  • Excellent alternative for alum. extrusions. Not as many profile options but similar spec's, smaller company, lower pricing, quicker turnaround, nicer people, family owned. I might buy a few profiles from the other guy but I'll feel better buying them from Parco. I recommend giving them a try.
  • It's one thing to sell a good product- which Parco does. It's another thing to have the level of customer service and just plain helpfulness that this company demonstrates, very rare, and Parco has made a lifelong customer of me because of it. Thank you Parco!
  • Great parts, and shipped quickly! Shipped in less than a week, even with my custom machining being done (as compared to 6-8 weeks with other suppliers).
  • This was the first time I tried Parco-inc. for one of my t-slot projects. It was easy to find what I needed and order on the website. I got the parts quickly and the quality was great, so I will be buying here from now on!
