Welcome to Parkston Precision Machining!

We welcome you to our Veteran owned, family

operated Waterjet Cutting and Machine shop!


Ever since I was a kid, I have always liked getting

my hands dirty. I was raised on a farm in Colorado

where I worked on farm machinery, cars and whatever I could tear apart. I love engineering new concepts and fabricating new parts and have since an early age. I later enlisted into the Navy for 4 years as a Structural Jet Mechanic.  After serving my country, I was employed at Continental Airlines in Denver until they decided to move out of state. There I worked on the plane structures. After their closing, I went on to a Tech School to learn machining and earned my machining certificate. 


I wanted to get back to the country and small town living, so my wife and I moved to South Dakota where we had our 4 children right here in Parkston. 

I worked at Mitchell Manufacturing from 1994-1995 as a CNC Operator. In 1995 I started working for Universal

Packaging (which is now known as Graphic Packaging) in Mitchell. I worked on equipment in the Maintenance department, and later transferred to die sharpening.


In February 2004 I started my own business here in Parkston. I could see the need for a welding and machine shop for the area. Today, we continue to operate as a Veteran owned, family business!  All 4 of our children  (3 sons and 1 daughter) have worked here at Parkston Precision Machining as well.  My wife Chris, has been working for me since the beginning.  She is the companies office manager and sometimes you may see her out in the shop helping with some projects.  

In 2019 we happily announced that we added a Waterjet Table.  To find out more about  our waterjet,  check out the services tab for more information.   We are hoping to have our much larger Waterjet operating in the next few months.  


Give us a call or stop by! We love new projects and challenges.
