PCI was established in 1986 by Alan Ester and has remained a family owned and operated company ever since. Alan’s oldest son, Adam Ester began working in the shop in 1998 and has been a part of all aspects of the company over the last 20 years. After leading the business for over 30 years, Alan retired, and Adam has taken over the company as the President. Adam has a wonderful team working with him, some who have been with the company for over 18 years.
PCI is a leading manufacturer of Certified Passive Fire Protection, taking great pride in the customization, design and installation of products globally, both Onshore and Offshore. Our product line also includes Industrial Insulation and Heat Tracing, lead by our experienced team. In addition to these products, we are happy to work with our customers for specific custom needs as well. We have even gone as far as constructing fully submersible PFP Jackets on an FPSO’s quick disconnect riser lines to fire and blast protection corridors for platform life boats.
"Great things in business are never done by one person. They're done by a team of people. I am fortunate to have a staff working alongside me that is more like family. We collaborate work together to ensure each of our customers needs are met and lasting impressions are made"
