Gemini Incorporated, founded in 1963, is celebrating 50 years in business as one of the world’s leading manufacturers in the signage industry.
“Celebrating 50 years is very gratifying,” said Gemini President Frederick Oss. “The teamwork of Gemini employees combined with cutting-edge technology, quality products, timely delivery, and a focus on customer satisfaction is the key to our success. Everyone at Gemini would like to thank our loyal customers who have helped bring Gemini to its 50th year and beyond.”
Jim and Sharon Weinel purchased Gemini Incorporated in 1963, when the business specialized in the manufacture of vacuum-formed plastic products. In 1966, the company began the manufacture of plastic letters, which marked the beginning of its involvement in the sign industry. In 1968, the company survived a devastating fire that destroyed its headquarters in St. Louis Park, Minnesota. By 1972, the company not only had recovered, but also had outgrown its plant and moved its headquarters to Cannon Falls, Minnesota.
From these humble beginnings, Gemini has since undergone dramatic growth to become one of the world’s largest manufacturers of dimensional letters, logos, and plaques in the signage industry. Also during that time, Gemini augmented its popular line of formed plastic letters by expanding into injection molded and laser cut acrylic letters; cast, flat cut and fabricated metal letters; and cast, etched and ADA/Wayfinding plaques.
Despite this growth and the dramatic changes in the way America does business today, Gemini’s philosophy has remained unchanged: To provide the highest quality letters, logos, and plaques, at the lowest possible cost, hassle free, with the quickest delivery in the industry.
Today, Gemini has seven plant locations enabling the company to offer speedy delivery to its customers across North America: Cannon Falls, Minnesota; Decorah, Iowa; Fallon, Nevada; Taylor, Texas; Farmville, Virginia; Neustadt, Ontario and Reynosa, Mexico.
