About Testrite

Testrite customers recognize the importance of integrating graphics into their Visual Merchandising, Communication and Presentation environments. Graphics grab attention and convey messages in a tasteful and effective manner.

Our dedicated, experienced staff of inside sales people, project managers and designers work closely with customers to ensure project success. We pride ourselves on listening carefully. Challenge us. Leverage our 100 plus years of experience, know how, and existing tooling.

Testrite has earned an extraordinary reputation for quality and reliability. Durability, clean design, and providing value have always been emphasized, a win for our customers.

Because we manufacture in the U.S., our supply chain is shorter, "greener," and we routinely provide customizable solutions quickly and cost efficiently, whether assemblies or complete products.

From project inception to production and roll out with full logistic support, Testrite is ready to work with a sense of urgency to get the job done well.

On behalf of the entire Testrite staff, we wish to thank you for your past and future business.
