Hernando business Accuform Signs expands, expects to add jobs

BROOKSVILLE — Accuform Signs, which manufactures more than 120,000 products including safety signs, labels and warning tags, is expanding again, the Hernando County Office of Business Development announced Friday.

Located at the airport industrial park, Accuform has agreed to buy a nearby 30,000-square-foot building, bringing its total operation to 97,000 square feet.

The County Commission will review an agreement Tuesday to let Accuform connect the buildings with a pathway.

Accuform employs 225 people and plans to increase staffing by 20 in the next year, officials said. The company sells products to distributors in North America, South America and Asia, and has been in operation since 1976.

"We have the biggest and the most comprehensive catalog in the industry," said company president Dave Johnson.

Much of Accuform's success stems from being customer focused and the use of new technologies, said Johnson. Technology is fully integrated across the company, from a high-tech production line to marketing through the use of iPhones and webinars.

In addition, as public safety laws change, Accuform has responded quickly with products like the "No-Texting" signs it now sells for companies and municipalities.
