Artex Inc. is a privately held corporation founded in 1990 by John K. Jacobs and Todd Herman offering fine art transportation, storage, crating/packing, and collection management to museum, gallery, private and commercial clients. Artex’s mission is, and always has been, to provide our clients with the highest standard of service to handle, pack, move and protect their artwork and antique collections.
Over the last 25 years we have expanded to five major art markets with a staff of over 200 employees, a national fleet of climate controlled trucks, multiple state-of-the-art and high security storage warehouses, a conservation lab, and five crate production facilities. The company provides a comprehensive range of technical support services, which have expanded to include: inventory management, exhibition coordination, relocation services, installation, rigging, conservation and project management.
We have assembled a nationwide staff of the most experienced technicians in the field of fine art services. As a result, the company is routinely called upon to handle the most difficult and demanding of projects. These projects have included relocating entire museum collections, and creating more efficient systems for moving art collections on a large scale.
The trust that our clients place in us to handle the world’s cultural heritage is something that we value above all else. This value permeates the company’s culture, and informs every decision we make.
