Ronnie Parham, Owner/ President
After working in the maintenance department for two large corporations, Ronnie decided to buy a welding machine and after installing it on the back of his old Ford pickup. He struck out on his own to form Parham’s Welding. Working primarily on farming equipment and at the local hog farming operations, his reputation for quality workmanship grew. Soon he hired a helper and added a truck and the rest is history. In 1999, Ronnie incorporated the business and Parham’s Welding & Fabrication, Inc. was well on its way to becoming the thriving corporation it is today. With 20 employees, 9 mobile units, a 10,000 square foot fabrication shop, a full machine shop, burn table, bending machine, press brake and a large inventory of metal, Parham’s Welding can now service all businesses large and small.
In early 2019, Ronnie decided to retire and is enjoying his free time. He lives in Waverly with his wife Regina and youngest son Cameron. He enjoys hunting, fishing, golfing and his newest hobby, using his portable sawmill to turn logs into beautiful boards for building unique furniture. He is a member of Waverly Youth Hunt Club.
