Signex Manufacturing Inc. currently has the largest sign manufacturing facility in Manitoba and is also a leader in sign technology. Having started out in the sixties as Pankratz Electric, many businesses approached this established company with requests for signage type products. Pankratz Electric responded making inroads into the new business of sign manufacturing much to the delight of the merchants.

Excellent management and a commitment to embrace new techniques and materials eventually led Signex to emerge as a separate entity in the early eighties, having now operated with growing success for well over twenty-five years. Signex today is a solution oriented, highly adaptive company specializing in all aspects of sign manufacturing.


We feature a professional sales team, an award winning design team, and a highly skilled team of service technicians, fabricators and installation specialists. We are a C.S.A. approved sign shop and as such, we closely follow our projects from concept to completion to ensure the highest standards not only of quality but safety as well. We strive to ensure the same confidence in our clients as we have in ourselves as a company.

Signex employees share a combined sign manufacturing experience of over a century and are ready to accept any challenge our clients have to offer. Always innovating and riding the cutting edge of new sign technology, we at Signex are eager to help you with any and all of your signage challenges, big or small.


Signex currently has over 25,000 square feet of manufacturing and administration/design floor space with a newly renovated boardroom and sample room. We feature state of the art vinyl cutting and digital reproduction technology. Our Ecosolvent cutter/printer can reproduce high resolution digital photography or graphics onto vinyl, flex, or paper substrates for indoor or outdoor applications.

An added advantage to the Ecosolvent unit is its use of non-toxic inks preventing harmful VOCs from forming during the printing process making it the environmentally friendly choice. Our large modern plant amply facilitates every aspect of the sign making process with the speed and precision our customers demand. Machinery, metal and plastic fabrication, painting, wiring, cutting of the multiple face materials and of course the actual graphic reproduction and application are all performed in house guaranteeing a superior product.

We would like to thank you and Signex for your friendly, professional services provided to us at Greendale Estate.
As our project consisted of an exterior monument sign, way finding, directory board and donor board each element was designed to meet our specific needs. Your attention to detail while meeting our needs and deadlines was greatly appreciated. We would recommend Signex to others.

I want to express our satisfaction with the timely service, production and installation of our multiple signs for our new Winnipeg Showroom. The installation crew took the time to make sure that we were completely satisfied with the outcome while they were on site. We expect to be using SIGNEX in the near future for our other locations throughout Western Canada.

Investors Group Field

The experiences, trials and tribulations that go along with opening a new stadium can only be comprehend by those that have gone through it. Since neither the Winnipeg Football Club or Signex had gone through opening a new stadium the ability to ensure a proper opening with well thought out, planned and strategic signage was a testament to the vision and leadership that Signex has accrued through their previous clients. The ability to work with us and adapt to the changing landscape of the needs of the stadium and both the Winnipeg Football Club and the University of Manitoba Bison’s Football program. The staff of Signex, both on the ground and administratively care about the project and have the clients best interest at heart. It has been a pleasure to work with Signex on this historic opening of Investors Group Field and I look forward to working with them in the future.
