ABOUT US

WE ARE HOLMAN

For nearly sixty years, HOLMAN has been a one-stop-shop for custom design, fabrication, and installations of engaging museum and cultural exhibits, trade show programs, branded experiences, retail environments and displays, and world-class attractions.

We work with clients and partners that are local and global, public and private, large and small. We have the experience, multi-disciplinary talent, and flexibility to deliver any project on time, on strategy, and on budget.

FACILITIES

With over 40,000 sqft of design and production space in Toronto, Canada our talented craftspeople are augmented by the latest technologies and equipment.

HOLMAN’s production facility includes a fully-equipped woodworking shop, CNC machine shop, assembly and setup area, large format print shop, and a paint department for finishing a variety of materials. Custom LED lighting, interactive circuitry, and unique electronic solutions are fabricated and assembled in our special effects shop.

An additional 20,000 sqft of storage space allows us to manage large-scale projects, prior to shipping them across North America.  All of our projects are supported by a national installation team that service our clients’ needs from coast-to-coast.
