Our History

PPS has been serving the automotive, aerospace, and general manufacturing industries since 1991.

Originally, the mandate of the company was to provide chemical paint stripping services to custom coaters in the Southern Ontario Region.

In 1996 PPS began supplying one of the top OEM Automotive Manufacturing facilities and further growth followed quickly with the addition of Tier 1 and Tier 2 Automotive Suppliers. Today, PPS currently provides services to all but one of the OEM Automotive Manufacturing facilities in Ontario alongside their Tier 1 and Tier 2 suppliers.

Case Study

Service Provided

Process Bolt and Nut Cleaning

Problem

Process bolts/nuts used in the pre-assembly of the vehicle were removed and discarded.

Solution & Outcome

PPS was able to complete a process whereby the parts were safely cleaned of paint, and returned for re-use, providing a substantial cost savings to our customers. Our process produced such a quality finish that US customs maintained the bolts/nuts were a new, purchased product, not recycled.
