Our Journey of Pride

“The only constant in the whole world is change, we will continue looking for ways to improve our process and procedures.”
— Simon Ho, Founder, Forward Signs

At the heart of Forward Signs are the principles of quality, precision, flexibility and creativity to ensure that we deliver the highest standards of excellence to support our clients to achieve their business success.

Starting as a signage company serving small businesses in Toronto in 1986, Forward Signs has grown to a full-service sign solution provider across Canada and the United States, serving the needs of many businesses, industries and government. Our product lines and services have expanded from a simple sign box to way-finding signs, digital signs, metal cladding and more.

Looking back on the hardships we’ve been through, we believe that the foundations, which makes us who we are today, are our passion, diligence and persistence. Moving forward, as the industry leader, it is innovation that allows us to always stay one step ahead of the pack.

Forward Signs now has a team of 100 dedicated employees and a 50,000-square-foot facility in Scarborough, Toronto.

Forward Signs has been providing Booster Juice with our store signage for 15 years. Since our earliest locations you have coordinated and installed quality signs and have met some extremely tight schedules when needed. Thank you to everyone at Forward Signs for your professionalism, quality of product and your interest to help us succeed in the future.

I look forward to have the same commitment and quality that in the end we saw in Ottawa. Ottawa was a challenging project but in the end Forward Signs never gave up and came through with a great final product. I know Forward Signs can and will meet all H&M expectations, including meeting the completion dates.

I would like to congratulate yourself and your Forward Sign team for once again completing an outstanding project for Oxford at our Yorkdale S.W. Expansion project, completed on time and on budget. The quality of the product was first class and the installation timely and well planned. Oxford Properties are proud to have Forward Signs as one of our ‘go to’ contractors and we look forward to working with you again on future projects.

They have helped us through our two separate re-branding programs. Their attention to detail and customer service is second to none. I cannot count how many times they have delivered a quality sign on short notice.

Forward Signs project management team is very organized and detailed which allows them to stay on plan when executing the design, permitting and installation process. In addition, Forward Signs has a great working relationship with all major landlords, and they are familiar with the specifications and criteria of each mall.

Forward Signs was the signage subcontractor for the Go Oakville Parking Garage. Forward Signs has been very responsive, the quality of their drawing and signs have been very good, their site forces have worked safely and have been respectful of EllisDon and the other subcontractors on site, and have ultimately completed the Go Oakville Parking Garage on time, on budget and with a minimal number of deficiencies.

Forward Signs has proven itself to be a reliable company that meets production and installation deadlines, while at the same time maintaining high quality standards. I would not hesitate to recommend them to any company that is looking for a new signage production partner.

It was a challenging project that included exterior signage, building cladding, and marketing signage that we could not have completed without the expertise in fabrication and installation.
