for Real Companies

Who are we?

Parkway Industrial opened shop in the fall of 2022.  Planning started in the spring of that same year when students from Bradford Area High School met with district administration and members from Northwest Industrial Resource Center to lay the groundwork for a student-run manufacturing enterprise.  Startup funds for the program were provided by a grant from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Department of Community and Economic Development.  

The students in the program are all advanced students from our business, marketing, engineering, and machining programs.  The creation of Parkway Industrial has given them a chance to take what they have learned, apply it in the real world, and contribute to the local economy by providing services and manufactured goods to support local businesses.  Partnering with local industry allows our students to develop technical and soft skills based on the needs identified by those companies, with a goal of providing future talent in all areas of the local manufacturing workforce. 

The bulk of our production work is based on CNC machining.  Some might liken us to a job shop, and we’re okay with that.  We are excited about what we do, and we are looking forward to expanding our reach to provide high-quality cost-effective manufacturing services to new business customers. 

If you have machining or design needs, keep reading to learn more about us – or contact us through the links provided on these web pages.  

Our Mission

Our mission is to produce real parts and deliver value-added services to local manufacturing companies and to provide high school students the opportunity to gain real world manufacturing experiences and develop technical and soft skills for a competitive advantage in the workplace.
