ESCO Manufacturing Family Ownership Transfer

From Mark Stein, father, to Stuart Stein, his son, scheduled for Feb. 4.




ESCO Manufacturing (Watertown, SD) has announced another ownership transition of the company within the Stein family. Having owned and operated the business since 1988, Mark Stein will be retiring after 40 years with ESCO. The transition to the third generation, Stuart Stein (Mark s son), will occur on Feb. 4. First-generation owner Clint Stein started the business and eventually sold the business to his son, Mark.

According to a statement released by the company, Mark Stein indicated his biggest accomplishment over the last 40 years has been expanding ESCO’s product lines to include steel and aluminum custom-shape cabinets, pan and flex faces, and channel letters, among other sign options. One of the biggest challenges he sees for the next generation is adapting to the rapid changes in the sign industry as a result of new technology and global competition.

Stuart Stein has worked at ESCO for almost six years. I’m looking forward to the challenge of carrying on the legacy of Clint and Mark, he said.  ESCO has become a fixture within the sign industry and is known for producing a quality product, thanks in large part to our loyal and tenured staff. Expanding ESCO’s market share will be one of my top priorities.

Stuart Stein will be at the ISA Sign Expo in Orlando in April 2020 at booth 2500.
