Sally Corporation is a manufacturer and designer of animatronics and props based in Jacksonville, Florida, USA.

History

Sally Corporation was started in 1977 by high school friends John Fox and John Rob Holland.[1] The company began by manufacturing animatronics for various commercial applications, including an animated figure of President Lyndon Baines Johnson, which was created for Neiman Marcus and later donated to the LBJ Library in Austin, Texas. After Sally had been in business for 6–9 months the second hire for the new company was John Wood who had previously worked with Fox. The first hire was an office manager, Nancy Hafner. John Fox left the company in 1983. Holland stayed with the company until 1988. In the late 1980s and early 1990s, Sally Corporation went on to develop interactive dark rides. John Wood continues to serve as the Chairman and CEO.
