HISTORY & SAFETY
In 1960, Jupiter PCC was founded by George and Joyce Tsourous as a protective coatings specialist. In the 1980s, Jupiter PCC expanded from its local presence to perform projects in Massachusetts, Connecticut, Maine, Louisiana, Colorado, Montana and Wyoming. Today, Jupiter PCC remains a mainstay throughout the Mid-Atlantic Region with a majority of its work being performed in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware. Now led by the founders' son, Paul Tsourous, Jupiter PCC continues its superior reputation in the industrial painting industry, while expanding its breadth of expertise to structural steel rehabilitation services.
Jupiter PCC's notable jobs include rehabilitation and painting of the Ben Franklin, Walt Whitman, Commodore Barry, Strawberry Mansion and Betsy Ross Bridges, as well as structural steel installation and repair at Drexel University dormitories, Urban Outfitters Headquarters, Comcast Center, Tweeter Center (now BB&T Pavilion), Wachovia Center (now Wells Fargo Center) and Harrah's Resort & Casino. Jupiter PCC has received numerous accolades, including the 2010 Construction Management Association of America Project of the Year for the Walt Whitman Bridge.
Our firm is dedicated to securing excellence in project performance. Effectively, we strive for productivity, while never losing sight of employee concerns and safety. It is integral in our project operations to respect air, water, soil and public concerns. We are confident that striving for these goals will strengthen the foundation of Jupiter PCC.
