We Strive To Be The Best.

It is the goal of Mattatall Signs Limited to be Atlantic Canada’s industry leader in the design and manufacturing of dynamic sign products through our commitment to exceptional quality, dedicated customer service and competitive pricing.

We're pleased you've taken your valuable time to check us out. Welcome!

What we do:

Founded in 1979, Mattatall Signs Limited is a leader in the sign industry in Atlantic Canada. We design, manufacture, and install a wide variety of high quality sign solutions.

How we do it:

Our philosophy is simple: "build it right". This means delivering exceptional value for your investment. This means working with you to ensure you get the best possible solution for your needs. We believe this is what will bring you back to us next time.

In our 35 year history one factor has remained the driving force of the company's success: passion. Passion for what we do; passion for quality and integrity in everything we manufacture and in the way we do business. Today, that same passion that drove company president Robert Mattatall to found the firm is still evident, in both himself and the firm's employees.

It all started in 1979 as a two-man operation out of a small shop, and grew steadily over the years to the firm's current team of over 30 talented and experienced individuals, now at its 20,000 sq. ft. facility at 80 Ilsley avenue, Burnside.

It's this mix of people from diverse backgrounds, most of whom have a very long history in this industry, that continues to be at the heart of the firm's success.

Another major strength of MSL is its continual reinvestment in its technology, equipment and training. While some other firms boast "full service capabilities", Mattatall Signs is one of the few companies in the region who actually has the gear and trained personnel to back up such a claim, with one of the best equipped and experienced service and installation crews in Atlantic Canada, and a production floor capable of producing some of the biggest and most complex products built right here in Nova Scotia.
