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.

Project Manager, EllisDon

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.

VP of Finance and CFO, Golf Town

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.
