Hello! I’m Gary
My professional experience started in March 1989. I started at a company Sign Factory as a co-op through Bethlehem Vo-Tech. After 4 years of working for Sign Factory, I had reached a plateau. My bosses, the late MaryEllen Kemmerer (2003) & Lois Stofko, had taught me well. I hated to leave but I need to learn more in the sign industry. Then I stared in July 1993 working for SignCorp. Chuck Stehly hired me. I had the opportunity to learn from other experts, in other areas of signage, including dimensional signage(sandblasted & carved) as well as Neon. Thank you chuck for the opportunity. Next I was onto Spandex USA, an interior sign systems fabricator. Now known as Clarke Systems. Here at Clarke Systems I learned a lot about interior sign systems. My positions grew into the Head of Tech Support for the sign software & hardware we sold. I would travel all up and down the east coast training other sign companies on how to use the software & hardware they had just purchased. Then finally I decided in May 1999 to start my adventure of the unknown, self employment. After 3 years on my own, MaryEllen (owner of Sign Factory) had some very serious health issues. So in February 2003, her husband Bobby, approached me about selling her business to me. MaryEllen’s passed away on May 7, 2003. She is greatly missed. I then partnered up with my father to purchase Sign Factory, which was started by MaryEllen & her friend Lois back in 1976. I was proud to keep the name Sign Factory and just ad the G&L’s.
