Pacific Press Today
Our story began during World War II, when we built America's first hydraulic press brake.
Pacific Press Technologies is a world-class leader in the design, manufacture, and service of hydraulic press, press brake and automation solutions.
Founded in 1945, Pacific made a name for itself when it produced the world’s first hydraulic press brake. The concept quickly caught on as the industry recognized the hydraulic brake as a much safer alternative to the mechanical press brake. Over the years, Pacific has installed over 15,000 machines across North America, maintaining its place as a leader in press and press brake equipment. Pacific continues to be well known for its extremely robust and reliable designs, engineered and manufactured right here in the USA. From 100 ton presses to 3,000 ton press brakes, Pacific can custom design and build the right machine for your application.
At Pacific, our clients take comfort in knowing that our seasoned experts work hard to understand every aspect of your business and metal forming application to ensure we design and build a machine ideally suited for your production requirements.
