PPC Systems, Inc. was founded in 1993 as “Pneumatic Propulsion Controls” with Bill Mol as sole proprietor. Bill has been in the marine engineering field his entire career.

Shortly after starting his business, Bill began his association with Mathers Controls Inc., (now ZF Marine LLC) providing sales, service and repair work on propulsion control systems at their request.

In 1994 “Pneumatic Propulsion Controls” became involved in electronic propulsion control systems and began operating as “PPC”.

Paigè Logsdon became a partner in 1996 and took over the office and material handling functions enabling Bill to spend more time in the field. Paigè’s background at that time included 10 years at Lockheed Shipbuilding in Warehousing and Materiel Management and 10 years at Olin Aerospace in electronics inventory control, shipping, receiving and purchasing.

In January 2001 “PPC” incorporated and began operating as “PPC Systems, Inc.”.

After retiring from ZF Marine (formerly Mathers Controls) in 2007, Ted Lind joined PPC. Ted brings 3 years of experience in the commercial fishing industry as well as his 30 years of expertise from Mathers Controls / ZF Marine. He has proven to be an outstanding addition to our team.

In July 2013 Northway Products purchased the shaft brake and pneumatic division of the original Mathers line. We are pleased to begin our relationship with them providing Mathers quality products and service.

In May 2015 Casey McKinney joined the PPC team. As well as his ZF Marine and Northway/Mathers experience he comes aboard with training certification from Kobelt and Aventics (formerly Rexroth) and hands on knowledge of Kobelt steering systems and controllable pitch propeller systems. Casey is a valuable addition to PPC and brings his impressive background and fresh, young energy to the waterfront.
