Our Founder & President: Clair Eitel

PVC Tech is proudly helmed by its founder and president, Clair Eitel.  A native of the Czech Republic, Clair migrated from Europe to New Jersey in 1962.  He later moved to California, continuing his education in Long Beach State and UCLA, earning a BA/MA double degree in Mathematics and French.

In 1964, while originally having aspired to work in academia, part-time work with K.C. Products eventually led to a career change that had Clair focusing on the plastics industry instead.  By 1974, Clair joined Goss Plastic Film Corp and eventually built the business into one of the largest PVC film distributors in the US, with exclusive representation for VKW-Staufen (ICI/EVC) of Germany.

After earning his Executive Master of Business Degree from UCLA in 1981, Clair was named President & CEO of Goss Plastic Film Corp the following year.  After five years of leading Goss, Clair sold his interest to a private investment group and decided to start PVC Tech.

Now, with over 50 years in the industry, Clair’s experience forms the backbone of our company.  As its architect and builder, his driving sense of quality and his ideals for providing the best materials at the best price has time after time gained customer loyalty and allowed us to forge the PVC Tech difference.
