RETAIL EXPERIENCES

Displays & Fixtures

A single source for retail fixture programs at scale.

We’re engineers, tinkerers, creators of technology-forward fixtures, displays, and environments for retail brands. We’ve been building retail assets for 30 years. Our business is built around providing the merchandising services required in retail, especially when a solution is a required at scale. We offer a difference that can be felt in the quality and in the ingenuity of engineering. Plus we’re the only paired with a technology centric design process not found elsewhere.

The bar we set for acceptable quality is high. Our products are more durable, maintain longer useable life, are easier to service in the field and have a higher overall finish. Our team operates out of a 60,000 sq. ft. facility in Mesick, MI. In this facility we maintain a woodshop, metal shop, paint booths, CNC router, and the other various trade tools used to create retail and point-of-purchase displays.

We set up shop in southeast Michigan in 1991. In the early days we were primarily focused on traditional point-of-purchase for retail, although we often worked on programs that others might have been a little uncertain to take on. There was a GE dishwasher display that could be filled with water and run while the door was open, in the store, for example. Our quality, attention to detail and ingenuity in engineering quickly landed us other major accounts from fortune brands.

The Blue Light Special for Kmart. The Mopar Speedshop assets for dealerships across the country. Chrysler’s Vehicle Information Center (VIC) kiosks. In 2001 we moved our sales and admin team into the same facility as our sister company, Bluewater. Our operations team works out of combined 100,000 sq. ft. that’s dedicated to fabricating high quality, and technology-infused retail displays at scale.

How it's used

Fixture Design

From paper concept sketches to CAD designs, our team helps visualize fixtures, displays, and environments so they can be properly engineered, and priced out.

  • Concept Development
  • Rough Sketching
  • 3D Visualizations
  • CAD

Engineering

Translate creative designs into engineered files, ready for fabrication. Our team works through the details to ensure designs will last, function properly, and most importantly, be safe in the field. 

  • CAD Blueprints
  • Material Selection
  • Design Validation
  • Technology 
  • Programming

Fabrication

We operate 100,000 sq ft of manufacturing, with teams that are proficient in woods, metals, plastics and other materials used to fabricate displays. We build thousands of displays for clients across the country every year.  

  • Woods, Metals, Plastics
  • Custom Cabinetry
  • Displays & Fixtures
  • Environmental Pieces
  • Painting
  • Finish Work

Installation

A single source to design, build, and deploy your fixture programs. We work with customers to install fixtures and displays across the country, with experience in a variety of environments and working conditions. 

  • Self-Install Instructions
  • White Glove Installation
  • Overnight Installations
  • Union Crews

Technology

We excel at display programs that follow our technology-forward design principles. We enjoy the blend of tech and physical properties and have the technical bench in house to support it.

Our approach

We work with our clients to build custom fixtures, displays, and environments that help them make a positive impression with customers. We start each program with alignment conversations, where we take into consideration all of the requests for the program. From there, and where needed, we visually design concepts. From napkin sketches to fully rendered visuals, this helps all parties understand what’s possible and what to expect. Once designs are done, our engineering team builds plans, ensuring that our strict criteria for safety, proper functionality, and durability are met.

We don’t just design and engineer. We build and deploy thousands of units for customers every year. From endcaps and gondolas, to entire environments, we help our customers create an attractive space that resonates well with customers. We also work to source existing products as necessary. All of this is delivered as needed, in the time window required. For some programs we install everything needed to activate a space. For other programs we simply ship fixtures out with appropriate instructions for on-site setup.
