100 years of creating Las Vegas’ most iconic signs

Charlie Rundquist remembers how, as a young child, his father would put him in the backseat of his Kaiser and cruise down the Strip or Fremont Street to look at the neon lights and glittering signs of the city’s skyline.

His father would stare at the lights, too. Not in youthful admiration, but to scrutinize signs where a bulb had burst or a light was out or the neon had tarnished.

The weekly field trips for Rundquist were sign patrol assignments for his father, who worked for Yesco, then called the Young Electric Sign Company.

The company is responsible for most of the neon and LED signs in Las Vegas, including Vegas Vic, the Silver Slipper, several panoramic video screens on Las Vegas Boulevard and the newly installed letters on Allegiant Stadium. On Friday, the company will celebrate its 100th anniversary...

YESCO Installs First Signage at Allegiant Stadium

As Allegiant Stadium’s exterior has come into form, the dark tinted glass has drawn various nicknames. Now, however, the stadium will begin to reflect its official name.

The first stadium signage for Allegiant Stadium was beginning to be installed Thursday morning, with the lowercase “a” from Allegiant being affixed to the east facing portion of the $2 billion stadium. Once the sign is installed, it will be tough for anyone passing by the stadium on Interstate 15 to miss the Allegiant name.

Ned Kahn Pages of Salt Project

YESCO is proud of our involvement with environmental sculptor, Ned Kahn, and the Salt Lake City Public Art Program in the city’s public art display. Titled Pages of Salt the project is made of 336 Teflon flags with small die cuts designed to move with the wind. The installation required four holes to be drilled into each flag attached to a concrete wall and 84 large metal brackets to hold the flags. Mr. Kahn’s inspiration came, in part, while noticing a massive wind vortex near the Great Salt Lake spiraling trash up into the air. The flags are meant to mimic paper being blown in the wind.

Big Sky Country
 
 
And that's why Montana is known as Big Sky Country.
 
Reno Arch Turned Pink
 
 
 
In honor of breast cancer awareness month our YESCO Reno team turned the famous Reno Arch pink by changing out nearly 2,000 bulbs. The project was funded by Renown Health and the Nevada Cancer Coalition.
 
YESCO Teamwork for the Win
 
 
Two identical 135′ pylons with 50′ tall LED displays for the Banc of California Stadium had to be fabricated and installed simultaneously on an expedited schedule. And so, we went to work. One was built in Salt Lake City and the other in Phoenix. One of the displays was installed by our installers from the Los Angeles region and the other by our Las Vegas crew.
 
Great show of YESCO’s teamwork and deployment of assets.
