Product Recovery Management (PRM)

PRM is an Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) of Pollution Control and other equipment, mainly focused on the Remediation and Landfill Industries. Our experience and talent are well diversified. PRM does not practice engineering. For the most part, PRMs client base consists of Engineering Consulting companies across North America. These companies provide the engineering specifications and certifications (seals and reviews) for the projects and PRM implements them. In certain cases, our clients may ask us to provide equipment that has Third Party Professional Engineer reviews and stamps. PRM always hires Third Party Engineers to perform these services as we are not a registered engineering company.

Product Recovery Management, Inc. (PRM) was founded in 1990 and is owned by Robert M. Phillips, Jr. (Mel), President and Brian J. Phillips, Vice President. The company was a subsidiary of Phillips Electric Co. of Durham, Inc. and was incorporated after the Phillips brothers purchased the company from their parents. What started as an electrical contracting business in 1976 has merged into a well established environmental remediation and landfill gas company with over 38 years of history and experience.

Phillips Electric Company of Durham, Inc. was incorporated by us Bob and Joyce Phillips in Oct 1977. PEC operated as a local electrical contracting firm specializing in residential and commercial wiring with Bob handling the actual electrical operation while I was responsible for secretarial. In the late 80′s, PEC was fortunate enough to not only wire service stations for a local Petroleum Marketer but also addressed the underground storage tank gas spill issues. PRM become a subsidiary of PEC after a huge gas spill was threatening a small creek bed near Hillsborough, NC. Product Recovery Management met the challenge and prevented a major contamination of the local drinking water.
