P&W Industries, Origins and Growth

In 1972 Pathways Magazine ran a lengthy article about one of Covington's largest industries, P&W Industries. The salvage steel recycling plant was located on Jefferson Avenue where the new courthouse is today. In the years since this article appeared, the company has moved to La. Hwy. 59 south of Abita Springs.
