For seventy years we have served the aviation and aerospace industries, providing visually dynamic marketing solutions to our customers.
Our rich history reaches back to the era of classic prop driven transports of the 1940s and extends to today’s advanced aircraft. Throughout the years we have worked closely with our customers, delivering stunning desktop and exhibit models, dynamic graphics, and promotional solutions that enhance their key business relationships.
PacMin is a creative community of talented individuals located in three manufacturing facilities complemented by three satellite sales offices.
Our team works together with you to take your ideas, visions, and imagination and turns them into reality as a beautiful desktop aircraft model, a fine art painting, or an exhibit for your upcoming trade show or product rollout.
Our core competencies include prototyping, tooling, molding, preparation, painting, customizing, graphics, printing, customer service, and a dedication to bringing your vision to life.
At PacMin, we embrace change and new challenges. We are continually investing in our team members and the latest in technologies and processes in order to be a strategic partner you can count on.
Pacific Miniatures and PacMin Studio is headquartered in sunny California with a satellite sales office in New York and two international facilities.
The 36,500 sq/ft Compound is a community in itself. Acquired by PacMin in 1995, this state-of the art facility integrates “Lean Manufacturing” protocols to increase efficiency, optimizing workflow and decrease waste.
PacMin is well familiar with the operational advantages a clean and organized factory environment offers. That’s why each department implements what is known as 5S methodology, which represents the Five S Pillars: Sort, Set in Order, Shine, Standardize, and Sustain is designed to streamline the over-all production environment. In addition to affording a positive workspace for our employees, The 5S methodology virtually diminishes any risk of contamination and imperfections on the models.
Formally established in 2014, we design highly customized marketing tools that can be seamlessly incorporated into existing marketing campaigns or used as event showstoppers.
Although we began in 1946 focused on aviation and aerospace, today we have expanded our horizons and repertoire to include medical, energy and more.
Our customers have challenged us to design spectacular dioramas, immersive exhibitions and massive displays.
Like most manufacturing operations, PacMin has capability-specific departments configured in correlation with each respective function. One Example would be our paint department and paint booth that comply with all local and state regulations.
Everything about the PacMin facility is precision engineered. This includes the model customization department, which is comprised of PacMin-designed and built workstations that incorporate proper lighting and tools for each particular aspect of production.
PacMin helps design and builds the Heart sculptures. They are then decorated by artists for the Foundation and put on display at the annual Heart Walk in Downtown Fullerton. The hearts are later sold to individual collectors and the monies are used for art education for elementary school children.
The ISTAT Foundation was created in 1994 to provide funds for scholarships, educational programs and grants to qualified individuals and institutions that promote the advancement of commercial aviation and humanitarianism.
PacMin supports this effort to raise funds for medicine and personnel to eradicate polio from the planet. As part of this effort, the Fullerton Rotary Club also hosts an annual Jog-A-Thon.
