Billings Productions is a world leader in the design and development of animatronic exhibits for zoos, museums and theme parks. The company was founded by Larry and Sandra Billings in September 2003 at a warehouse in Larry’s hometown of McKinney, Texas. With Larry’s passing in 2007, Sandra now runs the company from a 73,000-square-foot creature workshop in the city of Allen.
We are among a handful of companies in the world that produce life-like, life-size animatronic dinosaurs and giant animatronic bugs for traveling and permanent exhibits. Billings Productions has the added distinction of specializing in creating animatronic creatures suited for both indoor and outdoor display. We also provide customized design and build services for a wide range of static and animatronic wildlife replicas. Together with our partners, we can also work with you to conceptualise, design, build and project manage your next dinosaurs or giant bugs theme park.
Zoos and museums are our main clients. Not only are our animatronic exhibits extremely popular, they offer opportunities for educational messaging centered on wildlife conservation and the science of robotics. Through our realistic, fun and entertaining exhibits, it is our hope that people of all ages will come to appreciate the prehistoric past and its lessons for our planet’s future.
