In 1952, John Behrends recognized the versatility and ageless appeal of metal signage, and decided to build a business. Over half a century later, though our product lines continue to expand, metal casting remains our mainstay. Sand casting is a process that is thousands of years old, reaching back to before the first century. At Behrends, we’re proud to continue this age-old tradition while helping our field to evolve by using cutting edge technology and the best available materials. Metal is timeless.
