About Us

Quote by Dr. Dale Rogers
History

Arthur KrantzPRC Industries was founded in 1996 by Arthur Krantz, an industry veteran and visionary who is regularly considered as one of the inventors of the process of remanufacturing consumer appliances. He is now Chairman of the Board of PRC Industries. For over two decades the management team at PRC has been servicing some of the world's leading consumer product manufacturers. 

 

Philosophy

PRC Industries is an industry leader in returned product management, return center services, remanufacturing, reprocessing, repairing and recycling of returned  industrial and consumer products. Instead of discarding millions of defective, damaged, and un-repairable returned products into America's overflowing landfills, which cost manufacturers millions of dollars to transport, process and dispose of annually, PRC developed environmentally conscious proprietary remanufacturing, reprocessing and recycling processes with the highest recovery rate of those very products without the use of new replacement parts.

Team Members

PRC employs factory trained engineers, technicians, machinists, assemblers, and material handlers and warehousing personnel, as well as a full staff of mechanical and electrical engineers who manage and operate the engineering and quality assurance departments.
