In 1998, Signature Fencing and Flooring Systems, LLC was founded. Signature is a manufacturer of permanent industrial flooring, modular flooring systems, portable fencing and barricade products for crowd control, and fencing components and accessories.

ADDING AN INNOVATIVE PRODUCT MIX:

Over the next decade, under such brand names as EventDeck®, UltraDeck*, SportPanel®, ArmorDeck®, HexaDeck®, and DuraDeck®, Signature began to dominate the market for temporary fencing and flooring products distributing its products domestically and internationally. As Signature established itself in the event industry, Signature began to expand the scope and breadth of its capabilities and product offerings as it increased its network of respected agents and distributors and expanded its operations across the United States opening warehouses, offices, and manufacturing plants located in New York, Dallas, Baltimore, Los Angeles, and Florida.

EXPANSION:

Globally, Signature expanded its operations overseas by establishing permanent facilities in the United Kingdom providing the company the ability to better service and access international markets such as South America, Europe, and Asia. Its presence overseas has led to the publishing of its brochures and marketing materials in a variety of different languages. To date, Signature has sold its industrial matting, fencing and flooring to over 60 countries worldwide in South America, Europe, Eastern Europe, Africa, Asia, and the Middle East. Since its founding, Signature's products have serviced concerts for Genesis, The Police, Diego Torres, Rascal Flatts, Bon Jovi, Metallica, Shakira, Mana, Jennifer Lopez, and U2 to name a few and high profile events such as the Presidential Inauguration, the London Olympic Games, Hurricane Katrina Disaster Relief, various SuperBowl events, the US Open, the PGA Championship, the Beijing Olympic Games, the Asia Games, the Academy Awards, and several other high profile events that make Signature the iconic brand in the temporary surfacing industry and the largest turf protection company in the world.
