Packaged homes are not a new concept
Pacific Homes, was founded in 1906 in Los Angeles, California....but is not related to PMHI. Sears, Roebuck & Co. were the leaders in America from 1908 to 1940. Many of these early "kit homes" are now historical landmarks all across America.
In June of 1968, Pacific Modules, Inc. (PMI) was incorporated. Along with a sister company, Pacific Buildings, Inc. (PBI) in Marks, MS, both PMI and PBI were involved in building houses utilizing their packages in their respective areas as General Contractors.
In October 1973, the corporate name was changed to Pacific Modern Homes, Inc. By 1980, PMHI ceased being a General Contractor and concentrated on only being a manufacturer and supplier to general contractors, developers and owner-builders through a network of representatives and dealers.
In 1990, PMHI began exporting packages. The Pacific Building System has been used in projects in Belarus, Russia, Kazakhstan, Ukraine, France, Mexico, Korea, Japan, Lebanon, and China. We also class shipments to Alaska and Hawaii as "export" as they involve shipment by containers. In addition to supplying home building materials, PMHI has supplied equipment for local production of wall panels and roof trusses, construction supervision, and site planning.
