Work Hard, Play Hard

GROPEN_SEGD2.jpg

We're a tight-knit team of creative problem-solvers, artisan craftsmen, and logistical wizards. 

In 2001, our Owner, T.J. Ronayne, graduated from the University of Virginia and pursued his passion for the arts starting to work at Gropen on the production and installation team. About 10 years later, he bought the company from the founder, Neal Gropen.

We are always looking for top talent that enjoy working in a fun, fast paced environment. Please visit our Careers page for more information regarding open positions or send your cover letter and resume to careers@gropen.com.
