Cummings Signs in Dothan is signing a multi-million dollar contract with Saturn.
The three-year agreement calls for between 100 and 150 new jobs.
Cummings signs competed with more than a dozen other sign making businesses for this contract. Right now they are contracted for three years to create a new look for Saturn dealerships across North America.
A local sign making business is significantly expanding its workforce in Dothan. Cummings Signs is joining together with International Auto Maker, Saturn, in an agreement that will allow the plant to run at full employment.
President and CEO of Cummings Signs, Stephen Kerr said, "Saturn’s contract over three years plus three or four other contracts, will bring in $150 million dollars in business for Cummings over the next three years."
Cummings has been in the sign making business for more than 60 years and attributes its new success to its top of the line engineering department and affordable services.
Executive Vice President of Cummings Signs, Jim Murray said, “One ability that's unique, was the ability to remodel buildings at a cost effective solution."
Saturn is in the process of refreshing all its facilities in the United States, Canada, and Mexico and chose Cummings Signs because of their innovative and creative sign capabilities.
Saturn’s Director of Retail Chuck Thomson said, “We looked across the country and we selected Cummings because they are the best and the best to work with."
Saturn does not have a dealership in Dothan right now, but the director of retail says they are planning to open up shop sometime in the future.
The new jobs in Dothan are for manufacturing positions. The plant is looking for people with experience in welding, sheet metal workers, painters and wiremen. Anyone with manufacturing experience and a high school diploma is encouraged to apply.
Cummings Signs plans to start hiring for the new positions as early as the first of the year.
