In 1954 Hideo ‘Pops’ Yoshimura started the Yoshimura company in Japan. Pops was trained as an airplane mechanic during the war and afterwards made quite a reputation working on motorcycles of servicemen stationed in Japan. Pops had quite a talent at modifying existing parts to make more power and although Pops worked on planes, cars, and all manner of other combustion engine powered vehicles, motorcycles were his first love. Yoshimura sadly passed away in 1995 but he left an indelible legacy as a master craftsman, tuner and fabricator and was one of the pioneering personalities of superbike racing. In 2000, he was inducted into the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame.

PSE is a forward thinking company with massive potential, on a worldwide basis. In an economic climate where many organisations are looking inward and reducing their market opportunities PSE continues to thrive and expand. GEN-3Glasscoat is PSE’s flagship ceramic paint protection product, which produces technically amazing levels of adhesion and cohesion, unparalleled in the automotive industry. The product really does help vehicles to maintain that ‘new car’ look. The glass-based coating provides incredible water-repellent (hydrophobic) properties to vehicle exteriors and a smoother surface on paintwork, which allows any dirt to be removed easily. In fact, the water-repellent coating has some self-cleaning properties, which can actually start to shed debris when it rains–certainly a benefit in the UK. Durable and long lasting, once correctly applied, the GEN-3Glasscost coating is stable and guaranteed for five years on vehicles of average mileage.
