ZONE DISPLAY CASES
MUSEUM DISPLAY CASES DESIGNER
Initially designing and fabricating museum-quality display cases for some projects we were working on, we got involved more and more in developing and building made-to-measure casework that would meet the demanding needs of curators and conservators as well as exhibit designers. Over time, designing and manufacturing conservation grade display cases became our specialty and we have grown to be an important and reputable firm in this business. We deliver optimally designed display cases, on schedule and within budget. Our cases are profitable investments that offer superior quality at very competitive prices. Over the years, we have built a solid reputation where the word "impossible" and "no" is not part of our vocabulary. For this reason, our new slogan is "Driven by Solution", which reflects our determination to overcome any challenge.
