Serving Atlantic Canada since 1979 (and beyond)

The story begins further back than you may think...

Hansen Signs first opened its doors back in the early 70's by Mr. Elmer Hansen along with his sons: Norman, Eldon, Brian, Jackie and Gary. Dennis at that time was a body man by trade, custom painting hot rods in the empty bay next door. In the Late 70's, all of the family with the exception of Dennis moved out West. Dennis stayed behind to pursue his passion of operating his own business.

The Hansen Signs that you know today began back in 1979 when Dennis, an entrepreneur in his own right, recognized that there was a need for more options for local businesses to advertise. He then started fabricating, importing and selling mobile signage around the Moncton area. With only a few employees working part-time along his side, one of which was his wife Darlene, this venture quickly grew into a hustling, full time operation at that time known as "Hansen Sign Rentals and Installations". 

Knowing that he would need some extra hands on deck to propel the business even further in the right direction, Dennis brought on his oldest son Nick to give a hand. Having always been interested in the business throughout his time growing up watching his father and team, he knew the business had potential. Nick received a degree in Graphic Design and Marketing which helped him advance the company through the digital age which has since revolutionized the sign industry. Hansen Signs now has over 27 employees and has grown to become one of the largest Sign companies in Atlantic Canada. 


In the last year, The Eddy Group Ltd has opened two new Branches with the latest one opening early February in Kentville Nova Scotia. In December, we contacted Hansen Signs to order another sign like the one they designed for our new Branch in Dieppe. And from the first time I spoke with Jessica, dealing with everything from size, design, permits to when the sign would be delivered. Hansen Signs always returned my calls and answered any questions that I had, and when it came time to install our new sign, their installers were professional and pleasant to deal with. Thanks again Jessica to you and your team.
