Mid-Park (then know as Rough River Metal Products) was established in 1971 by Mr. Nelson Bernard in Western Hardin Co., KY. Nelson, an accomplished tool and die maker since 1956, was the sole proprietor of the part-time company which mainly performed custom tool & die work.
In 1976, Mr. Alan Bernard, Nelson’s son, purchased half of Rough River Metal Products from his father. With help from Nelson, Alan and a part-time employee began machine threading and stamping products for the agricultural industry.
In the fall of 1977, Alan and Nelson decided Rough River Metal Products had outgrown its current location. Alan and Nelson then proceeded to purchase three acres bordering the new Industrial Park located in Leitchfield, KY. On the newly purchased land, a 3000 square foot manufacturing facility was constructed. With the construction of the new facility, the name was changed from Rough River Metal Products to Mid-Park Metal Products.
In early 1984, Alan purchased Nelson’s portion of the company to become the sole proprietor of Mid-Park. With the purchase of the company, Alan began expansion of Mid-Park with the ambition to add new product lines and increase the size of Mid-Park’s operations.
In 1993, Mid-Park purchased an existing facility located in Clarkson, KY to go along with their current Facility in Leitchfield, KY to introduce a Guardrail and Guardrail Accessories Division. After extensive construction and remodeling, the new Mid-Park Facility in Clarkson, KY was up and running.
Today, Mid-Park has grown to include two facilities across Central Kentucky with numerous product lines to meet customer’s needs. The keys to Mid-Park’s success throughout the years lie with the dedication to give customers unsurpassed service and quality and to continually strive to improve all aspects of the business to remain an industry leader.
