About Us

 

Our Story

Tim Medema, our creative leader, began his career in 1991 as an apprentice in the events industry. He quickly gained the knowledge of every aspect of fabrication through the mentoring of seasoned veterans.

 

Tim along with his wife Maria, realized his dream of crafting masterpieces.  In their humble beginning they launched Abitzy Inc. out of their home garage in 2008.

 

Through years of continued excellence, stellar customer service, and consistent quality of work, Abitzy has grown exponentially. Originally operated out of 2 locations totaling up to 55,000 sq. ft. in Wood Dale, IL. Abitzy has since expanded as of June 1st, 2023, and upgraded to a new 88,000 sq. ft. facility in Aurora, IL.
