Order Pennsylvania Correctional Industries Products

If you are a non-profit or government agency, you can order products made by Pennsylvanians who are incarcerated.

Incarcerated individuals in Pennsylvania have the opportunity to work in Pennsylvania Correctional Industries (PCI), a bureau of the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections. PCI employees inmates to produce a variety of products that are available for sale to non-profit organizations and government entities in Pennsylvania.

By working in PCI, incarcerated individuals gain work experience and learn basic work skills that they can use to secure work upon reentry.

PCI is self-sustaining through the sale of PCI products and receives no money from the General Fund — which saves public tax dollars.

General Information

PCI operates under the state-use system—a system that inmates can produce goods and services only for consumption by governments and other tax-supported entities. New customers should contact PCI Customer Service to set up their customer account and to receive more information on the products and services that are best suited for them.


The price list from the catalog sections supersedes all previous price lists distributed by PCI. Prices are subject to change without notice, and some products and delivery services may involve additional charges.  To avoid any misunderstandings or delays in production, you are advised to contact your PCI Sales Representative or Customer Service at 717.425.7292. All PCI product and service prices represent fair market value when compared to similar products and services available commercially.

Shipping, Handling and Delivery Services

Many PCI products include standard UPS delivery. Oversize or heavy products and items shipped using common carriers are subject to added freight charges. Please note that additional shipping when it is required is noted in the product description. Many items in the services section of the catalog will designate whether shipping needs to be included. For shipping quotes on these products call your PCI Sales Representative.

Special crating, custom packaging, and installation services are available at an additional charge.

PCI standard delivery is to the receiving dock only. PCI offers inside delivery, unpacking, assembly, set-up and installation services at an additional charge. Please specify these services in advance. Charges will be quoted to you upon request.
