Norm Arns Sr.

Educated in drafting, engineering, hydraulics, physics, and size reduction technologies, Norm set out to start PCI after working for various milling equipment manufacturers.


Our company began in 1980 with the experience and vision of Norm Arns Sr. Highly educated in particle size reduction equipment and processing systems, Norm set out to start his own company to provide for the growing need for custom processing services. From the start, Norm 's sons, Norm Jr. and Bill have been involved in the business in varying degrees, with Bill taking over full ownership in 2007. In recent years, the family tradition continues with Bill 's sons Jerry, John and Keith all contributing to operations at PCI. Our plant currently includes 5 separate processing areas, and is located in Albertville, MN, 35 miles northwest of Minneapolis.
