jim-tschimperleJim Tschimperle / Pacific Machine Inc.

Pacific Machine Shop was established in 1912. I became the 4th owner in October of 1985 and it became Pacific Machine Inc. and just started 32nd year of ownership. At the time of purchase the business was located in Tacoma on the Theo Foss Waterway in a 1,600sq ft. building with 3 employees.


In 1988 we relocated to a 5,000sq/ft. building a mile from Foss Waterway location. As our business grew we continually expanded our manufacturing space to 10,000sq/ft.  and it 2014 moved to our present 20,000sq/ft. facility. We have continually changed and evolved as our customer base and needs have changed thru the our purchasing automated equipment and computer software to run our machines and operate our business.


Our business is based on the following principals:

We are committed to continually strive for excellence in providing a quality product and service to our customers.  To continually improve our skills as craftsmen to the highest possible levels.

Our integrity, excellent quality and exceptional service to our customers will continue to the foundation of our future.
