  2. I wish NY was a right to work state. Would make a lot of work we approach a lot simpler. There are a lot of building in NYC that are controlled by union labor. Luckily a lot of them don't list signs as a trade for exterior maintenance. But we do pass up on a lot of interior work because of that. We were doing a phototex wall in a hospital a few months ago and there were wall plates for outlets that had to come off. One of my installers was barked at as he was taking out a screwdriver to take the plates off. We had to wait for a union electrician to come see what had to be done, issue a work order and then remove 6 plate covers. When the job was done and client was happy all that was left was to reinstall plate covers. Client wanted to see them on before my guys walked out. Electrical department needed an hour before they could send someone down. My guys called me and I told them to go ahead and put them back on. What a nightmare!!!!
  3. Your right Eric NYC does not need union installers. But we are bidding on a canopy in a union controlled hospital construction site. All contracts require union labor on site. We can deliver to property line lol. I got yelled at for taking a tape measure out during a walk through haha
  4. UNION Installer/Rigger, NYC/Nassau County area. Title says it all. Please contact nick@hudsonsignco.com. Bid pack due soon, so would need to discuss ASAP.
  5. looks like they're over 40 locations now
  6. Noticed they're expanding here. Their corporate office says they're dealing with a national but lips are sealed as to who it is... They are Texas based.
  7. We have a project on a storefront similar to the one below. We need to install a sign and awning over areas that the only place to attach to would be the aluminum mullions. Sign panel is light so I think Tek screws will be substantial. My concern is the awning. Since the mullions are hollow considering using toggles. Anyone run into a situation like this?
  8. It's actually coming in this week. I'll post up some pics when we have it wrapped which wont be for a few weeks. She's going right to work!

  10. Westchester County NY based Sign shop looking for Sign Maker/Installer. Should come with experience. Sign types include : Electric Non electric /painted Vehicle graphics Awnings Channel letters Cabinets Pin letters NOT looking for designers. Please email: hscojobs@gmail.com
  11. Well I got some numbers in and say far UL is the cheapest... .Waiting to speak with both UL and MET to see why they are $2k apart!
  12. We're a small company in NY state. Almost never are we required to have labeled electrical signs. We do not work in NYC. Few municipalities in the area have the requirement buried somewhere in their code but most inspectors don't even know what to look for or don't bother. Once or twice we've had to order signs from a listed shop in order to work in an area, but still made money, and it was only once or twice. Recently as we get referred more and more we've been coming across work that would have us manufacturing for other parts of the country where it is required, or work inside malls where it is almost always required. I'll be reaching out to UL MET and ETL regarding pricing and the process. But from what I hear I'm not sure if we have enough potential business to justify the extra overhead. It's sort of a chicken before the egg situation I'm thinking. If we don't list, we can't get the work. If we do list, we could get some more work, but not sure if enough...
  13. We were lucky considering what is going on in Staten Island, Rockaways, Jersey Shore etc.....just a lot of lost power north of the city. Deffenitely seen a bump in service work. Came across an interesting one. We quoted this 3-4 years ago actually. Restaurant owner wanted old wooden sign taken down and replaced with new sign. We were told they were going with a company that quoted 1/4 of our price....turns out competing company thought that wrapping the old wood sign in aluminum was a great idea. Owner thought they took the old sign down and put a new one up!! Pictures show what happened when I touched the sign! My hand went through it. If it wasn't for Sandy exposing this problem, this entire sign would have just fallen off the building right onto their front entrance.
  14. We build and install staple system and aluminum step down awnings. Recently a customer approached us with a request for a Standing Seam Awning....Our supplier doesnt carry any supplies for this. Not sure where to start, or how are they made. I'm assuming we're starting with a frame as usual but I guess the cladding is where I'm lost..
  15. We're looking for whole sections of powder coated aluminum fluted posts. ~20' sections.
