Pacifica Services, Inc. (Pacifica) is a privately owned Hispanic business headquartered in Pasadena, California and is one of the premiere firms in Southern California providing full-service construction, program, and project management, engineering, construction support, and environmental services today.
For over 40 years, the public and private sector have turned to Pacifica for their professional service needs in the markets of education, energy, environmental, facilities and infrastructure, government, health care, transportation, and water/wastewater. Pacifica takes tremendous pride in its multi-disciplined staff with wide-ranging expertise, knowledge, and experience in the industry.
Founded by Ernest Camacho in 1979, Pacifica quickly established itself as an exemplary 8(a) Small Business by providing diversified program management, engineering, maintenance and operations, and technical support services to a number of defense facilities, which included contracts on multiple air force bases such as Los Angeles Air Force Base, Edwards Air Force Base, Onizuka Air Force Base, Travis Air Force Base, and Air Force Production Plant 42.
In addition to Pacifica’s significant role with the U.S. Air Force, Pacifica also provided electronics and electrical systems engineering to the U.S. Marine Corps, U.S. Coast Guard, and the U.S. Navy. Pacifica was responsible for shipboard repair and overhaul of electronic equipment for Mare Island Naval Shipyard and the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR), which were two of the largest naval depots on the west coast during that period.
In 1989, Pacifica “graduated” from the 8(a) Program and was awarded the Administrator’s Award for Excellence from the U.S. Small Business Administration in recognition of “outstanding contributions and service to the nation.”
Since its inception, Pacifica has successfully managed billions of dollars in construction projects, which includes educational facilities, public works, utility infrastructure and alternative energy projects. Pacifica has provided these services throughout the country to a diverse and ever-changing marketplace in the most efficient, consistent, and responsive manner.
Pacifica has experienced unparalleled success in both the public and the private sector and has established its reputation within the industry for its innovative and effective management and technical expertise, as well as the quality and cost-effectiveness of work performed.
Pacifica is recognized as a Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) and holds an active Small Business (SB) certification from the California Department of Industrial Services.
