Obscura Day 2015: Tour of the FAST Corp Fabrication Facilities and Mold Field

Join Darren Schauf as he takes you on a tour of massive proportions in Wisconsin's finest fiberglass fabrication facility.

Ever wonder where those giant roadside statues came from?

FAST Corporation's Darren Schauf, general manager and VP, will take you on a tour of FAST Corporation's facilities to show you the place where giant fiberglass sculptures are born, and the five acre field where they store the molds used to create these massive structures. FAST Corp has been fabricating everything from unusual roadside attractions to theme water park slides for over thirty years. They have hand-crafted and molded fiberglass into statues, shapes, and attractions for thousands of companies around the world. Each piece, whether it’s 2 feet high or 54 feet high is cast from the fiberglass molds that are stored in their five acre field.

Darren has promised this day will be especially monumental - keep your eyes peeled for a giant bird of prey in construction.
