Winter 2012

Midland Metal Products is proud to call Chicago home. Recently, we have been contacted by some well-known Chicago institutions for assistance. The first request came from The Field Museum (, widely regarded as one of the premier natural history museums in the world. The museum was under an intense time crunch to meet a deadline for the opening of their newest permanent exhibit called Restoring Earth, located in the Abbott Hall of Conservation. Their challenge was to fabricate hundreds of shapes and letters of differing sizes out of a specific decorative material. The challenge became a manageable exercise with the help of our CAD engineers and CNC laser equipment. You can see the results for yourself in these images and in person during your next trip to The Field Museum. The second request came from a location high above downtown Chicago - The John Hancock Observatory ( The Observatory wanted to transform existing wasted structure into usable retail space. Midland was glad to offer our assistance. We surveyed the space, converted the space to a virtual model, designed retailed components, and fabricated the components for installation. The results are shown here for you. This project shattered the previous Midland record for highest retail installation in the world.
