alpha technologies Expands to New Location

June 8, 2017

 

While watching the Super Bowl in February 2012, Alan Castell had an idea to make technology work better for people and Bruce Froebe was listening. Together, they formed alpha technologies inc. and turned Alan’s garage into a secure hi-tech digital centre, inking their first deal in May of the same year.  

This vision has allowed these friends to enter into their 6th successful year, focusing on Full IT management, VoIP, access systems/security and now entering the field of 3D printing technology for businesses of all kinds.  

The need arose to move into a new location, one more suitable for their expanding operations. Wanting to draw eyes towards their gorgeous new offices, the call to Electra Sign was made, and our team responded with a unique design that was manufactured and installed May 2017. The crown jewel is the custom spinning LED logo, but our careful craftsmanship and beautiful LED lighting is on display throughout the whole sign. We hope it serves them well as their business continues to flourish. 

alpha technologies inc. not only stands behind the products they offer, they pride themselves on creating relationships with direct involvement and true, honest partnerships. If you're unhappy with your company's current IT service, give alpha technologies inc. a call or check out their website and learn more about them today.

Customer Profile: Gospel Mission Church

June 1, 2017

On April 12th, 2015, the shovels hit the ground on new real estate in Winkler, Manitoba. This sod turning event marked the first stages in moving the Gospel Mission Church from its Pembina Ave. location after 11 years to 15th Street. From the first service in a shared building in April 2005 with Emmanuel Mennonite Church, to holding their first service in their new building on April 24th, 2016 – the changes were welcomed.

Driving onto the gravel parking lot to meet for the first time, Electra Sign provided a detailed presentation using the EMC Demo Truck to visualize the technologies available in an electronic messaging centre(EMC). How these technologies would enhance the communications of the Church and the surrounding communities. With more than 250 members and service attendance of over 800 regularly, Gospel Mission Church has become a recognized gathering with members(partners) growing constantly. 

Capturing the unique beauty of the Church, Electra Sign’s team custom designed, manufactured and installed a 14-foot-high, double-sided 12mm electronic messaging centre. Boasting full colour high resolution imagery and animation, this structure compliments the building and its shape.

Signs 101: Illuminated channel letters on a budget?

April 20, 2017

Channel letters are custom-made metal or plastic letters that are commonly used on the buildings of business, churches, and other organizations for exterior signage. They can be illuminated or non-illuminated and can give your business a clean and sophisticated look.

Unfortunately, illuminated channel letters can be financially out of reach for some signage budgets. In many situations though, similar effects can be achieved in a more affordable way with our LED-illuminated push-through letters. Typically, this type of letter is routed from a thick polycarbonate substrate to give it dimension, and then back-lit with LEDs. It won’t be quite as thick as a traditional channel letter but can be fabricated at smaller overall sizes when required. Push-through letters also offer the benefit of side-lighting at no extra cost, adorning the letter edges with an eye-catching halo light effect at night.

If you’d like more info about our illuminated channel letters or push-through letters, please contact us.
