Celebrating 25 Years
The team here at Porcher Abrasive Coatings Ltd would like to thank everyone who has helped make the company’s first quarter century so special.
This year at Porcher Abrasive Coatings Ltd (PAC) we have good reason to celebrate as the company has reached its 25th Anniversary. We have earned our reputation as the leading experts in the world of Abrasive Coatings.
This is an amazing milestone for the company and its loyal employees, many of whom have over 15 years’ service with Porcher.
Set up 25 years ago, Porcher Abrasive Coatings Ltd passed the quarter century benchmark in a strong position. Celebrating their own quarter century innings are employees Brian Butler and Mick Thompson both being with the company since its inception – joining them with long service achievements are Mark Goddard, Workshop Supervisor clocking up an amazing 23 years so far and Yvonne Smith the Office Manager with 16 years under her belt.
Edward Porcher, company founder and Managing Director, reflected on the company’s legacy and attributed much of the brands success to the extensive knowledge and expertise it offers working alongside prestigious manufacturers particularly but not exclusively in the food preparation industry.
Edward said: “I’m really pleased that the company we set up 25 years ago is in such a position of strength today – but Porcher Abrasive Coatings longevity is far from a personal achievement. There is a fantastic team working at PAC, but I also want to thank the company’s industry partners, suppliers, and, in particular customers who have all played important parts in our story”.
“All of our manufacturing is done on the premises here in Boston, Lincolnshire which gives us the benefit of overseeing every step in the process, this is backed with quality assurance and attention to detail through finite checking before being sent to the customer. Our coatings and linings are of the highest standards and unbeatable quality which is a major factor in our success” said Edward. “Our goal for the next 25 years is to stay at the forefront of the industry and to continue working and listening to our partners needs whilst offering them outstanding customer service”.
With proven expertise in many manufacturing sectors including the food preparation industry Porcher are also experts in abrasive vegetable peelers.
