JWF Industries Acquires Controlling Interest in PCI Manufacturing Solutions

Sulphur Springs, Texas – JWF Industries of Johnstown, Pennsylvania has acquired the controlling interest in PCI Manufacturing Solutions, LLC of Sulphur Springs, Texas from Resource West Inc. of Grand Junction, Colorado.

PCI Manufacturing Solutions develops and produces a product line for the oil and gas industry that includes a variety of liquid storage tanks, vacuum transports, belly/end dumps, Mobile Ponds, waste containers and skidded and vacuum mud tanks, as well as custom and specialized steel manufactured products.

“PCI is a great fit for JWF,” said John Polacek, Chief Operating Officer “Many of their products are similar to the products produced at our Environmental Tank & Container (ETC) facility in Johnstown. Both primarily serve the oil and gas industry. We think this will create a great deal of synergy between the two entities and enable us to market ETC’s patented products in the Southwest while, at the same time, be able to introduce some of PCI’s products to the Northeast. In addition, the new Texas location will also serve as a Southwest location for some of our defense and commercial customers.”

Polacek continued, “We’re pleased to become part of the Sulphur Springs community and we look forward to becoming more involved in the community. Community involvement has always been a hallmark at JWF. From the Polacek family to the employees on the shop floor, we all recognize the vital role we play in the community. We hope to replicate that same spirit here at PCI.”

Located approximately 75 miles east of Dallas, PCI operates in a 153,000 square foot facility and includes 75 employees.. The company has a combined manufacturing experience of over 100 years. Additional information on PCI Manufacturing Solutions can be found at www.texas.etctank.com/wordpress6.
