Facility Solutions Group (FSG), Austin, TX, recently acquired Capital Architectural Signs (CAS), a full-service sign company and installer with more than 25 years of experience fabricating and installing high-end wayfinding and ADA signage packages.
FSG will integrate the CAS staff, equipment and services into its existing Signs division in Austin, creating a single, full-service entity. FSG’s Signs division will now offer complete interior and exterior sign packages as well as sign maintenance services for clients without the need to subcontract. Not all of the signs incorporate lighting, but when they do, the potential is there to negotiate a lighting maintenance contract. The LED lighting system FSG installs may only need to be replaced every 10 years, a massive change from the days when signs lit by incandescent or fluorescent lighting sometimes needed replacement lamps annually.
“CAS manufactures interior wayfinding signage, something we currently subcontract. Bringing all their capabilities in-house gives FSG Signs a unique place in the market,” said David Jacobs, vice president of FSG Signs, in the press release.
“Combining CAS’s set of skills with FSG’s capabilities under one roof will enable the resulting company to be a one-stop shop for a diverse customer base. ” said Michael Soheili, CAS co-founder and general manager.
Prior to the acquisition, FSG’s sign unit was already specializing in custom signage, but would mass-produce signs for some national accounts, according to a video on the business at www.fsg.com/signs. One of FSG’s largest job over the years was producing the signage for the NFL Dallas Cowboys’ AT&T stadium.
