PACMIN HEADQUARTERS

PACMIN

Pacific Miniatures and PacMin Studio is a creative community of talented individuals headquartered in sunny Fullerton, California with two satellite sales offices in New York and Arizona and two international manufacturing facilities.

With over 36,500 sq/ft of creative space, 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. It is designed to streamline the overall production environment. In addition to affording a positive workspace for our employees, the 5S methodology diminishes risk of contamination and imperfections on our models and custom exhibits.

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. PacMin Studio’s capabilities also include CG imagery and videos, 3D rendering services, 3D projection, and more.

IT'S ALL IN THE DETAILS

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 government regulations.

Everything about the PacMin facility is precision engineered. This includes the customization department, which is comprised of PacMin-designed and built workstations that incorporate proper lighting and tools for each particular aspect of production.
