Who We Are

People having fun making big things.

Welcome to our office

Outshaped started as a family run business, a couple of brothers playing with machines. At first we made sculpture cores for bronze artists. Today we work with dozens of superbrands, baseball teams, fiberglassers, and a bunch of other things we can’t talk about for 365 days.

We have passion for our work and the people we work with—they design incredible things, we make them, and we have a blast doing it.

Our Promise

You’ll be confident. From start to finish, we’ve got your back.

We see things most people don’t.

Our proven process can split any massive project into manageable pieces that fit together like a well-oiled puzzle. If you’re not sure how to get it made, send it over.

We wouldn’t do this if it wasn’t fun.

Meet the Outshaped Team

Karl Bekkala

MANUFACTURING

Discovered the inner workings of robots in college and got hooked on the crazy things you can make a machine do. Now he makes the machines do those crazy things to produce incredible shapes, forms, and designs for people. He’s also our CBO (Chief Break Officer.)

Eldon Bekkala

VP SALES ENGINEERING

Started his professional career providing CAD design for big manufacturing firms. At Outshaped, he is the crucial link between somebody imagining something big and bolting down the finished project.

Wes Bekkala

PROJECT MANAGER

Pedaled the bike at a corporate manufacturer for a decade, then took his fantastic project management skills to a place that needed them (and encouraged him to create even more.)

June Asplin

ARTIST & ACCOUNTING

Thanks to legit painting skills and a fascination with organic shapes and unusual mediums, a creative niche was filled with a ton of passion. And she’s really good at doing the numbers too.

Bob Anderson

ARTIST

An original letterhead with a library of classic sign-painting tricks up his sleeve, he can do everything from hand-lettering to gold leaf inlays and more. He’s a modern-day renaissance man whose passion for art brought him into the 3D display industry. Hand painting, intricate airbrushing, and meticulous detailing make his work stand out.

Jack Anderson

FINISHING

Traded in his construction hard hat for a position in our shop that lets him wear way more hats. Another one of our passionate artists, he can shape, sculpt, paint, detail, coat, finish, and more.

Troy Morris

FINISHING

His inherent creativity is backed by a formal Graphic Design education, and his desire to make things look good shows in the work that he does. That’s all we really know about Troy.

Dustin Bekkala

MANUFACTURING & FINANCE

He’s got a B.A. in mechanical engineering, and he puts that knowledge to work bossing the machines around. And he’s a certified pilot instructor, which is pretty “B.A.” as well.
