Family owned since 1942, Metro Signs & Lighting has grown over the past 75 years from a small installation firm into a full-service sign and lighting solution company. John and Paul Deters purchased Metro Detroit Signs in 1996 from the Randall family, adding custom design and fabrication for local clients shortly afterwards. As our client base grew and more customers were looking for us to provide ongoing maintenance on both signs and lighting for multiple locations, we opened an office in Grand Rapids and changed our name to Metro Signs & Lighting. In the summer of 2016 our team moved into a new facility on Kaltz Avenue in Warren. We now have the facilities, project management, design and field technical staff to support our clients throughout all of southern Michigan.

Resourceful: Can-do attitude. Creative Designs and solutions. Embrace change – open to new ideas/methods/technology.
Caring: Family atmosphere. Humility that comes from being a part of something larger. Trusted teammates. Fair and honest dealings with all stakeholders – customers, suppliers, team members. Positive influences in our community. Shared success – contributions are recognized and profits are shared. Safety and quality are never compromised.
Gritty: Play to win – competitive, hard working risk takers who are not satisfied with the status quo. Resilient. Sweat the details. Driven by a commitment to exceed customer expectations. Sense of urgency to deliver successful projects. Strive for continuous personal and company growth. Accept responsibility and commit to exceptional performance.
