Not many sign companies can say:
“We’ve been in the business since 1947”
It all started when a talented young man named Chandler Grey Dillard and two friends started doing show cards while in the Navy stationed in Hawaii. When the three got out of the Navy they brought their talents home to Fort Lauderdale, Florida and opened “Modern Art Sign Company”. Eventually, the two friends left Mr. Dillard and he started doing neon, and changed the name to "Art Sign Company" as we know it today.
After many years of struggling and building the company to support his family, Mr. Dillard taught the trade to his two sons, Joe and Dan. The two would regularly fabricate and install the creations of Art Sign Company. Eventually Dan would leave the company to pursue other avenues, but Joe stuck it out until Chandler Dillard had passed away, at which time Joe Dillard took over the company.
It was in the 1980’s when the company really expanded, from a single building to a second building right across the street that was five times the size of the original building. Slowly over the years with more large corporate accounts, the company has continued to grow. Currently we are housed in 5 adjoining buildings. The original building which was a mere 20 feet from one of the current buildings was torn down in the mid 1990’s.
In our current configuration we have three paint booths and two buildings dedicated to fabrication of large pylon, monument and cabinet signs. One building houses our sales staff, another building houses both our graphics department and channel letter department. To support our ever growing fleet of vehicles we have two full time mechanics with their own dedicated workshop. Our neon plant currently has three tube benders with decades of combined experience. It is housed alongside of our channel letter final assembly area.
Art Sign Company is also one of the few sign companies to offer residential housing to a handful of employees with an apartment building on site.
