Our Story

Read More

Margaret (Cathy) Vogel, founder of Sunrise Safety Services Inc., started her business in June of 1995 in an 8’x12’ room in her basement. She started with $35,000.00, 4 employees, a 1979 Mercedes and a 1987 Ford Truck purchased from BARC. Cathy and her employees worked hard for many years installing pavement markings, doing traffic control and striping the highways. Sunrise was making a lasting impression within the Baltimore construction industry.

Norman Vogel, Cathy’s husband, had retired as a camera man for WJZ TV and wanted to get more involved in her business. After some research, he had found that there were only a few sign shops in the state of Maryland. Norman planned and designed what is now our Sunrise Sign Shop. Norman has since retired from Sunrise but the business has grown tremendously.

Sunrise is now housed in a 30,000 sf facility with 125 employees, a fleet of 47 Vehicles and is the largest minority owned sign fabrication shop manufacturer in the State of Maryland. We are capable of fabricating banners and stickers from any design presented to us along with temporary and permanent signage. Types of signs include traffic signs, road construction signs,  custom signs and graphics.

We have become more than just another local traffic safety control company and sign fabricator. Our teams of dedicated employees are more than co-workers, we’re a family. Every member of our team strives collectively to make Sunrise the BEST in the business. We operate and supply the tri-state area on many different projects. Chances are, if you drove past a local work area, your personal safety was already in our capable hands!
