About Us

Performance Controls, Inc. (PCI) designs and manufactures power amplifiers for demanding applications. PCI supports many industries, including electric vehicles, test and measurement, high speed rotational tools, military positioning systems and MRIs – any equipment that requires reliable, high-performance power control. We offer a range of standard products and we customize solutions for specific needs.

Our gradient amplifier family is an excellent example of PCI skills applied to a demanding application: controlling the magnets which produce high resolution MRI images for patient diagnosis. These skills come from successful experience enabling high power, low noise, broad bandwidth performance while achieving the certifications necessary for medical devices. We apply these skills acquired from more than 300 man-years of innovative design experience to benefit our clients in a broad range of industrial, research and medical applications.

As a manufacturer, Performance Controls has an excellent track record of global supply chain management, on-time delivery and customer service support. We are not satisfied until our customers are delighted.

Since 1981 PCI has been partnering with OEMs to design and manufacture high performance power control products. Our core offering, however, is the creativity, experience and dedication of engineering, manufacturing and service professionals who love to solve problems for customers. We are located in Montgomeryville, Pennsylvania (about 45 minutes north of Philadelphia International Airport) in a modern 45,000 square foot (4,200 square meter) facility.
