Full Service Broadcast Set Design Company

Erector Sets Inc. was founded in 2003 as a custom fabrication shop in a small, shared industrial space. The company has since grown to occupy over 18,000 sq. ft. plus a separate storage facility.

Our scope has broadened to span everything from initial concept and design to logistics and storage. Our project expertise has also expanded from broadcast set design and museum exhibit design to include scenic design and virtual news sets. One thing that has not changed is our dedication to our customers’ satisfaction.


Dedication to customer satisfaction


Offering our experts to your vision

All About Versatility

Our projects have expanded from a simple raised platform for a TV commercial (our very first project!) to designing and building full sets for national broadcast studios. In addition to our works in the television and film industries, we also design and fabricate museum exhibits, trade show booths, as well as commercial and residential architectural millwork.

We bring knowledge and experience gained from years in the set design & fabrication business to each new project. We are a turnkey shop, providing expertise in carpentry, CNC routing, welding, metalwork, scenic painting, graphic production, virtual sets, and plastic work.

The Client Is Our Focus

As a full service set design & fabrication company, we can offer our clients a complete package. Our combined service offerings include technical direction and consulting, design and engineering, project management and art direction.

Our belief in merging clean, thoughtful design with flawless execution is essential in bringing your vision to life. The hands-on approach to each project ensures that the client remains at the center of our focus.


Designed/engineered to your needs

I was shooting a reality/renovation TV series in the Philadelphia area and needed some high-end custom pieces built quickly. I called Erector Sets cold and was absolutely thrilled with the high quality of their work, ease of communication and their fast turnaround time. Brendan and Yuri exceeded my expectations and made my sets (and me) look fantastic. Thanks guys, I hope I shoot in Pennsylvania again soon!

Erector Sets crew are kind, reasonable, efficient and found resourceful ways to make an old worn out space new, fresh and ready to welcome coffee-lovers! We've worked together on two projects and would in the future too.

Ruth Isaac Treatman, Old City Coffee, Inc.

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for the work that your company performed for us in our Malvern studios. We had many design challenges when our project began. Your team provided creative and thoughtful solutions. Your collaborative process always provided an abundance of professional direction as you stayed open-minded to our highly custom needs. The outcome is now a showplace whose form highly complements its function. Your team is pleasure with which to work and your standards for professionalism are among the highest in the industry. We look forward to working with your team on our next project.

I've relied on Erector Sets for years, for projects of all scales and budgets. Brendan and his team are dependable, creative, and always a pleasure to work with.

Kathleen Burke, Art Director, NBC 10 Philadelphia

We have worked with Yuri Petrina of Erector Sets exclusively for over 15 years. The craftsmanship, attention to detail, unrelenting desire to help us problem solve and find new ways to approach aesthetic decisions on a budget -- is unparalleled in this industry. Several years ago, we designed a sliding bookcase/murphy bed system which we realized might be used by the client's young children as play equipment. Yuri helped us choose the right soft close hardware & installed a cable system in the roof structure of the home to stabilize the cabinetry against all abuses. We go to Erector Sets for every project!

Mary Ann Duffy, Architect

We began working with Erector Sets about five years ago and hope to do so for years to come. We have never been disappointed with their design, timeliness, use of materials, attention to detail and honest communication. They have completed both large jobs and smaller ones and each one is treated with equal importance and professionalism. Most important, the outcomes are exquisite.
