Who We Are

Inspired by our clients.

Driven to excel.

While PSSC Labs has been in business for more than 30 years, we’re more focused on how dedicated and knowledgeable our current associates are. Our commitment to you is more about our future together than on how long our company has been in business. More than most industries, ours moves fast…and continues to accelerate innovation.

How does this impact who we are?

We’re STUDENTS.

…and employ people who are curious and adaptable.

We’re PRINCIPLED.

…and seek those who recommend and deliver what’s best for our customers, not necessarily what’s best for us.

We’re PASSIONATE.

…committed to the larger vision our customers hold for a better world.
