The LNI Journey

We are a fourth-generation, family-owned industry leader with the capability to handle everything from multi-location national rollout campaigns to one-of-a-kind architectural masterpieces. We manage all aspects of design, engineering, fabrication, and implementation. In our Southern California workshop, we preserve the art of metalworking while utilizing cutting-edge technology.


Local Neon is incorporated as LNI Signs as Bus' son, Scott Blakely, takes over, transitioning the company into a custom sign fabricator. LNI Sign’s clients include Disney, Santa Monica Pier, and Nike.


LNI's focus shifted from the sign industry to bus shelter manufacturing for municipalities. Scott's expertise in engineering and metalwork allowed LNI to excel in design/build architectural challenges. While still serving large clients like Daewoo Motors and Disney, Scott's primary focus was on winning work in the transportation augmentation industry.
