Commercial Signs for DOT Foods Fleet Maintenance Facility
When DOT Foods moved their Joliet, IL Distribution Center to University Park, IL in 2016 they reached out to Sharp Mill Graphics to help them introduce their brand to the new space with several of our corporate signage solutions. You can learn more about those projects by checking out one of our previous blog posts titled Corporate Signage for DOT Foods in University Park, IL.
However, the distribution center facility didn’t have the accommodations to handle the daily maintenance of their fleet of trucks and trailers, so at the beginning of 2017 they began building a beautiful new state-of-the-art fleet maintenance facility directly next door to the distribution center facility, which just recently was completed at the end of 2017. Graefen Development, who is also one of our clients, was the general contractor for the new facility and they did an outstanding job on the project!
DOT Foods was happy with our previous work, so as the new fleet maintenance facility was getting finished up they reached back out to us to help them incorporate their brand on the new facility!
This large digitally printed sign on the front of the building is a finished size of 65″ tall x 144″ wide. It was manufactured in (3) 65″ tall x 48″ wide .080 thick aluminum panels and secured to the concrete wall with tapcon screws.
We designed and manufactured this double-sided HDU (High Density Urethane) truck entry monument sign to mark the entrance to the fleet maintenance facility. The finished size of the monument sign is 56″ tall x 60″ wide x 20″ thick. The blue dimensional letters and logo are manufactured out of 3/8″ thick laser cut aluminum and flush stud mounted to the monument structure on both sides. The sign lighting and landscaping will complement the monument sign very nicely once those projects are completed in Spring 2018.
This large digitally printed DOT logo sign on the side of the building is a finished size of 65″ tall x 66″ wide. It was manufactured in (2) 32.5″ tall x 66″ wide .080 thick waterjet cut aluminum panels and secured to the concrete wall with tapcon screws.
As trucks enter the fleet maintenance facility they must stop and check-in at the gate station before proceeding. We added this .080 thick waterjet cut aluminum 36″ tall x 37″ wide digitally printed DOT logo sign on the building to greet drivers that is secured with wood anchors and sign standoffs. Lastly, we added the DOT logo on the doors in contour cut etched glass vinyl for the finishing touch.
Once again, we would like to thank DOT Foods for choosing Sharp Mill Graphics as your commercial signage provider and we hope you’re satisfied with our work!
