“Proto Productions, Inc., has produced many of the exhibitions designed by Staples & Charles Ltd. for nearly 40 years. Frankly, we would not keep inviting Proto to work on our projects, if they weren’t superb craftsmen and terrific problem solvers. Ken Hopkins, President, trained as an industrial designer and is wonderful at working through potential issues early in the project. We met Ken and his team many years ago, when we were designing exhibitions for the Chicago Historical Society and Proto was recommended for the excellence of their graphic production. Over the decades they have added top-quality conservation casework, proper handling and installation of historic artifacts, and great interactives and digital integration to their skill set. And they have always been excellent at coordinating with other fabricators and suppliers.”
