to introduce myself, my name is Pini Barak and I am the owner of P.B.
Marble Services Co. In 1970, I was drafted into the Israeli Defense
Forces as an infantry soldier. Over the years I’ve defended my country
of birth in 3 different wars. In 1972 I married the Mother of my children,
Ronit. You may have already spoken with her she is my right arm, partner
in everything and mans the phones when I’m out on appointments. In 1973,
I started my University studies in mechanical engineering at the Technion,
Israel’s MIT, located in Haifa, Israel’s third largest city and port.
In order to support myself, a friend introduced me to the world of marble
That started my 26-year long journey in marble, working at first as an assistant and eventually apprenticing with some of the best Master Stone Workers. Over the years I’ve traveled and worked in Italy and Spain, meeting and studying with many of the European Stone Masters. From them I’ve acquired many of my industry’s secrets, both old and new.
Then in 1975, I founded my first company, Barak Services. In the course of building my business I also raised and provided for my family. Throughout the life of my company, we had the honor of polishing some of the most prestigious buildings in Israel; the Israel Museum in Jerusalem was one. Then, just after the 1991 Gulf War, I immigrated to this country, eventually bringing my family and starting my second and current company,
P.B. Marble Services Co.
Since 1991 P.B. Marble Services Co. has contracted with many corporations, businesses and residents to perform hundreds of restoration and refinishing projects, both large and small. Following the Northridge Earthquake we restored many damaged marble statues and stonework, in many cases masking any evidence of damage.
