Based in the heart of the USA, Watertown and Webster, South Dakota, ESCO Manufacturing with its design experts and skilled craftsman combined with 85,000 sq.ft. of manufacturing space can build just about any type of sign imaginable. ESCO has been a leader in custom sign manufacturing since 1965. We have the expertise, capacity and capability to provide you with a top-quality product.

We have two manufacturing facilities, one dedicated to constructing Custom Cabinets and the other to Channel Letters. With our years of experience, we have worked towards perfecting a manufacturing process that results in bright, clean, durable, and cost-effective signage. The benefits to purchasing from ESCO go beyond the signage itself.

For over 50 years, ESCO Manufacturing has been constructing quality signs for retail and custom sign companies nationwide. We look forward to bringing our expert assistance, quality and know-how to your next project.

ESCO employs a lean manufacturing tool known as 6S, it stands for Sort, Shine, Standardize, Set, Safety and Sustain. Adopting 6S principles has led to a more well-organized work environment where everyone takes ownership of their work and activities. It also provides for a safer work environment and leaner manufacturing processes.
