Thomas Swan Sign Co., Inc. is built on a long-standing dedication to high standards of manufacture and service for its clients.
In 1877 Thomas-Swan originated as”Swan the Painter” in San Francisco. Mr. Swan began by painting private homes and commercial buildings, growing to a complete signmaking operation as the demand for custom signage increased.
Carroll E. Thomas purchased the business in 1951 and incorporated his name into the company’s. Over the next twenty years, Thomas-Swan Sign Co, evolved into a noted commercial sign manufacturing firm with work ranging from wall-lettering, gold leafing, and vehicle and window lettering to the fabrication and installation of raised letters and custom signs.
In 1960, Carroll Thomas’s son, Allen, joined the company. After ten years of invaluable hands-on experience, he purchased Thomas-Swan. Under the guidance and direction of Allen Thomas, Thomas-Swan manufactures and installs some of the most prominent signage across the nation and throughout the world.
With three generations of family leadership now established, our attention to service, planning and innovation continues. Committed to excellence, competitive pricing and growth, Thomas-Swan Sign Co., Inc. vows to uphold the highest standards for generations to come.
