Daikin Applied Americas

Daikin Applied Americas in Faribault, MN

Daikin Applied Americas welcomed the completion of their new pylon sign along I35-W just north of Faribault, Minnesota. Partnering with Indigo Signworks, the double-sided LED illuminated cabinet and 12’ high x 30’5” wide Daktronics GS6-15.85 mm EMCs was completed on February 7, 2020. The pylon sign stands a proud 55 feet in the air and is easily visible for miles from the interstate and roadways surrounding the Daikin Applied Americas site located at 15620 Acorn Trail.

Beginning with an onsite meeting on May 1, 2019, to discuss Daikin’s signage needs at their new property, which was formerly a Malt-o-Meal warehouse, Indigo Signworks’ sales team and designers set out to create premier signage that not only met the Daikin Applied brand standards, but enabled them to showcase the products and superior reputation of Daikin Applied Americas.

A crane test was completed on August 1, 2019, for the Daikin executives and engineers along with the Indigo Signworks sales and installation crew to establish the ideal height, size and location for the pylon sign. Hydrovac excavation began in late January, digging to an engineer-certified depth of 21 feet. The 3-stage steel poles were erected the following week which then enabled Indigo Signworks to install the EMCs and upper cabinet. With pretesting of the signage on the ground before they were installed, additional tests were conducted on February 6th in preparation for the final completion and walk-through with the Daikin North American Director of Facilities, Channel Marketing Specialist and Maintenance & Facilities Engineer the following day. 

Overall, the project was a huge success and Indigo Signworks’ image experts met the dreams, desires and deadline Daikin Applied Americas had established!


Spirits of Nisswa Liquor

Spirits of Nisswa Liquor in Nisswa, MN   

Indigo Signworks unveils our creation for Spirits of Nisswa Liquor in Nisswa, MN. We were approached in early 2017 by the client after their existing sign was destroyed in high winds. (see photo to the right)  With the customers location on MN Hwy 371 and a traffic count off the charts, we discussed the features and benefits of an electronic message center, and a clean logo and layout to optimize their view.  The customer requested a wooden/stone design combination for the sign structure that would tie into their building and maintain the “Up-North/Minnesota Feel”. Ironically, the wood poles used in their previous sign were a primary reason for the sign’s failure.  So, without any hesitation, Indigo Signworks connected with our vendor partners to devise a faux wood and stone structure supported by direct burial & internal steel frame to achieve the look, yet maintain the structural integrity that the client was expecting from Indigo Signworks.  Of course, the LED illuminated cabinet and the Daktronics 15.85mm message center do the heavy lifting when it comes to the end-goal of erecting an effective ID sign, but the wooden look and stone features of the structure really gives the sign the overall feel that the customer desired.

We are proud of our creation and our staff of designers, fabricators and installers and couldn’t be more excited to have been a part of such a fun display!
