"Working with Formetco was refreshing as we got delivery less than two weeks after the order. That was truly remarkable."
John Mortensen, President of Jones Sign Company

Formetco Digital announced today the completion of their 385th digital billboard project. This latest project was completed with Jones Sign Company, one of the largest and most technologically advanced custom sign fabricators in North America.

The project involved two Formetco F4X 20 mm 14 x 48 displays mounted back to back in an iconic custom sign structure designed, fabricated, and installed by Jones Sign. Robert Klausmeier, Formetco Digital Billboard Specialist said, “On a project like this, a display manufacturer’s reputation is tremendously influenced by the aptitude of the integrator they have partnered with. We were familiar with Jones Sign’s reputation for attention to detail, and we weren’t disappointed. Jones Sign allowed us to focus on just the digital portion of the project, while they accomplished a seamless integration of our product.”

Despite the custom nature of the display, the digital installation went very quickly, and with no surprises. Josh Sahotsky, Display Technician of Jones Sign, said, “Every other brand I have worked with has required five to ten component replacements at turn-on. In contrast, with Formetco we have had zero.”

The completed project can be seen at Bergstrom Import Center in Osh Kosh, WI. As with all Formetco Digital Outdoor Display customers, Bergstrom Import Center was provided with Formetco's proprietary web based software. The displays were also installed with web cameras that face the displays, allowing the Formetco tech support center in Duluth, GA to monitor them 24/7.

As two companies with a large presence in the sign industry, Formetco and Jones Sign plan to complete more projects in the future.
