We began manufacturing press-on tires for the Fairmont Railway Motor Company in Memphis. Failing rubber tires made their railroad service equipment operable for only a few hours each day.
Bailey-Parks' urethane tires granted them with unlimited operating time.
Soon after, Bailey-Parks began recovering industrial rollers and industrial wheels used in the manufacturing of housing products such as paneling, plywood, composite roofing and pre-finished molding.
An in-house stripping and grinding setup was added to the Bailey-Parks operation, as well as a machine shop.
Eventually, the machine shop led to a metal fabricating department, which led to building custom equipment. Bailey-Parks then expanded into a full line of forklift wheels, press-on tires and glue and glycerin rollers.
Committed to continued growth, Bailey-Parks began making custom urethane parts for automotive industry assembly plants. From there, the company diversified into serving the grain, food processing and mining industries.
Today, Bailey-Parks makes urethane products that are used in hundreds of manufacturing processes around the world. And, with very few exceptions, we still make all of our molds, tooling and custom machines in house at our plant in Memphis.
