Chandler Signs Products

The year was 1978...

and the country was in economic turmoil. Times were tough. It was not the best time to go into business, unless you knew how to take care of customers. Patrick Chandler was such a fellow. A veteran of the sign industry, Mr. Chandler worked at several sign companies prior to founding Chandler Signs. One customer became two. Then three. Soon, Chandler Signs made a name for itself handling a major retail pharmacy conversion. Eventually, Mr. Chandler stepped aside and sold Chandler Signs to a partnership lead by Rockford V. Gray.

Leadership, focus and faith

The mid-eighties brought new challenges for Chandler Signs. It was time to implement a system of managing projects that would become the envy of the sign industry. "Rocky" Gray employed skilled craftsman in the manufacturing, engineering and art departments. Equally important, he mentored Chandler's sales staff and developed an estimating department second to none. Chandler Signs business philosophy of customer commitment is guided by deep seated faith. Faith is part of Chandler Signs guiding lights to this day.

Solid growth

Eventually, Chandler Signs outgrew it's one office and became a national presence in the sign industry. Chandler Signs now performs large scale conversions on fast-tracks for the banking, medical, retail and hospitality industries. We are unique in the sign industry as we were the first sign company in the U.S. to be certified to perform L.E.D. sign conversions by UL®. We take pride in each and every product we manufacture from the largest high-rise sign to the smallest hotel room number plaque.

Now under the leadership of 44 year sign veteran Gary Stevens as CEO (most of that with Chandler), Chandler Signs future for its team members and customers remain in solid hands.
