In 1912, William Baldridge opened a hardware and buggy shop in Parma. That original company’s heritage continues to this day in the name of Parma Company and Agri-lines. The legacy of Parma’s early businessmen is alive and well in the twenty-first century. In the last decade, an estimated 5 million dollars worth of business infrastructure improvements have been built within the Impact Area of Greater Parma. From state-of-the-art onion storage to new and remodeled agriculture equipment production facilities, a new pharmacy and dental offices, Parma is where growth is occurring. An award-winning school district anchors a thriving community with all services available.
The City of Parma itself is a compact and thriving metro-village, with shops, services, small restaurants, churches, a newspaper, several parks, and a great many opportunities for youth, senior citizens, and everyone in-between. Its distinctive placement at the junction of two rivers, the Union Pacific main line, US Highway 95, and 15 minutes from Interstate 84 render it ideal for growers, shippers, manufacturers, commuters, and travelers.
