Fluid Images, based in Sisters, Central Oregon, is being honored by OSU in receiving the “Orange Spotlight” award. (The award singles out companies that, amongst other things, are innovative, stimulate and support the local economy as well as hire skilled and talented OSU alums).
Fluid Images was founded in 1990 when Bob Johnson (OSU graduate) and his son Rick, built the 72 foot Akela Crane in their barn. They went on to get their break on Titanic and have since added and created many more cranes, features and services; including their longest crane, the Stradacrane, with 100 foot reach. Johnsons’ cranes have been used in over a thousand blockbuster movies, TV performances, the Olympics games and countless commercials.
