Neon sign equipment and electric sign component manufacturer Transco To Go, LLC Columbia, South Carolina, and the assets of Jupiter, Florida-based Ventex Technology, Inc., a leading manufacturer outdoor sign lighting products, have been acquired by a private Texas-based investor group. Both companies will be integrated and will continue to operate as Ventex Technology, LLC.

The investor group led by J. Bryan Vincent and his brother Blake Vincent, are partners at Principal LED, an LED component manufacturer based in San Angelo, Texas. Henry A. Brown, III will assume the position as president and will lead the combined company’s day-to-day operations.

“This acquisition offers sign manufacturers a comprehensive stream of lighting products and leading edge technology sold through a well-established sign supply distributor network throughout North America,” says Bryan Vincent.

Henry A. Brown, III will assume the position as president and will lead the combined company’s day-to-day operations.

Creston W. Brown, currently president of Transco To Go, is very excited about teaming up with the Vincent brothers. “I was born and raised in this business, so working with Blake and Bryan is like working with my extended family. Their drive, dedication and sheer innovation to this industry is second to none, and there will be a lot more innovation driven by this company,” Brown says.

According to Blake Vincent, there are still details to be worked out over the next few months. “The opportunities presented by this acquisition position us not only to maintain our current leadership in the manufacturing and delivery of quality sign lighting systems, but will significantly expand our position and scale of operation, all of which are demonstrative of our long-term commitment to serve the electrical sign industry,” says Vincent.
