Welcome to Parkston Precision Machining!

I 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. 

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! We also have one other full time veteran employee. All 4 of our kids (3 sons and 1 daughter) have worked here at Parkston Precision Machining as well. 

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. 


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