PCH was founded in 1996 by Liam Casey. The company is named after the Pacific Coast Highway in Southern California; one of the most visually stunning roads on the planet, close to the heart of one of the most dynamic regions in the world; Silicon Valley.
PCH started as a small sourcing company and in just a few years we had evolved far beyond merely importing products; we were learning what the world's best companies wanted to build and we created the connections to make it happen. PCH disrupted traditional supply chains, enabled global commerce in spite of tough economic times, and dramatically shortened the time-to-market for products. We are the partner behind-the-scenes responsible for some of the most successful consumer electronics accessories launches. PCH has become the enabler, turning an idea into a physical product in the hands of a consumer while optimizing quality, cost, and time-to-market for our clients.
We have grown from a one-person startup to a global company with 5,000 people and 16 nationalities.
