Marion YMCA gets name change and Huston was there to help!

Have you ever heard the saying “A referral is the best form of flattery”?  We are so grateful to the Kokomo YMCA for recommending our services to the Marion YMCA.  The Marion YMCA underwent a name change recently from “Star Financial YMCA” to “Star Financial Coliseum”.  Huston’s Sign Division delivered on updating the exterior channel letters by re-facing the “Star” logo and replacing the “YMCA” letters with “Coliseum”.  We consider it a privilege to work with the local YMCA’s on their re-brandings and are grateful they have chosen to work with Huston!

Testimonial from Kyle Strohman, CEO of Grant County YMCA
Working with Huston Electric for our sign change was the best decision we could have made.
YMCA of the USA had initiated a national rebranding initiative. Here in Marion, Indiana we had the challenge of meeting the branding standards yet continuing to honor and respect a local corporate partner whose name was on the outside of our building. From my first conversation with Huston they took the time to understand the complicated nature of this project. We had multiple options still being debated internally, a tight timeline, a tighter budget, and two companies’ graphic guidelines to fully understand. Unlike other companies, Huston quickly created the needed mock ups, quoted the project at a reasonable rate, and most importantly followed through on every promise they made.

My favorite story was during installation. The project was set to begin 5 weeks ahead of schedule, but then famous Indiana weather struck. Unlike other companies who would have used the additional time as an excuse, Samantha quickly updated me on the project status, even apologizing for a delay on a project they were weeks ahead of schedule.  It was clear to me they took great pride in their customer service, and treated this job like it was their most important.
