Who We Are

The Company

Spaces to Experiences was started as a fabrication only company in 2005. Very soon after that we began partnering with various designers to broaden our range of capabilities.  Since then we have completed projects nationwide. Our talented staff of craftsmen have a combined 75 years of experience in design engineering and fabrication of high-quality exhibits and other components. We serve clients that include museums, visitor centers, store planners, architects and designers, integrated marketers, sign companies, fixture manufactures, the furniture industry, and government agencies on the city, county, state and federal level.

Our highly skilled in-house talent base has the experience and ability necessary to help bring vision to reality in an efficient and effective manner. We are always mastering new materials and technologies, allowing us to provide the latest state of the art, visually stimulating displays and exhibits. By maintaining our high-quality standard, we have won the loyalty of the most demanding customers in the industry.  Our 6,000 square foot facility is conveniently located just off I96 in Marne, Michigan. This location affords us the luxury of lower overhead while maintaining close proximity to our vendor network in Grand Rapids and Muskegon.
