Stagecraft History

About Us

Stagecraft Industries was originally known as the Stagecraft Shop, a small division of a school supply company.  The ‘shop’ provided equipment for the educational performance space that happened to be sold along with chalk boards and desks. They introduced many innovative designs to accommodate the needs of the educational performance space that also needed to be used as a classroom.  Some of these designs such as the Class Act Performer and the Stage-Scope are still used in schools today.

During the forties and fifties, the Stagecraft Shop continued to grow, providing stage equipment for large performing arts facilities and more school auditoriums than ever before. In 1960, the Shop became its own entity known as “Stagecraft Industries, Incorporated”.

Today, our headquarters remain in Portland, Oregon with a regional office in Seattle, Washington. The products we produce can be found in facilities throughout North America and overseas.

Our state of the art facility houses one of the largest stage curtain sewing rooms on the west coast, along side our 15,000 square foot metals and electrical shop.

Our most important asset, our employees, are project managers, technicians, metal workers, drafters, installers, and drapery fabricators.  This team of creative individuals combine efforts to create and install the curtains, rigging and equipment found in the auditoriums, churches, TV studios and performing arts centers.

We continue to produce the highest quality products and give you confidence in knowing you are working with a reliable company that has withstood the test of time.

We look forward to working with you on your next project!
