The year, 2017, marks 69 years of continuous business operation for Day Nite Neon Signs Limited. During that time, they have progressed from a local company offering both electrical and non-electrical signage to a fully computerized, full service operation serving accounts throughout North America—from two manufacturing plants connected to a network of agents and installers across Canada.
Some of the milestones in its history shows how they’ve always led the way in establishing manufacturing processes to meet and exceed the needs of their client base:
- In 1979—after thirty years of continued growth in north end Halifax, Day Nite relocated to Woodside Industrial Park in Dartmouth, NS, expanding its office and production facilities to 20,000 sq. ft.
- In 1986, Day Nite became the first sign company in the Atlantic Region to utilize computerized design and manufacturing equipment (CAD-CAM) technology.
- In 1991, Day Nite diversified its product line by purchasing screen printing company, Eagles & Radcliffe.
- By 1998, Day Nite celebrated its 50th year with the opening of a full- service facility in the Toronto area.
- In 2000, they welcomed the millennium with the latest high-tech sign production equipment – AccuBend and AccuTrim – for computerized formation of individual channel letters and accent trim.
- In 2004, large format digital printing with solvent based computer controlled printers was added.
- By 2013 they expanded the Dartmouth location to 30,000 sq. ft. with a move to a larger facility in Burnside Industrial Park.
