PACMIN HEADQUARTERS

PACMIN

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.

PACMIN STUDIO

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.
