Our Vision

To be the North American Museum Display Case Manufacturer of Choice for Conservation Grade Cases

“What impressed me the most was the ability of Don Grogan and the team to anticipate problems, plan for them, and more importantly, calmly trouble shoot unanticipated difficulties and creatively resolve them as they occurred.”

“The favorable reaction of the 250 Pearl Harbor survivors and their families who were on hand for the dedication on December 7, 2010 attest to the success of their effort.”

– Michael Paskowsky, Project Manager

Pearl Harbor Visitor Center – World War II Valor in the Pacific, Hawaii

“There are many exhibit fabrication companies from which to choose, but I know that the CAISAS team offers not only competitive pricing, but stands behind their product. In both of these projects,they proved to be a superior company with which to work. Not only are they exceedingly competent in their fabrication skills, they are also a great company in their personal relations; never demanding, always professional, and always cooperative. They take pride in their work, and it shows.”

– Dr. J Scott Harmon, Director – USNA Museum

Our Tech

At CAISAS, we believe in constantly updating our technology, equipment and production processes, using our state of the art CNC machines for sheet cutting, profile cutting, milling and various other engineering operations to deliver consistent quality and precision.


With the rapid development of display and exhibit lighting technology, there has been a move to create gallery and museum spaces that are brighter, capturing daylight where possible, while employing non-reflective glass and light fittings that are so small and well concealed that they are not always visible to the naked eye.

You can specify museum exhibit lighting systems within cases according to color, energy efficiency, or the sensitivity of the object. You have a range of showcase display lighting solutions and designs available, utilizing the latest in fiber-optic and LED technologies.

Images of various projects depicting multiple styles of cases and lighting systems can be viewed by visiting our gallery under Our Work.

Our People

CAISAS inherits the culture of valuing our multi-talented people as our largest asset. They’re humble to learn and cheerful to serve with an unwavering commitment and willingness to collaborate on projects with diligence, structure, creativity, audacity, and open-mindedness. 

Above all, a “whatever-it-takes” attitude assures our clients with peace of mind and guaranteed success of their projects. We have always encouraged an environment where fun, loyalty, mutual respect are considered the highest values. 

With the parent companies’ 87 years of combined experience to launch CAISAS, our committed and proven team will be the reason for our projects’ success.
