Pollution Control is unique among companies today. Why? Because of our employees.
It is no accident that the average length of employee service at Pollution Control is 10 years and nearly half of those employees have been with the company for 15 years or more. The advantages of a group like this to management are many. An experienced and dedicated workforce means less mistakes and less downtime. It also means consistently higher quality products, satisfied customers and repeat business. Our sales, service, and factory staff are hardworking, intelligent, and detail-oriented. We believe that what is best for our customer is best for us all. Our employees understand this and they proudly share in the success of our company.
