Jun 28, 2018
The red, white, and blue of the American flag is proudly displayed on Park Industries® machinery as a testament to Park’s priority to manufacture machinery in America since 1953. The durability of Park machinery comes from a solid machine foundation manufactured from beginning to end in St. Cloud, Minnesota. Walk through Park's leading manufacturing process of robust stone and metal machinery utilizing the latest technology.
Park Industries® machine manufacturing stands out in the industry with its efficient and unique true fully integrated process; Park controls everything from initial design, to executing the manufacturing, to customer support. The vast 126,400 square foot expanse of Park Industries’ manufacturing facility is filled with state-of-the-art manufacturing equipment and tools. We use three different saws for sawing steel, as well as robotic welding in our process. The Kinetic is our larger cutting system that works alongside the KANO™. The Kinetic is a combination plasma machine that can drill and tap parts and profile steel before it reaches the welders. With a 40’ table, we can fit two 8’ x 20’ sheets on the machine to plasma cut at once.
Park Industries® manufactures machines for both the stone and metal industry. Park Industries® KANO™ HD CNC plasma cutting machine is a cutting solution in the metals market. Aside from selling it, we also use the KANO™ to cut steel for other machines in our internal manufacturing process. The precise cuts of the KANO™ assist Park in producing machinery of the highest quality to the stone and metal industry.
WATCH: Park Industries® World-Class Manufacturing Capabilities
Park Industries® has many large pieces of equipment operating within the manufacturing space. Along the ceiling there are a variety of cranes available with a weight capacity spanning from 2,000 pounds to 25-Tons.

An automated 450-foot paint assembly line is in place for small parts. Small parts include anything 0-800 pounds and up to 10 feet long. We have four automated parts retrieval machines called vertical lift modules or VLMs.
Park’s integrated manufacturing style utilizes the latest technology and offers assurance with quality check in numerous stages of the process.
