As an institution dedicated to timeless contribution and service, FSG is always seeking to invest in mutually beneficial and profitable relationships that will do more to empower others to reach their full potential.
With this vision in mind, FSG is excited to share its most recent investment in Capital Architectural Signs.
Capital Architectural Signs is an Austin-based sign company with more than 25 years of experience in producing high-end wayfinding and ADA signage. CAS has worked with numerous designers and architects to provide quality signs and graphics solutions to Health Care, Educational, Commercial, Residential and Corporate entities.
FSG’s experience in traditional exterior and interior signage combined with CAS’ experience and expertise in wayfinding and ADA signage will create a winning combination for everyone.
FSG is now able to handle the entire signage package for a facility– from the largest roadside exterior signage to the smallest sign over the hand soap in the bathroom, FSG will be able to take care of it all!
When asked about this investment, David Jacobs, FSG Signs Vice President said,
“The complementary component of our two companies is truly amazing. CAS manufactures interior wayfinding signage – something we currently subcontract. Bringing all their capabilities in-house gives FSG Signs a unique place in the market. It is really exciting to think about what we can accomplish together.”
Michael Soheili, co-founder and general manager of CAS elaborates on this idea by saying,
“Combining (CAS) set of skills with FSG’s capabilities under one roof will enable the resulting company to be a one-stop shop for a diverse customer base. Combined resources and the resulting synergy will enable FSG to offer a more comprehensive sign solution to a broader market.”
FSG’s CEO, Bill Graham shared,
“It really is exciting to think about being the best for our customers. That is our goal. We want to be the best and make the right choices in doing that. I think this is the right choice.”
CAS will move its production equipment and personnel to FSG’s facility off Metric Blvd. in North Austin.
With this acquisition, FSG gains a full suite of equipment and expertise including:
- A photopolymer machine for creating signage with raised lettering & braille
- A laser cutting and etching booth which allows for flame polishing and complicated design executions
- A wide-format flatbed printer that will allow FSG to be able to offer full size graphics printed on a large variety of surfaces and materials
- A graining machine that creates the grain look on metal finishes on metal finishes.
- A sandblasting booth for fatiguing and restoration
- Additional router tables, paint booths, welders, etc. to add to FSG’s existing capabilities
Final details continue to be worked on, but both companies plan to officially begin working on sign projects together on November 1st, 2022.
