Inspired for Decades
Since 1947, Neokraft has established a reputation as a leading custom sign fabricator in Maine and throughout New England.
Our company produced many iconic signs across Maine during the Golden Era of custom signs in the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s. By the 1980s, custom signs had moved into the modern era and Neokraft was there and ready.
Throughout the years, we’ve worked with clients to breathe new life into classic signs in need of restoration, including the coordination efforts and skilled installers of the iconic “Time and Temperature” building in Portland’s Old Port. In addition, we were particularly proud to be an intricate part of the set for the HBO film “Empire Falls,” which was filmed in Skowheagan, Maine. It included a number of our custom signs with special focus on the Empire Grill.
It's 2019, and we are still going strong. The Neokraft team continues to bring years of experience, ingenuity, and our Maine work ethic to each project. For decades, our attention to detail and craftsmanship have been recognized by businesses, designers, hospitals, schools, colleges and retailers throughout Maine, U.S. and Canada. We have a rich history, yet we continue to grow and adapt to the community, state and regional changes in the sign industry. By staying abreast of new technologies, Neokraft has remained a leader, bringing our clients the quality, service and support required in a competitive market.
Concerned about Our Environment -
Neokraft Signs is a significant consumer of raw materials. Even though we try to maximize each piece we use, there is still a considerable amount of unusable product leftover when producing new signage. When we replace old, unwanted or damaged signs, we need to dispose of those products as well.
Neokraft is mindful of this waste and thus firmly believes in recycling our resources and reducing landfill impact. We sell tons of acrylic/lexan (plastics), aluminum and steel scraps to recyclers every year.
"Recycling is one of the most powerful ways any company can help clean up and preserve Maine's environment and our planet."
What can’t be recycled is fluorescent lighting and therefore needs to be disposed. Due to a small amount of mercury in each bulb, a recycling law with strick regulations is imposed. For the past several years, when we build new or retro fit an old sign, we only use LED lighting. Converting from fluorescent to LED, makes our clients happy that their signs are more energy efficient, easier to maintain, reduces costs, and emits no harmful UV.
Please join Neokraft in recycling whenever possible.
