Our History

Penn Manufacturing, Inc initially started in 1999 in Saxonburg, PA
by John Townsend and an Investor.

They primarily focused on pressure vessels and has been an ASME code certified shop since then. In 2007, the company relocated to a bigger facility located in Hyde Park, PA and expanded into Heat Exchangers and other types of fabricating services. In 2017, the Investor retired and John Townsend then become the President / Owner of the company (Penn Mfg Inc), he has since expanded fabrication operations & client machining services.

We generally run a primary shift from 6 AM to 2 PM each day (Monday thru Friday), but depending on client orders and deadlines, we will extend those daily hours as needed.

We will also work evening, 2nd and even 3rd shift if needed, in order to meet specific client deadlines or client production outages.

Basically – we can adjust our own work schedules to fit your production / delivery requirements.

Our “shop” currently has:

Two 15 ton overhead cranes, several JIB cranes, two air compressors (with an integrated air control system), over 15 welding machines (TIG and MIG), one large Plasma cutting table, several rolling machines, three CNC Machines (lathe & milling), an Arc Welder, four manual lathes, five manual drills, a large vertical mill, one large horizontal mill, three forklifts, four saws, three trucks, hauling trailer, and a variety of other fabricating & machining equipment.
