Quality Service with Personal Integrity

Delta Railroad Construction

Delta Railroad Construction hails from Ashtabula, Ohio and has been family-run for four generations. This industry is as old school as it gets. That means it is tough to find the right people for the strenuous work that we just don’t seem accustomed to anymore, according to Vice President Rick Ryel. We also spoke with President Larry Laurello about a big job just completed in Toronto, which was its first bit of international work.

Today’s Signs for the times

LED Displays by Adaptive Micro Systems

This is our second feature on Adaptive Micro Systems. When speaking with the company two years ago, we talked about its pioneering efforts in LED indoor and outdoor displays, the industry boom in the nineties and the difficulties in 2009-10 which almost crippled the company. The growth of the company had been initially linked to the LED indoor display market, but in 2000, it ventured into the outdoor market before investing heavily in developing electronic billboards. The last two years have been good to Adaptive Micro Systems, and new product lines have been – and will continue to be – developed. We spoke with President Dennis Thums to find out more.
