Our Founder – Joseph Saks
Joseph Saks was a company man, working for decades as an electrical engineer for Gries Reproducer (now Dynacast). In 1962, he founded Product Components Corporation (PCC) – and became a Renaissance Man and a visionary. From his tiny storefront in Hastings on the Hudson, NY, Joe developed a novel concept: while most suppliers focused on large orders for even larger corporations, Saks decided on a more egalitarian approach – selling smaller quantities to even smaller companies, so they could compete with the big boys.
The idea worked, and PCC grew enough to enable a move to larger headquarters in Mt. Vernon, NY, in 1970. But even as the company grew, its core principles – competitive pricing, quick turnaround AND comprehensive, interpersonal customer service – were not compromised. Sadly, Joe Saks succumbed to heart failure in 1978 – but PCC remained a family affair, with his daughter Susan moving the company to Martinez, CA (near Berkeley) and running it until her death in January 2021. A third generation, Joe's grandson Scott, will assume ownership of the company in Spring 2021.
PCC prides itself on remaining family owned, and is also proud of its loyal customers – realizing that a successful business is always a two-way street.
For more than 50 years, PCC has continued to navigate the ever-changing landscape of every kind of industry, adapting and evolving to cater to the needs of companies large and – of course – small. Through his late daughter, his grandson, the company's employees, and their continued follow-through on his high standards - Joe Saks’ vision lives on.
Susan Lenz – Owner, 1986-2021
Susan took over PCC from her mother Mildred in 1986, moving the company from New York to California. Sadly, Susan died from Covid-19 complications on January 9, 2021. She is survived by two children, four grandchildren, her husband, and many cousins around the world. She will be missed by all of her friends, family, employees and customers.
