Celebrating 64 years in the Sign Industry - Kieffer | Starlite

Celebrating 64 years in the Sign Industry

7.15.20 – We are pleased to announce our company is celebrating our 64th anniversary. Over that time, we have established a reputation as a company that offers innovative sign products, superior customer service, and competitive pricing. The anniversary comes as we have continued to show our versatility by helping clients meet their signage and safety needs during the ongoing COVID-19 crisis.

Company President Kevin Hofert has been with the company since 2005 and says, “We have some extraordinary members of our team with tenures at Kieffer | Starlite over 25 years. They not only advocate for our industry, but they also create a high standard for production methods and product quality for our company. We have strived as a company to create the best in quality products to meet the design look and performance to meet the market demands and help brands stand out. One of our fundamental abilities to have the staying power in a crowded industry is our dedicated team—their knowledge and passion for supporting our customers set us apart.”

Hofert recalls a recent example when a customer needed to make a change to their exterior sign. “A client from a large hotel brand had approved the sign design, and we were in the production process. A last-minute brand update was announced, and they called immediately to see if they could implement the latest standard. Our team communicated quickly, went out to the production floor, and was able to stop the project before production had gone too far. It is that service and desire to help our customers that have allowed us to be in business for 64 years. We also forecast new methods, technology, and adapt as needed with the market.”

Our company history dates back to the 1950s with Starlite Signs and Kieffer & Co. Our company has grown over the years and operates four locations in the U.S. We ensure best practices are repeatable across all facilities. Each facility brings a unique production element to the table, and our expansion over the years was strategic to bring those capabilities under one umbrella. Our North Carolina manufacturing facility produces some of the best-thermoformed products we see in the industry. Our Texas manufacturing facility has amazing neon capabilities. And our Wisconsin manufacturing facility fabricates cutting edge products, with large scale production capabilities. Together we combine and deliver to meet market demands and look forward to many more years ahead. Follow us on LinkedIn or Facebook to learn more about our company’s activities!
