Harry Simon started his career in the electrical advertising business in 1929 as a salesman for Seattle Epcon. His career grew with the sign business and in 1946, he and Frank Dupar Sr. opened Tube Art Displays on the shores of Lake Union. His philosophy was that in order to meet the demand of the electric sign business you must have the right personnel. He said "This means you must have good, well trained salesmen, not order takers; good designs and surveys that will help in selling the value of electrical advertising, along with efficient shops to produce the displays within the estimated price." That same philosophy holds true today. The employees took over the day-to-day operations of Tube Art as Harry began his retirement in the late 1960's. Tube Art, is still a locally owned business, and is currently expanding it's corporate office to Bellevue, and it's ADA wayfinding division to Auburn, Washington.
As the future changes, Tube Art Group is prepared both technically and operationally to meet the challenge in growth and services for our present and future customers.
