Here at our corporate headquarters in Tewskbury, MA we have the team, talent and all the necessary equipment required to fabricate any type of sign your business requires.
Our in-house craftsmen take great pride in the techniques and materials we utilize to build our signs to last. Signs and awnings are produced by professional craftsmen, using state-of-the-art manufacturing processes and the highest quality materials available. Our fabricators work with a full line of CNC machinery, including 5’x10’ MultiCam Router, 2’x4’ Vytek 75 Watt Laser & 2’x4’ Vision Rotary Engraver. Our 20’ x 40’ Paint Booth utilizes two professional mixing stations, Akzo Nobel and Dupont, for custom, automotive-quality sign finishes.
While many signs may look the same at first glance, the devil, as they say, is in the details. When evaluating a company to work with we encourage you to consider the materials necessary to have a sign that will not only look great the day its installed but many years down the road. Ask for the specs when comparing your proposals. If they are not listed, you are leaving the door open for the substitution of inferior materials.
Not skimping on the thickness of the aluminum, the quality of the vinyl, and the types of mechanical fasteners or the brand of LEDs are some examples of the means to making a better sign. These are also some of the things that are not readily visible until it is time tested. We have an experienced group of pros who evaluate every detail of the job to ensure it is built right.
If your quotes under review are not apples to apples then you are likely getting an inferior product.
