OTS has become The Academy’s right hand for our traveling and temporary exhibit programs.  An obviously strong work ethic, dependability, and competency has made our gallery changes stress free.

Jason Farris

I have worked with John and Teddy Ochipinti for the last year and a half on a traveling exhibit in both Washington D.C. and Dearborn, Michigan. Despite all of the challenges that the exhibit has had, On the Scene has continuously remained professional and honest about their work on the project. They clearly have a strong work ethic, and the management and trade skills to get the job done well and on schedule.

Working with the install crew from OTS was a pleasure. Everyone was professional and efficient. Their attention to detail and ability to resolve last minute issues was greatly appreciated. The exhibit components built by Liberty Displays and Exhibits were beautifully made and delivered on time. We couldn’t have asked for a better partner in bringing our designs to life.

I teamed up with OTS on three museum installs and one private event. John and his entire crew were nothing less than professional. All skilled at what they do and very respectful to myself and my clients. I look forward to utilizing OTS on future projects.
