 TESTIMONIALS

"I enjoyed my experience as an intern at Parkway Plastics
and appreciate the amount of growth that resulted from the experience. 
I learned a great deal and met an incredible group of workers 
who make it possible for people to get jars all around the world. 
Overall, I am glad and thankful that I was able to work as a 
SolidWorks intern at Parkway Plastics."Karl T, NJIT Class of 2019
 

_______________________ 

"​I enjoyed my time at Parkway Plastics greatly. ... It is satisfying to know that my hard work
will most likely be used, as parts will be fabricated from the drawings that I have created. Anytime
I had questions about tolerances and certain features of parts, I always received a helpful answer.
In addition, the wide array of machines in the machine shop at Parkway allowed me to ask questions
about them and expand my understanding of parts manufacture, an important part of the engineering world. 

 ... The close proximity to Rutgers Busch Campus was convenient, it allowed me to continue
different responsibilities after work hours easily. Being part of the Rutgers Formula Racing team
requires me to usually be around Busch campus in the evenings so the quick 7 minute drive was
no issue. The knowledge I obtained using SolidWorks directly helps me with the team. Having to
model interesting shapes for some of the different components gave me new and deeper knowledge
of SolidWorks, allowing me to use my time with the software more efficiently. 

 ... ​It was a special feeling knowing that the jars Parkway Plastics makes are used in many different
industries by a vast amount of people. I will definitely lookout for the Parkway Plastics logo on jars in the future." - Chris G, Rutgers' Class of 2019
