Chargeurs Museum Solutions overview

David H. Koch Hall of Fossils – Deep Time.

One of three large permanent exhibits in the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History (United States) entirely fabricated by D&P. Deep Time visitors explore Earth’s 3.7 billion-year history, discovering one of the most renowned fossil collections in the world.

Created in early 2020, CMS is positioned as the world leader in custom-made museum installation solutions. CMS is composed of an industrial division, Senfa, which specializes in functionalizing technical textiles, and Chargeurs Creative Collection, the global standard-setter in museum services.


CMS’ teams leverage their worldwide presence to meet the diverse needs of major public and private cultural institutions. Their expertise includes end-to-end project planning (including museum installation and design), as well as the creation of immersive and technological experiences with the accompanying audiovisual and editorial content. Together, CMS’ subsidiaries are involved in some of the most iconic museum projects around the world, spanning the United States, Asia, the Middle East and Europe.


With a total generated revenue of €38.2 million at end-September 2020, business grew by 54.7% compared with the same period last year, notably thanks to acquisitions made over the past 12 months. Demand for technical textiles was still hard hit by the sharp slowdown in the retail industry, coupled with the reduced number of conferences and professional trade shows. Conversely, museum markets, which represent CMS’ core business, maintained sound momentum. Chargeurs Creative Collection continued its successful bidding for new tenders for exhibit construction, and order book levels provide sound visibility on business to come.


In these turbulent times, museums are becoming privileged spaces centered around heritage, education, inspiration and dialogue. Chargeurs’ teams are mindful of this crucial aspect. As such, they are finding increasingly creative ways to safely serve their customers and the general public.
