Our history

Screenshot (145)_edited.jpg

Thomas and Shirley Johnson, both Kentucky natives, moved to California in the mid 1960's to escape the cold weather and offer their young family with a new opportunity on the west coast. Thomas went to work for a local sign company before starting his own sign painting business, Tom Johnson Signs. After Thomas and Shirley's sons, Mike, Mark, Roger, and Greg, graduated high school, they went to work for the family business and began finding great opportunity in the electrical sign market.

They began purchasing electrical signs from a wholesale manufacturer with success, before that manufacturer eventually went out of business, leaving them without a reliable source. After a little luck finding a quality new vendor, they decided to sell the business to start their own wholesale electrical sign manufacturing company to fill the void and lack of reliable sources in the Western U.S. This was the beginning of CalSign Wholesale.
