History

ACME Production Resources has been in the game for over 30 years, and has a history that proudly displays how the company has evolved over time and trends.

Originally called ACME Props and Sets, we were a go-to-source for still photography and television commercials. This was a foot in the industry door that eventually led us to an updated name, ACME Production Services. At this stage, the set props and commercial focus shifted to support service for event production, and business really started to take off. It only took one year to outgrow our first location, and ACME was re- located to the Historic Walker’s Point neighborhood of Milwaukee, WI.

By the early 1990’s, we had established a portfolio to be proud of. From the fabrication of exhibits, such as the Milwaukee County Zoo’s Aviary, to lighting an elaborate deep tunnel exhibit for the Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewage District, it was clear that we were getting noticed! After such pieces, ACME Production Services began receiving many more customer requests, and started offering lighting in addition to scenery.

With more sales, staff, and experience, in 1991, we were incorporated as ACME Corp. In just a few short years to follow, we started offering lighting and staging solutions for corporate meetings, company parties, conference production, fashion shows, theatrical productions, and even weddings. Our offerings took off and in 1998, it was finally time to re-locate to our current location, and we expanded to the historic and former TV-6 Television Studio building.

From the days of mastering still photography props, all the way to the current hour of manning full on event productions, ACME’s story is a true tale of a brand’s evolution and keeping up with our industries events and trends. Today we stand proud as a company with a strong history, desire to always to better, and a love for our industry that is reflected in every product we put out.
