OUR FACTORY

The greatest inflatable mascot factory ever devised!

We purpose-designed and oversaw construction of our new factory in 2009. With 9″ thick concrete walls, full-coverage daylighting, and an innovative geothermal heating/cooling system specifically forbidden under Omaha City Code, it’s as stout, clever, and radical as our WalkAround mascots.

OPERATIONS

20,000 square feet of clearspan space gives us the flexibility we need to manage a huge range of projects. Nearly all equipment and shelving is on wheels, allowing us to reconfigure our space for work, experimentation, and demonstration. A wall-less design (except for the bathrooms) allows office and sales staff to share space with design and production, a critical aspect for projects which can oftentimes demand inordinately effective communication.

LOCATION

2320 Paul Street is two blocks north of Creighton University, just inside “North Omaha.” The lot was once part of Omaha housing projects so rough the area was commonly referred to as “Little Vietnam,” but now heavily revitalized as a gateway linking downtown Omaha with the culture, history, and people of North Omaha. We’re minutes away from the Omaha Airport, the downtown Old Market Area, TD Ameritrade Park (home of the College World Series), and thankfully only two minutes from Skeet’s Barbecue.

GREEN

Our facility is currently the most energy efficient commercial building in Omaha. We prevailed in an epic battle with crusty city code officials and installed an innovative geothermal heating and cooling system. On normal days, our entire operation is lit by daylight, and the building incorporates unique concrete sandwich wall panels which are joined with a fiberglass sine wave system. We’re fans of the environment And super low energy bills.
