PES (Product Evaluation Systems Inc.)

"First Commonwealth is out to help us in every way possible."

By: Walt Moorhead, President
PES (Product Evaluation Systems Inc.)

Our company has been in business since 1979 and has grown over the intervening years. Located in the outskirts of Latrobe, in Unity Township, PES (Product Evaluation Systems Inc.) is an independent testing laboratory specializing in mechanical, metallurgical, chemical and nondestructive testing and analysis.

From our first day of business, PES has been proud to offer exceptional personalized response to customer needs. The company includes a strong cadre of core personnel with 20-40 years of individual experience in machining and testing and metallurgical evaluation.

Just over 10 years ago, the company was struggling financially. First Commonwealth was the only local bank willing to work with us through our "rough" times. Our business banker personally worked with our accountant to make things happen - it didn’t happen overnight. First Commonwealth’s relationship has helped finance 100% of our capital equipment purchases, averaging more than $175,000.00 per year. We have since been able to grow to be a diversified Independent test lab serving Steel, Mining, Rail, Tractor Trailer, Power Generation, Petrochemical and Oil/Gas markets.

PES Inc. and First Commonwealth have developed a solid relationship. Many businesses lose sight of the importance of relationships - you can’t be treated as a "number" and expect to excel the way PES has. Our business banker meets with us regularly to make sure things are in order - they’re out to help in every way possible by being caring, responsible and committed.
