Profile: Ottway Signs
Posted on Tuesday, June 20th, 2017
Like a lot of sign people, Bruce Ottway found his way into the sign business through an interest in art and design. Forty years later finds him still in the business and working with his son Chase. They’ve worked together for the past 15 years, and more recently Chase has taken the reins of the business.
Over the past few years, they’ve added staff and moved into a big, new shop. They’ve expanded the types of work and the services they offer. And they’re facing the challenges that most shops face: restrictive sign ordinances, educating customers and dealing with customer-provided designs.
Located in the southwest corner of Kentucky, Ottway Signs serves the city of Murray, which has a population of about 37,000. They also work in some of the surrounding small towns, doing all types of commercial signs as well as some electrical signs.
