COST's roots began in 1957 when John Stanwyck's contracting company, Anchor Corporation, was hired to develop naturalistic habitats at the Milwaukee County Zoo. The zoological industry was seeking changes to the standard cages common in zoos, and sought out a firm that was proficient in concrete applications and artistry. Since the very beginning, COST excelled in blending proven construction methodologies with an artistic flair. This proficiency has enabled the firm to develop highly realistic exhibits within the majority of zoos and aquariums in the U.S. and numerous projects abroad.

The company is now led by Jon J. Stanwyck, President, and
Lance L. Stanwyck, Executive VP. The duo has transformed the firm into a multi-faceted, diversified organization, branching out into many other industries that require custom fabricated features, simulated environments, and theme construction services. COST's award winning work is now also viewable at museums, botanical gardens, theme parks, casinos, resorts, residential communities, golf courses, family entertainment centers, theme retail stores and restaurants throughout the world.

COST's headquarters is located in Jackson, WI, a 140,000 square foot plant located on 68 acres. The facility is equipped with the latest in fabrication technology. The plant operates GFRC, FRP, and urethane spray departments. Various epoxies and acrylics are also utilized by COST's staff of scenic artisans. Carpenters, skilled in theme construction, round out the production facility.

In addition the main Jackson headquarters, field offices in Orlando, Seattle and Winnipeg, Manitoba have been established to better serve clients in these regions.
