Poblocki completes first round of sign installations at Trump Tower

West Allis-based Poblocki Sign Co. recently completed the first round of installation of interior signage at the Trump International Hotel & Tower in downtown Chicago.

The company’s crews have installed all of the signs, built at the company’s headquarters and manufacturing facility in West Allis, on the first 50 floors of the tower. They will return to Chicago later this summer to install signs on the remaining 42 floors still under construction.

Poblocki will install the tower’s external signs as well.

Once Trump Tower is completed this summer, Poblocki will have fabricated and installed more than 3,000 signs in the building.

Poblocki won a contract to build signs for the first phase of the new tower after direct negotiations with Donald Trump, who is personally overseeing the most critical aspects of the project.

“This is one of the most well-known building projects in the Midwest, and Poblocki understands that high-quality signage is a priority,” said Paul Poblocki, vice president and general manager of Poblocki Sign Co. “We have a fantastic team of project managers and fabricators who worked on this project and produced signage for Mr. Trump and his guests that is visually appealing and fabricated to the highest standards.”

Poblocki has designed, built and installed some of the largest and most visible signs in the Milwaukee and Chicago areas, including Miller Park, Soldier Field, Northwestern Mutual and the Harley-Davidson Museum.
