Solar Panels Help Power Stonehouse Signs

Stonehouse Signs has seen a lot of changes in energy use since their inception in 1863.  There was not much of a carbon footprint for most people living in the days before automobiles and airplanes.  The fifth generation family that successfully runs the company decided they would make a modern-day difference by self-generating a substantial amount of the energy used in their business and showing others that they can do the same.

Our Founder- J.W. Stonehouse

In 1863, the year Stonehouse Signs was founded, a seed was planted that would change workplace safety forever.  That’s over 150 years of a rich and storied history of a company whose lasting contributions in the early years of the industrial safety movement can be measured in number of lives saved.
