PBM has been serving its clients for over 99 years.

In 1923, David Mager set out with a bucket and squeegee and launched PBM. His vision was clear – provide an exceptional customer experience with unmatched services.

Today, that initial vision still drives PBM to innovate and expand. And, what started as a humble entrepreneurial effort is still family-owned—Scott Mager, the founder’s grandson, is proud to continue the PBM tradition of excellence.

Key Events

  • Perfect Building Maintenance was founded by Austrian immigrant David Mager. When he arrived in Brooklyn, he took the best job he could find—washing windows.

    David provided exceptional customer service, and his success enabled him to move to Manhattan and start his own cleaning company.

    The company flourished. Eventually, David Mager’s sons, Norman, Marvin and Lawrence, took over, continuing their father’s philosophy of quality service and unstinting personal attention.

  • Norman’s son, Scott Mager, becomes CEO and Chairman, representing the third generation of Magers to run PBM.

  • Introduced an electronic work order system–which evolved into PBMate, a robust technology platform with 7 modules to streamline and better manage operations.

  • PB Protection created, allowing PBM to strategically expand its offerings and provide quality security services for commercial facilities.

  • PBM Painting was established to accommodate the growing demand for high-quality new construction painting, wood restoration and staining and wall paper hanging.

  • Recognizing a client need, PBM Metal & Marble was started as a specialized division to provide skilled restoration, rejuvenation and maintenance for a full range of luxury surfaces.
