LIMA — Now under new ownership, Signs Ohio is renewing its mission to help businesses in the Lima region brand their businesses and create unique identities.
Signs Ohio owners Heather Daley, Brian Spallinger, Nate Colatruglio, Tony Daley and Matt Childers decided to get involved with Signs Ohio about two and half years ago when Childers Media Group had bought the 26-year-old company.
At the time, Childers Media was looking for a partnership, which they accepted, but in early 2017, the five bought total ownership of the company and moved to 5560 Bellefontaine Road.
“With Spallinger Millwright being a construction company and Childers being an advertising company, we wanted to combine the two skill sets together to better help our customers,” said Mr. Daley.
Under the new ownership group, the company has created signs for Veterans Memorial Civic Center, Beer Barrel Pizza and Grill, Taco Bell, McDonald’s, INEOS, Dunkin’ Donuts and Menards. The company works with businesses of all sizes, including minority-owned ones.
Signs Ohio is now recognized as a woman-owned business and is in the process of being EDGE (Economic Dividends for Gender Equality) Certified.
The company specializes in designing customized signs for high rise buildings, digital signs, pylon signs, post and panel signs, monuments, directional signs, does repairs, maintenance, installation and sells flag poles and awnings. Ohio Signs also specializes in soil removal, excavates foundations, conducts state-licensed electrical work, and scissor-lift services.
Customers looking to obtain signs should contact the company three months in advance to ensure that there is enough time to efficiently create the desired product, according to Mrs. Daley.
“We pride ourselves on quality and customer service and being upfront and honest with people,” said Colatruglio.
“Within the next five years we hope to grow,” said Mr. Daley. “We bought this property with five acres and we have been able to extend the property further back, add more employees and get newer vehicles.”
