Allegheny Financial Services

Bringing together two local businesses with a long history of operation in the Jamestown, NY community, Dawson worked with Allegheny Financial Services on a custom sign for their office. The local company reached out to us with ambitions of bringing a modern design into their beautiful historic space.


Located in what was once the home to Supreme Court Justice Robert H. Jackson, the Allegheny Financial Services office is full of the late 1800s to early 1900’s decor.  The owner desired contrast of modern design into the beautiful historic space at their Lakewood, NY office.   Dawson has plenty of experience with retrofitting historic buildings with period-correct entrances and building entrances for state-of-the-art skyscrapers like One Vanderbilt in NYC.

The design process was a close collaboration between the customer and the team here at Dawson.  The customer initially presented the concept, and then the Dawson team turned the design into something manufacturable.  This is something that happens regularly at Dawson.  We pride ourselves in bringing our customers’ concepts into production as we did in other projects like Vault Logic and Tiburon Lockers.

“The experience in working with Dawson was very professional.  The individuals I dealt with were of the highest integrity and expertise in the field of metalworking,” said Tom Stafford, owner of Allegheny Financial Services. “Excellent Work!”
