Modern Signs is a family owned and operated business that has provided Sudbury and area businesses with exceptional quality signs and service since 1969. The current owners plan to retire and are looking for new ownership to continue their work.
With a variety of trucks, shop equipment, and staff, Modern Signs has the capability to build everything from simple signs to LED illuminated channel letters and multidimensional building signs, to complex ground signs. Please see www.modernneonsigns.ca for examples of our work.

For the past 52 years Modern Signs has worked hard to build and maintain a dedicated base of repeat clients, both local and agent accounts from across Canada and the United States. We also see the potential for increasing the number of clients served in both client bases. In the 2018-19 fiscal year sales were over $900,000.00, and through Covid shutdowns in 2019-2020 sales were over $700,000.00, and we maintained that level for 2020-2021.
We have a current staff of seven that includes the ownership. The president looking after the overall operations, 2 installation and service crew, 2 manufacturing, 1 graphics, and 1 bookkeeper/office administration. Current ownership is willing to work with new owners to help with transition.
