Expographiq has been built with passion
In the beginning it was a handful of people with a passion for building things, particularly trade show displays, exhibits and signs.
There were some truly wonderful accomplishments in those early years but also the inevitable ups and downs of a new business finding its legs.
In the late 1970’s, Mike Buckley acquired an ownership position in the company and started bringing in key people and partners including the inimitable Raymond Cyr to run operations. Over the next four decades Expographiq acquired its building, dramatically added to its capabilities, invested in equipment, systems and processes, built a talented team, won accolades and acquired clients across Canada and in the United States.
In a nutshell, that’s how Expographiq got to where it is today. Want to know more about how we got to where we are? We’d be happy to talk history in person. Truth be told though, we enjoy talking about the future a lot more. We don’t really spend much time looking back. Forward is our preferred direction.
Making History at a National Historic Site
One of Canada’s most famous National Historic Sites has a little bit of Expographiq as part of its own history. Designed by the good people at Reich + Petch, Expographiq fabricated and installed a 5,000 square foot, state-of-the-art visitor centre at Old Fort Henry in Kingston, Ontario. Each year, the destination helps thousands of tourists immerse themselves in a highly interactive military museum experience.
Not So Lost in Space
Expographiq helped both traveling and permanent exhibitions for the Canadian Space Agency achieve serious lift-off.
Since then the exhibit, Living in Space has been giving visitors to science centres across Canada as well as the Canada Space and Aviation Museum a hands-on encounter of what life is like hundreds of kilometers above the earth’s surface.
Fabricating Canadian History in a Good Way
When the Niagara Falls History Museum underwent a $12 million dollar renovation and expansion, Expographiq worked closely with the museum team on realizing this historic project.
Working closely with the designers and the museum’s project team, Expographiq fabricated and installed the new permanent museum exhibits including a gallery dedicated to the Battle of Lundy’s Lane, one of the bloodiest battles of the war of 1812.
