Formations - Tillamook - LR -2471.jpg

Formations fabricated and installed 7,500 square feet of exhibits for the new Tillamook Creamery Visitor Center, “a greeting card not just for Tillamook but the entire state of Oregon” as described by Oregon Governor Kate Brown.

Through new experiences that satisfy an appetite for engagement, learning, and fun—and cheese and ice cream—visitors discover the history of the creamery, get to know the people behind the products, and learn what it takes on the farm, and in the factory to create quality products. Visitors “feed” a calf, “milk” a cow, and follow along the step-by-step cheese-making process from the viewing area above the factory floor—then sample the products at the cheese bar.
