James, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
We create environments people want to be in. Designing and manufacturing all the custom wood, metal, lighting, signage and feature products that make our projects very special and one of a kind. I have a fine arts degree, along with industrial engineering and business administration education. I started 555 in 1988 here in Chicago, and we have been designing and building for some of the best of the best in, night clubs, restaurants, hospitality and retail for more than 30 years now.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Being in business and staying in business for 30+ years is not easy as the times and economy changes. Competition locally and globally, along with advancements in technology keep us making sure that we are always getting better and changing with the times, is the requirement to long term success.

Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about 555 International – what should we know?
Unlike most design firms, we are also the real deal manufacturing company that make very high quality and unique products of all kinds. Designing and manufacturing all the custom wood, metal, lighting, signage and feature products that make our projects very special and one of a kind. We have approx. 300,000 square feet of facilities here in the city and ship our products all over the world.

Is there a characteristic or quality that you feel is essential to success?
The willingness to go beyond what most other are willing to put in for the effort and time and research it takes to be successful. My ability to see the big picture and know how to lead all to that goal. “Cool under pressure” and “Dam the Torpedo’s” is my credo!
