PFS-Teco Posts Job Listing for Technical Director




PFS Corporation was chartered in 1959 as Plywood Fabricator Service, a nonprofit plywood quality control agency. It expanded its scope in 1972 as a complete third party independent quality control service to include plan review and inspection services for the housing industry, and we changed our name to Product Fabrication Service and moved our company from Tacoma, Washington to Madison, Wisconsin. In 1978, PFS Corporation was formed, and we expanded our scope of services to include testing, inspection, and certification of heating and cooling appliances (gas, oil, and solid fuel).
