Grimco Inc, is named for its founder William Grimm. From 1875-1970, the company was known as Grimm Stamp and Badge. In the 1950s, Grimm Stamp and Badge evolved from a manufacturer of police and fire badges, branding irons and other metal stampings to a sign manufacturing company focused on the opportunity of traffic signs. In the late 1950’s, Grimco introduced silk-screened traffic signs. Within 15 years, screen printing signs became the industry standard.
By 1980, Grimco began selling signs to distributors and catalog companies. This proved to be successful and in the late 1980s, Grimco extended their product offering to include sign supplies.
In 1999, Grimco had locations solely in St. Louis, MO and Owensville, MO. In order to more efficiently service our customers nationwide, we began opening branches through acquisitions and start ups across the country.
Today, Grimco is a national wholesale sign supply company with coast to coast locations. We focus on distributing quality products to the sign industry. Our offering of sign supplies includes traffic signs and blanks, substrates, digital print media, sign vinyl, inks, sign frames and stands, large and grand format solvent, UV printers and more.
