About Us



“Our Clients out-of-the-box experience is our highest priority”
Matias Perel, CEO & President


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.


Arthur Krantz
Founder and Chairman of the Board

 Kevin O'Boyle


PRC began nearly twenty years ago under the vision of Founder and CEO Arthur Krantz. Since the beginning, Krantz's interest in the environment has been a major influence of his mission as an entrepreneur. Already a success in the close-out business, Krantz began work to develop a broader, more efficient means of recycling durable consumer goods.

Arthur Krantz and PRC engineers developed a new method of recycling whereby returned products could be "re-manufactured " into high quality market alternatives available throughout North America. In the past 15 years, PRC and its partners have pioneered and revolutionized the remanufacturing industry.
