As the company continues to expand and take on more projects in the medical sector, it was decided that ”Interiors” in the PBI name was too limiting, subsequently leading to name Pacific National Group – PNG.

Pacific Systems Interiors, led by Jon Miasnik, was formed as a subcontracting entity of carpentry and supervision trades, not just to serve PBI but to serve other select GCs and clients. Giolando retires leaving PBI to Art Boren and Lee Darling.


Lee Darling (left) became COO and Art “Artie” Boren (right) became CFO of PBI in 1995.


Pomona Valley Hospital was the first project for Javier Acala, later to become president of PSI. The job was a lighting retrofit, relatively new at the time, replacing the ballast and the lamps in every light fixture in the hospital. NICU pictured as part of the scope.


The name Pacific Systems Interiors is derived from the term, “Interior Systems.” Interior Systems are products that are manufactured as finished products, such as ceiling tiles – and then installed as a system. Other systems include Ultrawall, Classroom Wall, Cleanroom Wall, and acoustical ceiling systems.
