Both Howard and Robert had owned their own hog operations, and Orville worked in the feed and poultry industry. Together, they bought a used school bus and built their own pressure washer system. They first started out by washing poultry and hog barns. As the need arose, they expanded to meet that need, adding a second bus and hiring additional staff. It wasn’t long before they needed a place to service and repair their units, so the brothers built a shop on the farm where the Pletts grew up.
As they continued manufacturing washing systems for themselves, local farmers and others in the agriculture industry took notice. They wanted to purchase these innovative systems as well, so PFP listened to their customers and expanded into the sales and service of electric motors, pressure washers, and parts.
Sometime later, Orville parted ways with PFP, and Cornellie and Irma joined their brothers in the business. PFP eventually purchased the Karcher Franchise, adding another well-known brand to their already impressive product line.
Upon receiving a terminal cancer diagnosis in 2019, Howard left the business, leaving his family at PFP with a desire to continue building those strong connections.
