As of 1st April 2019, PCA joined the ADM Systems group of companies. You can download the formal letter by clickiing on the below link to navigate to the artilce on the ADM website:
PCA was founded in Sydney in 1968 by Adrian Smith, who believed that a large proportion of industrial breakdown time could be avoided with the implementation of [the then very new] solid-state electronic technology.
As the proliferation of electronic components grew, Mr. Smith saw that rotary shaft encoders would gain much wider application and would complement PCA’s existing range of input transducers. In 1981 PCA commenced assembly in Australia of several the Hohner Germany and later Hohner UK products.
Since that time PCA has made thousands of incremental encoders for Australian machinery. PCA has continued to provide 'off the shelf' and bespoke encoder solutions for a variety of industrial applications.
PCA’s well considered product range and expertise is a perfect fit with ADM’s existing process data, control, and automation products; which will allow ADM to enhance our comprehensive service offering to customers involved in process and industrial automation, and to machine builders.
Existing customers will find no noticeable changes to PCA’s service and product offering as result of the integration - as Jill and Adrian remain the Heart and Soul of PCA - although we are looking to grow the PCA/ADM team in the near future.
The integration of PCA into the ADM Systems Group will result in a synergy that benefits both PCA and ADM customers, with the added benefit of technical sales staff and support now in VIC, QLD, WA and NSW.
