Our History

Pascor Atlantic was originally founded in 1910 as R&IE in Greensburg, Pennsylvania. Our remarkable heritage engrained in us a passion for doing whatever it takes to manufacture a flawless product and the desire to go well-beyond what is expected to serve our customers. We are the successor company of some of the most recognized and respected names in the electrical industry. R&IE, ITE, Gould, BBC, and ABB each influenced the current products, designs, operating philosophy, and our commitment to ongoing service. This lineage provides the foundation of high standards that made Pascor Atlantic who we are today.
