Prime Coatings, Inc. has been in the industrial coatings business for over 30 years. Originally operating under the name Ricarla Co., in 1985 Rich Capolupo started off sandblasting and painting boats, buildings and steel framing, and more. In 1992, Rich incorporated the business under Prime Coatings, and began his journey in the rapid-deployment industrial coatings and maintenance sector. His now-superintendent Jerry Norton joined the team, while Madeleine Arcovio handled much of the administrative burden. Shortly thereafter, now-superintendent Dale Griffin came on board, and the rest is history.

Through the painstaking and tireless efforts of these employees, and many additions along the way, Prime Coatings, Inc. built itself into an industry leader in industrial coatings and highway maintenance throughout Massachusetts and New Hampshire. Prime Coatings, Inc. cut its teeth in the coatings world, with vast experience field cleaning and painting standing and elevated water tanks, highway overpasses, truss bridges spanning waterways, and much more. Over the last decade, PCI has leveraged its talented crews and technical prowess by diversifying into other related fields, including suspended platform installations, concrete coatings application, bridge cleaning and maintenance, temporary traffic control, remote highway brush clearing, and selective roadway sweeping.
