Our Story Starts with American Manufacturing.

MakeTime founder and CEO, Drura Parrish, is a third generation manufacturer from Western Kentucky.

In the beginning...

Growing up just as U.S. manufacturing started to decline, Drura witnessed first-hand the repercussions on his family’s business and the workers they employed. When he finished his education, he found his niche in digital fabrication, making objects and parts for companies on the same machines his family’s business used, the same machines that made parts for cars and planes — CNC machines. 

But he didn’t buy any machines. Instead, he invested in local shops, renting out blocks of time on their machines to match with manufacturers who needed it. What started out as a side gig became a full time one, and as it did, one thing became very clear: Manufacturers had no visibility into the idle capacity that was literally all around them. They sent parts overseas when there were qualified machine shops only a few miles up the road that could deliver the same parts. 

Parrish continued as the matchmaker, tracking it all by hand. One day, as he furiously scribbled his next match, a friend asked him if he’d ever heard of the internet. The idea for MakeTime was born and launched to the public in November of 2014.

The State Of Kentucky

Today, MakeTime employs over 50 people in Lexington, KY in the heartland of American manufacturing. 

Everyday, our team works to solve, streamline and simplify CNC machining production. By keeping it easy for manufacturers to get parts from U.S. machine shops, we’re making it easy to keep manufacturing in America.
