Construction of the Willett Center Exhibits Begins
Contact: Michael Kusch, 315-336-4448
A fabrication contract has been awarded for building the exhibits for the Marinus Willett Center at Fort Stanwix National Monument. Color-Ad Inc. of Manassas, Virginia will construct the exhibits at their shop in Manassas, Virginia and then ship them to Rome for installation. Established in 1962, Color-Ad began as a small two person sign shop creating all types of hand lettered signs. Over the years the company grew and expanded its in-house capabilities, including, but not limited to, electrical signs in the 1970's, exhibits in the 1980's, digital printing in the 1990's and 3-dimensional topographical maps at the turn of the century.
