We were pleased to work with Richardson International on their new iconic building signage for the new 62,000 sq. ft. Richardson Innovation Centre facility.
Located in the heart of downtown Winnipeg the facility was designed for advanced food product development. The building is also home to the Richardson Food & Ingredients Team, Oilseed & Milling Product Development Suites, Analytical Laboratory and a Culinary Testing and Demonstration Kitchen. They work with companies to provide comprehensive guidance in areas such as product conceptualization, formulating prototypes, recipe optimization, ingredient analysis, and manufacturing.
The new building letters and monument Electra Sign designed to accent the dramatic angular form of transparent glass and Tyndall stone architecture designed by Number TEN Architectural Group. The LED illuminated signage was crafted to make a bold impact with an engaging evening glow that utilizes environmentally-friendly LED lighting.

Larry Becker is our veteran sign painter here at Electra Sign. He has been working in the sign industry since he was a teenager and is arguably the best sign painter in our region. His skill, experience, and attention to detail bring top quality results to all of our products.
Aside from the skills he brings to the table here at Electra Sign, Larry is one of the nicest guys you would ever meet. He always takes a genuine interest in any conversation you have with him and his positive outlook on life can be infectious. He loves travelling with his wife, Loretta. In the summer months, he spends much of his time driving around Winnipeg in his midnight blue convertible, trying out the local restaurants.
We are very lucky to have Larry on staff here not only for his skills, but also for his positive personality, and the energy he brings into the workplace.

With that statement, it should be noted that not all custom signs are built the same, and not all are built to last. Many sign companies will quietly skimp on materials to save money on their end, resulting in signage that warps in extreme temperatures or fades after repeated direct sunlight exposure. This isn’t even the lowest some “manufacturers” will stoop to; some are merely shell fronts and only deal in imported, shoddily made parts and even completely built signage from overseas that don’t meet CSA standards. But they won’t tell you this, using deceptive language like “Designed in Canada” to deflect the truth of their actions. If you’re paying Canadian prices, you should ensure you’re receiving wholly Canadian made signage.
When dealing with quotes from multiple sign companies, ask their representatives to detail what materials will be used, where from, and what measures will be taken to remedy these issues if applicable. But also ask your fellow business owners (if possible) what sign companies have given them the best results most recently. If you're still unsure, Google Reviews can often be a helpful source of info as to which sign companies are most reputable, and whose signs will stand the test of time.
It is important if you are investing in new custom signs for your new business to do your research, so you are getting the best value for your money and time.
