Paralux is located in Central Pennsylvania in our 15,000 square foot facility. After being involved in manufacturing in various industries - including cable railing for 15 years - we decided to launch our own brand. In short, we build great cable railings. Our facility houses 10 CNC Swiss Style Lathes, 2 Swaging Machines, a mill and many other pieces of inspection equipment. Our process creates a brilliant surface finish with unrivaled uniformity among parts.
By keeping production in-house we are able to meet your deadlines time and time again. Our extensive inventory of equipment allows us to customize parts for the most complex projects. You will receive attentive care because at the end of the day we know you are trusting us to meet your deadlines.
