Pressure Spray Inc. (PCI) Saluted by Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber for Being in Business 40 Years!!!

40 yearsWow!  Forty Years. For some of us 1974 doesn’t seem soooo long ago! For others it’s so long ago that it’s hard for them to put it into perspective. When you start a business you don’t know what’s going to happen. You can believe in yourself and the people you’re surrounded with. You can believe in your products and services. You can believe in your strategy and go to market plan but you just can’t ever predict what’s around the corner. Forty years is a testament to everyone who was ever involved with PSI (customers & staff) to get us to this point. We’ve had our fair share of surprises around a whole bunch of corners but we’ve always found a way to keep going!  Here’s to another 40 years!!!
