YESCO RECEIVES KEY TO THE LAS VEGAS STRIP
IN HONOR OF 100TH ANNIVERSARY
LAS VEGAS (November 2020) – YESCO, the 100-year-old company known for creating, repairing and maintaining internationally recognizable signs, received a Key to the Las Vegas Strip in honor of its centennial year and contributions to the Southern Nevada landscape at the Nov. 17, 2020 meeting of the Clark County Commission.
Commissioner Michael Naft presented a proclamation and the ceremonial key to YESCO’s President and Chief Executive Officer Michael T. Young, Senior Vice President Jeffrey S. Young and Nathan Young. Michael and Jeffrey represent the third and Nathan the fourth generation of the Young family, whose patriarch, Thomas Young, Sr., founded the company in Ogden, Utah, in 1920.
“YESCO has employed thousands of Southern Nevada citizens since beginning their operation in Las Vegas in 1932,” said Naft. “We are pleased to honor YESCO for ‘100 years of light’ and for their contributions to Clark County and the State of Nevada.”
Celebrating its 100th anniversary, YESCO specializes in the manufacture of custom electric signs, sign maintenance, and out-of-home advertising. Additionally, the company has sign and lighting service franchises throughout North America and operates a sign financing business. Thomas Young founded the company in Ogden, Utah in 1920 after borrowing $300 from his father. YESCO began by offering wall painted advertisements, gold-leaf window lettering and coffin plates. Shortly after with the advent of the neon tube YESCO grew rapidly and was soon manufacturing, installing and servicing signs in Utah, Nevada, Idaho and Wyoming. Headquartered in Salt Lake City, Utah, YESCO has locations throughout the United States and Canada. Experts at the company have designed, manufactured and installed some of the world’s most creative and iconic displays. From dazzling spectaculars on the Las Vegas Strip, to simple but elegant signage for corporate office buildings, YESCO creates award-winning displays for some of the most prestigious brands. Today, the second, third and fourth generations of the founder’s family continue the work of leading the company forward, maintaining the legacy of light that began 100 years ago.
