Icon Identity Solutions – Why Work For Us?


We Manage Your Brand As If It Were Our Own.

Of all the ways to communicate your brand, the places and spaces where you do business provide your most powerful connection to customers and clients. Icon assures that all of your facilities are showcases for your brand image. From the signs that announce your presence to the quality and conditions of every corner of your properties, Icon brands your places and spaces.

Icon’s management, services and specialized manufacturing capabilities allow us to provide support for virtually every facility branding need. Presenting optimal brand presence in the environment means identifying facilities, maintaining them in top condition, repairing and replacing things that aren’t working and managing changes that require construction. We do all of these things taking single source responsibility from curb-to-curb, wall-to-wall and floor-to-ceiling.

undefinedKeeping Your Brand and Ours Green

It is irresponsible to conduct any business, particu­larly one engaged in significant manufacturing activities, without an absolute commitment to the environment. Our business model is built upon a balanced approach to serving all our client needs while safeguarding the long-term good of the planet.

Our green initiatives include sustainability in all phases of Operations, Manufacturing, Maintenance and Management. Sustainable design and manufacturing practices include fabricating energy- efficient signs and lighting systems, extensive recycling, a fleet of trucks that run on ultra-low sulfur diesel, green materials, solvents and chemicals, and attention to lowering our carbon footprint throughout our company’s behavior.

Our initiatives have the potential to save our clients $13 million in the coming year while helping all of us to safeguard the environment.

    There is a strong team environment. The projects are large and challenging and provide an opportunity to learn new things.


    The atmosphere is high energy and fast paced. If you want to coast through your career and not be challenged to grow, don't apply.
