We all must do our part

Security Signs has used green practices in our office and shop for years.  In the last year, we have committed ourselves to a new green initiative by actively searching for ways to further reduce our environmental impact. 

With the formation of our “green team,” we have identified and put into motion a plan for all employees to follow. 

From simple things, like locating recycling stations throughout the building to the more complex, like installing infrared heating in the shop, Security Signs is making the effort to lower our carbon footprint.
