Sign-Zone Moves Operations Facility To Brooklyn Center, Minnesota
The company, which currently employs more than 250 workers at facilities in New Hope and Ramsey, said it will relocate to 6850 Shingle Creek Parkway because it needs more space to accommodate its growing business.
Sign-Zone, which was founded in 1998, specializes in designing and manufacturing trade show displays, events signage and other visual communication products. The company’s products are marketed through a diversified portfolio of brands, including Showdown Displays, Creative Banner Assemblies, Edge Exhibits and Victory Corps. Sign-Zone has added more than 100 full-time jobs in the past five years and introduces an average of 50 new products annually.
To encourage the expansion, the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development awarded Sign-Zone a $125,000 forgivable loan from the Minnesota Investment Fund. The company will not have to repay the loan if it meets hiring goals.
Brooklyn Center Mayor Tim Willson said, “The remodeling and re-use of the Palmer Lake Plaza facility, along with the 250-plus administration and manufacturing jobs, and plans for additional employment opportunities, will strengthen the overall economic health of this industrial area and community.”
“Sign-Zone has added 100 new jobs over the last five years; and this expansion will create another 25 good-paying jobs for hard-working Minnesotans in the very near future,” said Governor Mark Dayton, who working with the Legislature, invested $30 million in the Minnesota Investment Fund in 2013. “I congratulate Sign-Zone on this new expansion, and thank the company for its commitment to Minnesota.”
“Sign-Zone is a rapidly expanding company with a reputation for product innovation and for being a great place to work,” said DEED Commissioner Katie Clark Sieben. “This move will help the company continue its recent growth spurt and to add to its workforce.”
