Chapter 5: The One Where All Production Moves In-House


After only two years at their Front Street location, Apollo Design® was busting at the seams and primed to manufacture all their products in-house.

They relocated to a 10,000-square-foot space at 3912 Option Pass, printed their second Apollo Custom Standards Gobo Catalog featuring 500+ gobo patterns in 20 sizes, and added black-and-white glass. By 1998, Apollo had introduced color and textured glass patterns, along with dichroic filters, to serve their fast-growing core of dealers.

They soon utilized the 5,000-square-foot unfinished attic for meetings and additional office space and began a two-year trend of hiring a new employee every month to capture the demand.
