History of Perma-Chink Systems in Knoxville, TN.
Perma-Chink Systems was incorporated in 1981, in Redmond, Washington. Actual production of Perma-Chink was started in 1983, in a 5,000 sq. ft. facility on Prosser Road in Knoxville, TN. This small facility produced, warehoused, and shipped our first product, Perma-Chink, and had a total of three employees; one production and shipping worker, an office manager, and the main manager.
Before long, it was deemed undersized for storage of finished goods, raw materials, and other incidentals needed to produce our product. A large tent was rented to be able to store pails, chemicals, and other items outside to enable us to purchase in larger quantities to meet the needs of the industry. Before too long we realized that too was undersized and inefficient; so in 1987, we moved across the street into a 20,000 sq. ft. facility where all of our products are currently manufactured.
