Poyant Acquires Dion Signs

Dion Signs has served Rhode Island and Massachusetts for more than 35 years.

Poyant (New Bedford, MA) announced that it has acquired Dion Signs, a custom sign manufacturer based in Rhode Island specializing in the design, fabrication, installation and maintenance in the retail, restaurant/entertainment and health services sectors throughout Rhode Island and Massachusetts.

Brothers Ray, Richard and Ron Dion established Dion Signs in 1989, following in their grandfather, Alcide Mandeville’s, footsteps as founder of Mandeville Signs in 1917. Dion Signs ultimately developed into one of the largest sign manufacturers in Rhode Island.

“The Dions have always maintained a high level of integrity and professionalism within our industry. We are grateful to have them join our team” said Richard Poyant, president of Poyant. “Combining our two company’s skills and experience under one roof will bring a higher level of capability to all of our customers.”

“Our families have worked together for more than 20 years, through the Rhode Island Sign Contractors Association and the Northeast States Sign Association, supporting and strengthening our industry,” said Ray Dion, senior account executive for the combined company. “And now we will work together to provide for our customers.”
