Since 1979

How Did We Get To Be So Good?

When a client first approached Franc Tivadar, a cabinet maker and immigrant from Slovenija, and asked to collaborate on a museum case exhibit in 1979, Franc had no idea agreeing would be the first step in founding what is now EDE Corporation.

We’re still a family-run business (you’ll sometimes see Franc about, though Greg’s at the helm now), and we still believe in doing things right, in treating our clients like family, and in designing, building, and managing immersive personalized experiences for exhibits that inspire visitors to act.
