President

Frank M. Costabile, PAC’s President, has 46 years of experience in the commercial and industrial laundry operations. Frank started repairing coin operated washers and dryers at the age of 12 years old with his father, Philip A. Costabile, for whom PAC is named.

After obtaining a degree in business, Frank, along with brothers Rocco and Phil, purchased and ran PAC Industries, which distributes commercial and industrial laundry equipment. At the time, PAC also operated a route operation for coin laundries.  Frank’s duties included installation and service of on-premise laundries (OPL) and all coin operated equipment.

Eventually PAC sold its route operation. Frank became more involved with the design and marketing of industrial laundry operations, always investigating the latest techniques available for effective and efficient industrial laundry facilities.  These duties also included direct involvement with the research and development engineering departments at the manufacturing level with field knowledge to assist in the final design of the laundry equipment being manufactured today.  Frank and his brothers built PAC Industries into a distribution company servicing six states with over 50 employees with quality sales, installation, service and parts, and refurbishing commercial and industrial laundry equipment. In 2009, the Costabile brothers formed an ESOP that created a 100% employee-owned company.

Frank has been involved with organizations such as the National Association of Laundry Managers, Pennsylvania Dry-cleaning Association, Coin Laundry Association, Textile Rental Services Association of America, and the Textile Care Allied Trades Association.

Rocco Costabile

Rocco Costabile

Director of Finance

Rocco, and his two brothers, Phil and Frank, purchased a small laundry business from their father Philip A. Costabile, and formed PAC Industries Partnership in 1972. In 1976, the company (PAC Industries, Inc.) became incorporated, with the partnership becoming a separate entity. With this in mind, PAC has now entered into their 39th year of sales and service of commercial and industrial laundry equipment.

Rocco’s duties as Chief Financial Officer were to oversee the accounts receivables and payables, as well as assist Phil with the banking activities. Being a small company, Rocco was able to be involved with service and installation of the coin operated, as well as small 'on premise laundry.’ At one point in his career, he managed 12 coin stores owned by Scotland Laundry Associates, of which PAC was a partner. In 1994, Rocco became president of PAC, as well as the managing partner in PAC Partnership. He has since relinquished his title of President to Frank Costabile. At present, Rocco is the Directoir of Finance for the company with emphasis on accounts payable and receivable, and a concentrated effort in assisting with coin operated equipment sales, while maintaining his position as managing the partnership.

Some of Rocco's activities outside of the company, are enjoying a good round of golf with pals, exercising, spending time with his wife, Marsha, and family in Hilton Head, S.C., and on occasion, riding his Harley.

"After 39 years of being part of PAC Industries, and the 'PAC Family', I can honestly say that I have not one regret. It has been a pleasure working for PAC, and especially working with all those wonderful people that have participated over the years."
