About Pacific Building Systems

Pacific Building Systems has been manufacturing steel structures since 1962.

PBS is a privately held company: each owner is active in the day-to-day operation, which means that decisions are made quickly to ensure that all phases of the projects have an on-time completion with the highest possible quality.

PBS’s facility is located in Woodburn, Oregon. The facility includes a professional management-administrative team, sales, estimating, engineering, detailing, purchasing, manufacturing, staging areas and shipping department.
PBS engages in the marketing, budgeting, design, engineering, detailing, manufacturing, shipment, and erection consultation of custom engineered steel buildings. PBS does not participate in any type of field construction.

PBS’s state-of-the-art design facility custom designs any building to the customer’s specifications, saving clients both time and money. PBS’s components have a 30-year warranty and the steel buildings are renowned for how easy they are to assemble and erect. PBS delivers from Oregon, directly to the customer’s job site using its own fleet of trucks.

PBS prides itself on the best customer satisfaction within the industry!

We are regional, no large conglomerate to deal with. This means we are available, ready and willing to quickly respond to any changes, problems or issues that may arise as this project develops. Try getting manufacturers to visit your job site if questions or issues come up during the installation process. If you ever need replacements parts, we respond quickly and are eager to help in any way we can.We have a long history of excellent customer service. We have been in this business since 1962, so we have been supplying building systems to our friends and neighbors for 55 years, and our reputation for taking good care of our customers cannot be beat by anyone in the industry.

We were full service (providing concrete and installation of the building) for almost 20 years, and we know what it takes to install the building efficiently. Our detailers try to look at projects from an erectors perspective to lower the cost and time for building erection. We pre-fabricate to the most significant extent possible because it is more efficient to do the work in the controlled environment of a shop than out in the field. We weld the clips in place, so you don’t have to bolt them on. We make up all the X bracing, ready to drop in place ( most of our competitors ship rolls of cable, boxes of parts, and an instruction manual describing how to do the work that we have already done for you). Most of our drafting team has spent time out on the job site, so they understand how important it is that things fit together correctly.

We really care. Our sales and customer service team takes great pride in making sure each customer had the best possible experience when they buy a building from PBS. We have a tremendous amount of “repeat customers” because we took such good care of them the last time they bought from us. We enjoy many long-term relationships with customers because we are easy to work with, and we respond quickly to any question or problem that the customer may have.

We offer value engineering. With all the experience in this business that we bring to the table, we are often able to guide the customer towards a more efficient approach that can provide the same function at a lower overall cost. We encourage our customers to send us the drawings and specs of a project so we can estimate your building as intended by the architect. Our estimating department will always give advice or alternates to make the building more efficient to lower cost, sometimes with only minor changes.

Many erectors are able to install a PBS building at less expense than other brands, helping the project go quicker, saving both time and money. If additional parts are needed, (occasionally parts are damaged on site, or minor changes occur in the field) we usually can fabricate and ship the required additional components within a couple of business days.
