PEOPLE

Making the lives of our customers, and our employees, better.

Our family is more than just blood.  Every employee, every vendor, and every customer are a part of the PESCO family.  When we bring someone into our family, we look for people and companies who share our values of Integrity, Mutual Respect & Trust, and Commitment to Excellence, whether it is an employee, a vendor, or a customer.  We have learned that working with people you trust makes life a lot easier.

Our business is built on relationships.  The relationships we have with the people who work with us are the bedrock of our values.  Our customers know we will do what we say we will do.  We will never compromise our standards when challenged; our relationships are too important to us to let a short-term problem affect our long-term relationships.  When you value something as an organization, it is the most important thing.  We value our relationships at PESCO.  They are our most important thing.

What does this mean for you, our customer?  We will manufacture the best equipment available in our industry to meet your needs.  We will always tell you the truth.  If there is a problem, we will let you know and work with you to resolve it.  We will deliver on-time, within the budget.  We know we are a small part of a larger mission for your organization, and we want to ensure we are doing everything in our power to meet your equipment needs.  Just let us know what you need, and we’ll take care of it for you!

Our mission is to make the lives of our customers easier, and the lives of our employees better.  We hope you choose to become a part of the PESCO family.
