CDN – Component Design Northwest

Project Description

How We Help…

Spend over fifteen years with someone, and you’ll find that you know each other’s thoughts, can finish their sentences; in short, you know just what they want and expect. That accurately describes Lakeshore’s relationship with CDN. We “get” what they want and make sure their vision comes to life at every show! Both valued clients and friends, mom Jan and daughter Shawn are a dynamic duo who lovingly carry on the family legacy husband and dad, Richard founded so many years ago. Larry and the Lakeshore team are as committed as CDN to make sure that legacy is conveyed – effectively and attractively. When it’s not show time and Lakeshore isn’t designing, constructing and installing CDN’s fantastic exhibit, it’s kept in tip-top shape in our Cicero, Illinois facility. But, that’s not the only thing being kept in shape. Shawn is hugely health conscious, and she’s continually encouraging Larry to experience the same. Catch him on the showroom floor with a funny colored smoothie in his hand, and it’s a pretty safe bet it came from Shawn!
