Nothing Sticks to Us

There’s nothing worse than making chocolate chip cookies and having them stick to the tray. It’s one of those kitchen nightmares that leads to sad faces and a trip to the store for a new pan. Now, just imagine if you had to make tens of thousands of baked goods a day, leaving half of your product stuck to trays and pans would yield more than just a few tears. To avoid these kinds of headaches, top bakery plants need to rely on a non-stick coating that will get it right every time. It just so happens that at PCM we have the coating systems more large scale bakers use to keep their investors smiling: The BCS Coatings featuring DuPont Non-Stick Coating Technology.

At PCM we had to pass a lot of tests and inspections to become the Eastern US licensee of BCS. DuPont is extremely picky about whom they let sell their products. We’d love to list all the companies that get their coatings from us, be we can’t, not because they’re not proud to work with us, but because they don’t want to give away the secret to their success.  BCS Coatings are that effective -they offer that much of a competitive advantage. These custom coatings cut costs and last up to 12 times longer than silicone glazes.

Even though we can’t give you names, trust us: they’re big. In fact, there’s a good chance that if you’ve eaten a fast food burger bun, frozen waffle, or piece of bread recently, you had a product that was created with the help of BCS. There are over 1,000 commercial bakery lines around the world that use 1,800,000 coated pans and straps to process more than 40,000 tons of dough each day. That’s a lot of bread and a lot of…well…bread.

PCM: Celebrating 50 Years of Innovation

Over the past 50 years, PCM has become a world leader in Teflon® and other non-stick coatings. When we began, PCM was about offering solutions. Companies in the food, chemical, printing and pharmaceutical industries came to us when they needed answers, when they wanted to learn how to take advantage of the latest non-stick coating technologies. After a short time, we came across a rather unique problem: no one could translate our exacting and innovative ideas into reality. There just wasn’t a manufacturer who had the experience, facilities or skill to get the job done right. Our solution? Do it all ourselves. It’s the bold step that made us who we are today. PCM became, and still is, a company that can take its clients from idea, to prototype, to full scale production run, all with a high-level of personalized customer service.  Our corrosion and chemical resistant Teflon®, Halar, and Kynar coatings protect our clients’ most valuable equipment while increasing productivity and decreasing costs.

Our commitment to innovation and unequaled quality has allowed us to grow from a “one man and a desk” operation, to 50 highly trained and efficient non-stick coating experts. Unlike other companies, we’ve expanded without losing touch with our roots. And while we have grown quite a bit, we’ve been at 1435 Ferry Avenue since day one. Some of our employees are 2nd and 3rd generation and many of our clients have been with us for years. We may be a ground-breaking, state-of-the-art industry leader who has doubled our manufacturing capacities since 2008, but we also know something about old-fashioned loyalty, customer service, and hard work.

As we celebrate our 50th year as a world-wide leader in non-stick coating and lining technologies, everyone at PCM is proud of our past, our present and our future. Keep checking this blog to learn about how we are changing the world of non-stick coatings one innovation at a time.
