A simple plaque has adorned Jerry Pritchett’s wall from the day our business began which states “We sell Performance. Do what you say you’re going to do!” This message is the embodiment of how we wish for our clients to view us – as a respected and trustworthy partner that consistently delivers results.
In 2005, Jerry Pritchett successfully negotiated the purchase of Invensys’ equity position in Invensys-Pritchett. In all of these name changes, Pritchett was the one constant and so the new name, Pritchett Controls, Inc., seemed both new and familiar at the same time. Immediately after completing the acquisition in 2005, Jerry began the process of establishing an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP). Jerry’s desire to establish the ESOP was fueled by his goal to perpetuate the business and to reward the Company’s employees for their contributions to its’ continuing success. In 2007, the ESOP Trust was legally established and our ownership structure has become a truly differentiating characteristic of our Company. Every company vehicle proudly bears our “Employee-Owned. Employee-Powered.” logo.
In the past decade, Pritchett Controls has enjoyed truly dramatic growth throughout the geography that we serve. In order to establish operational bases closer to key customers, the Company opened a branch office in Salisbury, MD in 2006 and a second branch office in Manassas, VA in 2008.
