Truxes Company Founders

Bill Truxes epitomizes a true American patriot. As a young, idealistic man of 24 years old, Bill joined the Army Air Corps and became a B-24 (Liberator) bomber pilot. While serving in World War II, he was shot down during the Battle of the Bulge and became a POW in Germany in 1944. He was liberated at the end of the war.

With his beliefs and ideals intact he returned to Nebraska. He and Mildred, his devoted wife, started their family of six children, two boys and four girls. Supporting the family, Bill worked at Swift & Company for over 30 years rising to a Vice President in Chicago. After his retirement in 1975 he and Mildred founded the Truxes Company.

Since then the company has grown and changed, with all six children playing a part at one time or another. To this day, Bill maintains his involvement with the company and continues to apply those same ideals that have guided his life to the business—which has made it the success it is today.

Embossed ADA Metal Signage Truxes uses the same quality standards in making general ADA signage as we do for our elevator signs. The signs are made from quality Stainless Steel and other alloys that make the signs nearly indestructible – including an extended life span and resistance to vandalism.

Reverse Etch ADA signs Computer design allows us the freedom to design exactly what your customers want with the quality of a solid stainless sign. Special attention is given to letters and Braille which proves to be an integral part of the sign. These signs are created from a solid one-piece construction, making the “reverse etch” ADA signs nearly indestructible – which provides a lasting beauty and endurance in all environments.

Polymer ADA signage Truxes can design a photo polymer sign for you or work from your cad files. Utilizing Novacryl polymer along with Mathews computer paint matching system – your customers are assured they are getting the look they want.

We use the industry standard materials and extruded frames in addition to raster Braille – providing quality signage at a reasonable cost.
