SSI is a stalwart in the stainless-steel industry with a rich legacy spanning over six decades. Despite their substantial success as a multi-million dollar company, they had remained virtually invisible in the digital sphere. Leveraging our brand and marketing expertise, we meticulously designed and developed a captivating new brand and website, as well as accompanying video production, that not only showcased their unparalleled expertise but also honored their extensive history.

Woodson Equity

Woodson Equity is a new private equity firm – inspired by the spirit of Detroit – that is aiming to do things differently. The Woodson team has 80+ years of investing experience in the middle to lower-middle market, meaning they know the rules, and when to break them. Fortress acted as Woodson’s strategic partner, orchestrating everything from the name of the firm to the firm’s new landing page and everything in between. We are excited for the future of Woodson and the future of Fortress as a private equity agency expert.

The Custom Companies, INC.

The Custom Companies, Inc. is a massive logistics operation based in Chicagoland and Los Angeles. They are a trusted provider of a wide range of services, and their motto is “getting it right the first time.” That’s just what we aimed to do too, with a full-scale re-design of their website and a stunning talking head-style video to complement it.

Lakeview Precision

Lakeview Precision is a woman-owned and operated precision machining operation that is invested in its people and changing their industry for the better. Fortress stepped in as a strategic partner and helped them hone in their brand identity, create a new website experience, and construct a high-quality video to compliment it. The goal? Establishing Lakeview as the innovator they are.


In many ways, this is a unique client-agency relationship. The partnership began with Fortress acting as a strategic partner, using our knowledge to help Give’r achieve the growth they sought. Over time it has grown into more than that, culminating in a marketing plan and website overhaul that combined the strengths of all of Fortress’ departments and set Give’r up for a heroic new chapter.



The Adria is a brand new, state-of-the-art apartment building in the heart of Madison Wisconsin’s downtown district. Fortress went to work orchestrating everything from the name and brand of the building to the backend development of the website, and every marketing effort in between. We are excited for The Adria to be introduced to its target market of younger professionals when the building opens its doors in summer 2023.
