Innovative Environments Plans to Bolster Business Growth in the Southeast

GREENVILLE, SC, May 20, 2020 — Houston-based Innovative Environments and Greenville business mainstay Skyline Exhibits and Design today announce plans to launch IE – SOUTHEAST.  The commercial venture combines extensive experience in branded environments, corporate interiors and signage with expanded capacity for fabrication and national installation. IE - Southeast empowers designers, contractors, property and project managers as well as business’ brand ambassadors to collaborate with a local source to design, fabricate and install branded interior environments, luxury & multi-family community signage, comprehensive commercial signage and cutting-edge broadcast studios.


“When we started looking at potential partners for our national expansion, Skyline Exhibits and Design emerged as the perfect fit,” says Innovative Environments co-founder and CEO Craig Koopersmith. Rick Terry, co-founder, continued, saying, “They know marketing and they know how to make an effective corporate environment - their clients realize that. We were looking to partner with someone who could put our capacity to use immediately and we’re excited that Skyline is going to help propel our national expansion.”


When asked about the new venture, Steve Hoffman, President of Skyline Exhibits and Design commented, “Innovative Environments grew out of the same tradeshow beginnings as SED here in the Carolinas.  The focus of the new business builds on how we’ve been helping clients for 40 years by creating environments and image impact pieces that attract attention, enhance a brand’s image and efficiently combine functionality with aesthetics.”   Hoffman added, “IE has an outstanding portfolio that includes work spanning Corporate, Government, Healthcare, Broadcast and Luxury Residential Environments. Our efforts – and our client’s goals – benefit by partnering with someone who has already demonstrated that kind of success.”


The companies are combining experience, resources and facilities. While the Houston facility is expanding capacity for fabrication, the Greenville location is fitting their new location to handle a higher volume of interior and signage projects, and to be a showplace of Innovative Environments. The result is a team of award-winning designers, OSHA-certified project managers and seasoned fabrication professionals dedicated to building the best corporate environments in the world. The new venture will be located at the Skyline Exhibits and Design facility in Greenville, SC.


IE-Southeast brings together two well-established organizations whose creative expertise will provide organizations in the Southeast region access to world-class resources for creating environments that inform and impress.
