Chicago, IL (PRWEB) July 24, 2013

Affiliated Resources, Inc. (ARI), known as “The Moving Message Sign Company”, opened their doors in 1982 and has been selling LED signs for over 30 years making them the oldest LED sign company in the U.S.. They have seen many sign companies come and go in the LED sign industry, and they have dealt with many LED sign manufacturers as well. Several years ago, they discovered Vantage LED and have been astounded with the innovative products and real human support. Because of their enthusiasm, and more importantly, their boost in sales and overall performance, Affiliated Resources was rewarded with a new LED sign from Vantage LED to replace an old Optec Display on their main identification sign.

Bruce Murray, Regional Sales for Vantage LED, stated, “I’ve worked closely with Affiliated Resources for some time and have always found them to be very professional and knowledgeable about LED displays, but more importantly, very concerned that their customers receive the best product and training available. Their reputation in the industry speaks for itself.”

Jack Gordon of Affiliated Resources, Inc. exclaimed, “Vantage LED is great. I have been in this business almost ten years. Chris Ma [CEO & Founder] and his team make a quality product and back it up with outstanding support.

Stephen Stillman, Owner, explained, “Most people have never purchased these products before and don’t even know what questions to ask. Our expert customer service staff will answer all of their questions and help to guide them through the process of selecting the right LED sign for their business.”

Mr. Stillman continued, “In 1982, when we first started in this business, nobody knew what to call them: Moving Message Signs, LED Signs, Scrolling Signs, Electronic Signs, Message Centers, Reader Boards, Moving Signs, Computerized Signs, Programmable Displays, etc. We decided to call them just what they are: MOVING MESSAGE SIGNS. Since then, many companies have come into the industry and most of them are long gone. We are still here. We like to think it is because of the way we treat our customers.”
