Ensuring that our teams can work in a safe and healthy environment is our top priority. PSI actively monitors any new developments, as this is an ever-evolving situation and we thank our team for observing social distancing and sanitation protocols.

COVID-19 Address from the President
During these unprecedented times, we have been challenged to adapt swiftly and confidently. As a 100% employee owned company (ESOP), we have witnessed our team’s ability to make astounding adjustments quickly, proving our resilient ingenuity and commitment to our work and clients.
Over the last 60 years, Pacific Systems Interiors (PSI) has established itself as a premier contractor consistently delivering unsurpassed quality and service. The health and well-being of our staff, clients, and trade partners remain our top priority. Ensuring that our field employees can continue to work in a safe and healthy environment is paramount. With the guidance of various health authorities, such as the Occupational Safety and Health Association (OSHA), Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and local health agencies, we have been able to safely remain open and observe the recommended protocols for hygiene and social distancing.
As the reality of this “new-normal” sinks in, we realize that every member of the construction industry is feeling the same effects of this pandemic. PSI is proud of our company standards of safety, and in our internal reviews, found that as the Safer-At-Home orders began to roll out, we had little to update to remain compliant. In fact, PSI very recently was awarded a monthly safety and environmental award for our work on the Alamitos BESS project.
Several our clients and trade partners have been equally as impressed with our corporate guidelines and all are welcome to implement them within their own firms to remain compliant. We feel that sharing these tools and resources helps all our stakeholders maintain a safe and functioning work environment.
We are all in this together.
Javier Alcala, President
