Signal Restoration Services held its 50th anniversary celebration at the Michigan Science Center in Detroit. Signal restored the local landmark in 2021 when two sewer wastewater backup incidents forced the center to temporarily suspend its operations.

Event attendees were invited to explore the Signal-sponsored exhibit called “POPnology” that blends Hollywood, pop culture and science.

“All of us at Signal are deeply honored to serve the restoration industry as one of the largest and most respected disaster restoration companies in the U.S.,” said Signal co-CEO Mark Davis. “We have deep roots in Detroit and want to thank the community and the Michigan Science Center for being part of the Signal family and for celebrating with us tonight as we reflect on our rich legacy and look forward to Signal’s next 50 years.”

Signal officials were joined at the event by employees, clients, prospects, and members of the Detroit business, philanthropic, and government communities. Special guests in attendance included Detroit Chamber of Commerce chief operating officer Tammy Carnrike, and Wayne County Executive Warren Evans, as well as Chris and Barb Ammann, previous owners of Signal Building Company, the predecessor to Signal Restoration Services.

“We are thrilled to celebrate 50 years of delivering relentless customer service to clients with an event at the Michigan Science Center in Detroit — our hometown and headquarters,” said Signal co-CEO Frank Torre. “What began as a small community restoration company 50 years ago has grown into a commercially focused restoration business that consistently and relentlessly responds whenever and wherever disaster strikes, and also supports the people and communities we serve in their most fragile times.”

Signal will continue its golden anniversary celebration with events in New York City and Miami this fall.
