Our Story

About PS Industries™ Incorporated

We are now PS Industries™ Incorporated

On December 3, 2018, we officially changed our name from Production Specialties Corporation (DBA PS DOORS) to PS Industries™ Incorporated.

As our company has evolved from being a manufacturer of high-quality industrial doors to one that also produces safety/fall-protection products and flood barriers, we now had a name that reflected our wide breadth of product offerings. It will be business as usual under the same ownership and the same quality of service you’ve come to know and trust. Our new name will allow for broader possibilities in the future.

Our History

Doors are all about transitions. They allow us to control the passage of everything that enters and exists or lives and our businesses – from people to weather, from vehicles to floodwaters. In short, doors are simply too important to entrust to just anybody. The very best doors are reinforced with confidence at their core, and this is what PS Industries does best.

Originally established in 1974 as a full-service door distributor repairing and supplying industrial doors, we had the opportunity to work with many door manufacturers and gain firsthand knowledge of what worked and what didn’t in the door industry, along with the challenges in the field that our customers faced. In the late 1970s, we began developing improved door-related products designed and manufactured specifically to excel in high draft (pressure) applications and highly abusive industrial environments. Thus, the PS Sliding Door was born. Soon after we developed an industrial Swing Door, a horizontal Sliding Roof Hatch, an Access/Inspection Hatch, our industrial air control Ventilation Louver system and much more. All of these products are custom fabricated specifically to our customer’s size and design requirements. These products fall under our PS Access Solutions™ brand.

As our company continued to grow, we developed a new brand: PS Safety Access™. This product line started with our patented SafeMezz™ Vertical Gate, designed to provide fall protection while allowing customers to take advantage of improved efficiently in their material handling. More safety-related products soon followed, including one of our most popular products, the Ladder Safety Gate. Currently, the PS Safety Access brand manufacturers 13 safety-related products designed and engineered to provide personnel fall protection.

In the early 1980s, we were asked to design a water-tight flood protection barrier for a lift station. We applied our knowledge of custom manufacturing and rugged design to develop our first flood barrier product, the Lift-Out Flood Barrier. We continued to manufacture custom flood barriers upon request and eventually we made the decision to develop the PS Flood Barriers™ brand. The keys to the development of this brand were innovative design, solid engineering and high quality manufacturing standards. Today, we have 18 flood barrier products to protect facilities, critical infrastructure and assets from devastating flooding. Two of our flood barrier products, the Pedestrian Flood Door (PD-520) and the HydroDefense™ Flood Plank (FP-530FM), have undergone third-party testing and certification and now carry the “FM Approved” Label.

At PS Industries, our mission is to provide “products that protect people and property.” We strive to exceed the expectations of our customers, our suppliers, our competition and our employees. The down and dirty of it is, we are innovative, honorable, knowledgeable, and excited to solve each customer’s problems.

We work with great customers every day, like NASA, the United Nations, Miller-Coors, Con Edison, Grainger, Xcel Energy, the New York City Transit Authority and thousands of others. How do we do it? We follow the “PS Industries Way.” This guides us on every interaction with our customers, imparting a proven method for providing the correct solution to the customer’s problem or needs.

OUR BRANDS

Each of the PS Industries brands serves a unique customer base. The story behind each brand helps to define our commitment and provides a guiding purpose for why we come to work every day and do what we do. It will be our pleasure to exceed your expectations.

Just like everything else in industry, each door has its own important job. That’s why each sale is so much more than just a one-time event. Instead, it’s a process, one that begins with proper planning and continues with ongoing support. These long–term relationships are what set us apart.

Simply put, our safety products are built to ensure that users get to go home each and every night after their work is done. These gates provide barriers against the everyday workplace dangers that can injure good people and hinder productivity. A safe worker is a better worker, and our products prove it.

We learned about the incredible power of water firsthand during the Red River’s devastating flood of 1997. We’ve put those lessons to good use, and the resulting flood doors and barriers are much more than just protection against water, they are protection against fear. This allows our customers to do business with confidence, which, in turn, allows them to thrive.

We exist to be involved at every step of the project, from start to finish, through thick and thin.

We exist so everyone gets to go home at night.

We exist so communities do not have to experience what Grand Forks faced in 1997.
