PCC operates two divisions—PCC Precision Interlining and Precision Textiles.

Sales in 2012 were $145 million and the company added capacity to help meet the demand for the growth in its filtration division and automotive market. According to Scott Tesser, president and CEO, “We saw steady growth amongst our three main divisions—auto, filtration and bedding,” says Tesser.
During the year, PCC invested in additional filtration capacity and says new technology will be launched in 2013.
PCC has 20 offices around the world outside of the U.S. and continues to grow globally. “We are beginning a strategy of bringing certain product to those markets,” says Tesser. “Currently those offices are selling apparel related nonwovens only.”
Tesser says dry air filtration continues to be a healthy growth area for PCC while the automotive business has also seen a significant increase in sales.
“For 2013 we are adding more high loft capacity and a new product we are calling air spun,” Tesser says.
