Today we celebrate Tube Art’s 75th anniversary! It’s a significant milestone that’s prompted me to take a minute and consider all this company has achieved in three-quarters of a century. Since its founding in 1946, Tube Art has grown into one of the nation’s most respected sign manufacturers. Our 75-year anniversary is a celebration of Tube Art’s long-standing legacy, as well as an opportunity to consider our future.
Times have changed in the last 75 years, but as an organization we endure. In 1946, when this company’s founders started bending glass and cutting steel, America was emerging from a worldwide crisis of a size and scope never seen before. The parallels are obvious today; with crisis comes opportunity, with change comes innovation.
As we plan for the future of our business, we are expanding our environmental signage and graphics capabilities and making improvements to better meet our customers’ changing needs and expectations. We’ve enhanced our ability to provide industry-leading service, efficiency, and quality.
By expanding and streamlining our facilities, we are implementing a hybrid workplace. Providing satellite offices to our administrative staff will increase efficiency and flexibility, allow limitless online and in-person collaboration with our production teams, and align our business with the future of post-pandemic work.
Through all we have experienced as a nation, a state, a community, and a company, your support and trust are the core of our enterprise. We don’t succeed unless you succeed, and our many partnerships and diverse relationships come back to that crucial idea: we are better working together, using all of our skills, knowledge, and creativity to get the job done.
For 75 years, this company has grown, survived, and thrived because of all of you. Thank you for decades of motivation. Thank you for generations of loyalty. Thank you for a lifetime of inspiration.
We wouldn’t be where we are without you.
With great appreciation,
