Our Proud Heritage

The company was started by Rolland Nauman, who began his career as a sign painter for the Thomas Cussak Sign Company in 1917. In 1928, Rollie was recruited to work for Black Sign Co., and upon the untimely death of the company’s owner, Chauncey Black, Rollie started his own business – Nauman Sign Co. in 1931.

Since its founding, Nauman Outdoor has been owned by four generations of Naumans. Rollie’s son Ralph joined the company in 1945 and purchased it from his father in 1963. After returning from Vietnam in 1966, Ralph’s son Jerry joined the company and later purchased it in 1974. Now, the company is owned by Jerry’s son Jay who joined the company in 1995 and bought it from Jerry in 2001. We have a proud tradition of service, knowledge and integrity that we put to work for our customers every day.

Don’t just take our word for it! We have received recognition for our business practices and our ethics from local community organizations.
