About Us

American Lift & Sign Service was founded in 1985 by Mike Gardner and Pat Schuster. Both owners have a long history in the sign industry and are involved in the day-to-day operation in production and installation as well as management. Our Goal has always been to Provide “Honest Reliable Service at a Fair Price”.

We have no full time outside sales staff and have maintained a steady growth in both total volume & profits for the past 32 years.

We are located at 6958 N. 97th circle in Omaha, Nebraska. Our facility includes 15,000 square feet of office and production in a 30,000 square foot flex space building. American Lift shares ownership of the property with long time business associates from Grinnell, Iowa and Bluffton, South Carolina.

We have a very low turnover rate with the average employee tenure at 15+ years. We credit the low turnover rate to fair wages and benefits but also to a safe & comfortable work environment. We are very proud of our safety record which is among the finest in the industry.

We firmly believe that the quality of our employees is the strength of our company. Our fabricators are skilled craftsmen. Each takes pride in the custom fabrication of high quality hand crafted signs and advertising displays. Our fabrication facility includes a full sheet metal shop, computer controlled router and vinyl production, as well as a quality paint facility. Certified welders are on staff in both production and installation.

Our highly trained Installation crews are respected in the industry for both efficiency and quality of workmanship. Each installation crew includes a licensed Journeyman Sign Erector to assure that your signs will be installed safely and professionally.
