The main office phone will remain in service during normal business hours of 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. EDT.  The main office phone number is +1-937-435-8659.

Prime Controls has been designated an essential business, as a manufacturer supplying to the food and beverage industry. However, for the safety of our employees, our production and shipping personnel will be operating on a limited schedule in compliance with the local government and the CDC’s recommendations. Therefore, while we typically strive to ship our products the same day the order is received, we will be moving to a once per week shipping schedule. Urgent orders will be expedited as needed.   

As we all continue to move forward in unfamiliar territory, we want to thank you for your continued business. Should anything change to the plans noted, we will let you know. 


All the best,
