Our History

HISTORY

Signs By Knight was established in 1977 by Gary and Letetia Knight. Gary built up his business slowly while working as a Victorian police officer, when he had enough clients he took the leap and started the business from home and left the police force. It wasn’t long before he put on his first apprentice and started renting a shed.

The business kept growing and in 1980 they built their first dedicated factory / sign shop. You will see from our photos many changes in designs and styles of our Signs By Knight Logo and vehicles. In 1989 Tim, their son, started working with the business, by then it was quite a large company. Tim started in engraving then moved to vinyl, then spraying and manufacturing and onto production management and sales. Tim has always had a passion for illuminated signage and in 1992 Gary purchased a Neon bending business in Melbourne where Tim went and completed his training they then brought the plant back to the Sign shop in Kane Road.

In April 2008 Gary and Letetia’s son Tim and his wife Tracey purchased the business and continue the tradition started with Mum & Dad that has seen the company grow into one of regional Australia’s most well known and respected sign companies. The business plan is heavily focused on continuing the traditions, work ethic and open mind into future technologies. Tim & Tracey are proud owners of Sign By Knight and are happy to be taking it in to the next generation and only hope they can be as successful and carry on the wonderful reputation that Signs By Knight has experienced over the past 35 years.
