We go the extra mile to make your project just how you want it. 3D renderings give you confidence it's right.

1. Create Your Vision.

You can go beyond standard. Bring us an idea, sketch, or plan and our designers will work to bring your product to life.

Brainstorming helps to cut through the chaff and get to the quality ideas. If that’s not your forte, bring us a vague concept and we’ll put on our thinking caps for you. If you prefer more involvement, collaborative ideation with us can offer outside perspectives and drive creativity and innovation.

If you’d like to come to us with a more developed idea, here are some strategies for brainstorming to get there:

  • Focus on quantity, not quality at first. Then review your list and work to combine and improve ideas.
  • Invite the unusual and withhold criticisms of yourself and others. A comfortable atmosphere without boundaries often leads to sparks of brilliance.
  • Mix SMEs, novices, different industries, and a variety of personalities in your brainstorming group. Include “outsiders” such as friends and family. The more diverse the assembly, the wider the knowledge base, outside-the-box thinking, and creativity.
  • Try brainstorming questions instead of answers. Questions are the beginning and are open-ended, while an answer brings you straight to an end. This process of recasting problems inadvertently removes barriers.
  • Create idea boards and search for visual jumpstarts. Sometimes images articulate thoughts better than speech. Use Google’s image search and look up any word that pops into your head from industry-specific to thoughts that intrigue you.

Once we have all of your information, our design engineering team with over 70 years combined experience, will assist you in bringing your idea from concept to prototype.

2. See What’s Possible.

Within your budget, we help you determine the right materials to meet your needs. You can view the design in multiple finishes to help you make the best decision.

We believe in staying on budget and only using the most durable and attractive materials to get the job done. We strive for cost-efficiency, but high-end results. Here are the “how” and the “what”:

  • How. We utilize a full suite of capabilities and state-of-the-art manufacturing processes. From under one roof, we are able to complete an entire project from initial CNC design to final assembly. By doing so, we can streamline processes to control costs, collaborate effectively across all production stages, and turn projects faster. It’s how we ensure a quality product.
  • What. Options – everyone likes them. We’ve got them. Stratis can provide you with a myriad of materials, in endless colors, edge options, and finishes. And, if you can’t find what you need, we are happy to work with you to create custom products. Our array of options include:
  • Base Materials
    • Phenolic (Compressed Paper Composite)
    • High-Density Polyethylene (HDP)
    • MDF
    • Fire-Rated MDF
    • Moisture-Resistant MDF
    • Plywood
  • Finishes and Surface Coverings
    • Thermofoil Laminate (Solid, Woodgrain, Stone, or Patterned)
    • HPL (High Pressure Laminate)
    • Melamine

3. Raise The Bar.

We go the extra mile to make your project just how you want it. You see 3D rendering to know it's right.

With more than 30 years of business under our belts, we’ve worked hard to finetune and achieve success through truly innovative means. Once you’ve approved your unique rendering, this is how we know we can take your project to the next level:

  • A Winning Formula. Our champion equation is the marriage of art and skill. The combination of experience, advanced technologies, cutting edge manufacturing processes, and dedicated talent have been paramount to our success.
  • We only pair with the best partners. For years, we have developed relationships and partnered with primarily US-based, leading material sourcing manufacturers and distributors to provide customers with the highest quality, competitively priced materials.
  • Made in America.We’ve spent decades investing in our facilities, equipment, and personnel to bring more of what we do in-house. Now, we’re proud to say that our products are manufactured end-to-end in Wisconsin, giving us—and our clients—unprecedented cost oversight and quality control.
  • 3D-Laminate Experts. Stratis is among a very elite group in the country that has mastered the process of 3DL. It is such a superstar surface to have in our arsenal of materials due to its ability to form around items as opposed to only lying 2-dimensionally on a flat plane.
