Welcome to Parkway-Kew Corporation
making machine parts last longer since 1952

About Us

Our company was established in 1952 by a welding supply salesman named Eugene Walter Klein. One day one of his valued customers asked for his assistance on how to repair some run down machine parts and how to make them wear resistant. Gene recommended a special hardfacing wear resistant weld alloy that was being used to repair earth-moving equipment. After proving the idea by welding the first test piece in his garage, he secured our very first big order to rebuild 100 26" diameter Vaughn wire drawing blocks for a company called CF&I, Roebling, NJ.
In 1953, KEW (Klein, Eugene Walter) Engineering struck a partnership with Parkway Welding, a company that focused on rebuilding and hard surfacing heavy equipment, to form the new Parkway-Kew Corporation. The business has since grown and expanded under his son, Eugene Edward Klein Sr. (Gene Sr.). After outgrowing 4 separate facilities, the company relocated to its current headquarters in North Brunswick, NJ in November, 1999. On the right you can see the 3 generations of Eugene Edward Klein, with Eddie (now 11 yrs. old) dangling from the overhead crane.

Parkway-Kew Corporation uses innovative HVOF, plasma spray and metallizing equipment in the application of ceramic, tungsten carbide, and metal alloy wear resistant coatings to make parts durable against corrosion and wear-and-tear. The hard surfacing repairs we provide, as well as our manufactured wear resistant products, are utilized by more than 500 companies all over the world, across various industries.
