Subaru's NEW day/night channel letters

"Huston Electric has contributed to our success for many years by providing professional electrical services for all areas of the plant and property. We more recently worked with their signage division "Huston Signs" on exterior site way-finding and traffic signs, and the addition of large building signage.

Their corporate project planning group is very organized and exceptionally good at answering questions and working with our scheduling needs.
Their site team is knowledgeable and has considerable experience in performance of installation. "
-John Ryan, Project Engineer – Subaru of Indiana Automotive, Inc.

Subaru of Indiana Automotive, Inc. (SIA) is the home of North American production and located in Lafayette, Indiana.Subaru provides a significant impact on our local economy.

Huston Electric has provided contract electrical work for SIA for many years to help keep things running smoothly. Because of the great work that our electricians have provided, SIA began referring to Huston Signs for their signage needs. As SIA has expanded over the years, our sign division has provided and installed various way-finding and regulatory signs throughout the property. These projects take considerable planning and organization by both SIA and Huston to meet the needs of industry and safety guidelines.

SIA just completed construction of their third Service Parts Factory addition in 2021 and Huston Signs had the distinct privilege of providing and installing the large-scale "SUBARU" channel letters and logo that can be seen from I-65. The "SUBARU" letters are 8' tall and the logo is 12'h x 24'w (trust us when we say these are very large compared to most signs). The signage was manufactured by Philadelphia Signs and they did a beautiful job! The logo was made using a digitally printed flex face with tension system built into an aluminum sign cabinet. The 8' letters are referred to as "day/night channel letters" meaning the white acrylic faces of the letters are applied with black perforated vinyl so that during the day the letters appear black, but at night they are white due to the LED illumination that filters through the perforations of the vinyl.

This installation required the use of a crane, two-man bucket truck, and articulating lifts to secure the signage and its LED lighting system. Huston Electric provided approximately 260' feet of electrical conduit to power the LED illuminated signage.

This project was a team effort with approximately 9 months of planning and the installation was provided by 5 sign technicians and 2 electricians over several days. We cannot thank SIA enough for allowing Huston Signs and Huston Electric this great opportunity.
