May is a special month at IDS and this year we celebrate 14 years in business. We have much to celebrate!
We’ve come a long way in our 14 years, opening the business in Irondequoit with just three employees. After seven years there, and as business was growing, we relocated to the Rochester Arts District in 2012 and today, we boast a team of 35 talented individuals.
Business boomed from 2011 to 2015 when we saw spectacular growth. We’re so pleased to say we were recognized as a Top 100 Company in Rochester from 2011 to 2016, consecutively, and in 2015, Paul was a finalist for Rochester’s Business Person of the Year.
Today our growth continues as we announce our new sales offices in South Eastern New York and Buffalo. We welcome our newest team members who will help us innovate and build the next fourteen years and beyond.
Part of our success is attributed to the new technologies we have invested in over the past two years, like Solar and digital wayfinding, plus an upgraded ERP system that allows us better estimating, procurement and accounting capabilities, as well as improved capacity planning. It is these new systems and technologies, and our refined expertise, that will help lead us in our future endeavors.
But our success largely exists because of our awesome team. From project inception to installation – it takes the entire team to deliver the technologically-advanced signage that our customers are “Wowed” by.
Some of our most recent projects include:
- The monolithic Five Star Bank Signage at 100 Chestnut Street
- The standout marquee sign for Ansel Park Senior Living
- The spellbinding Magic sign for RIT
- The cutting edge solar sign for The Harley School
- The new gateway sign for Rochester International Airport that literally puts Rochester on the map
We’re excited for the great projects in the pipeline and we truly couldn’t be happier and prouder of our team who helps IDS live out our mission with each and every customer.
To this, we celebrate 14 great years!
