Plastics Extrusion Machinery Inc. (PEM) was founded in 1978 by former owner, Hal Wright, and grew to be one of the leading providers of quality downstream equipment in the PVC pipe and profile industries. The dedication and commitment to quality demonstrated by its employees is what made PEM equipment the sought-after equipment over the past four decades.
Today, that dedication and commitment to quality is as strong as ever!
In December 2017, Nathan Spearman – having more than 15 years in the plastics industry – purchased PEM LLC with a vision to take the company and its quality equipment to the next level in excellence through improving processes, resources, hiring highly-skilled employees, improving customer support, and innovating our products for greater efficiency and profitability.
Seeing the need to strengthen its product offering and expertise in the industry, Spearman earned an opportunity to acquire an exceptional company trusted in the industry, Advance Equipment Company LLC (AEC).
AEC was founded -- also in 1978 -- by Richard E. Hoverter and later handed down to his son, Richard (Dick) L. Hoverter. AEC is located in Tumwater, Washington and focuses on providing small diameter downstream equipment as a valued division of PEM LLC.
Together, PEM and AEC proudly celebrate 40 years of success serving the PVC pipe and profile industries. We have a combined commitment to the industry to innovate, serve and support our customers by providing … The Next Generation of Innovative Downstream Equipment.
