Interstate Logos, L.L.C.
In June of 1988, Lamar Advertising Company formed a new division, Interstate Logos, to
diversify its operations into another type of sign business - Contract Logo Signing. Interstate
Logos has now grown to employ over 100 full-time individuals, currently managing the operation
of 22 logo sign companies, 12 TODS operations, a logo sign construction company, and a logo sign
fabrication operation. Additionally, several consulting engineering firms and consulting engineers
work with Interstate Logos and its local subsidiaries.
Each of the 8 states that have converted from a state-run to a contract program are operated by
subsidiaries of Interstate Logos. As part of privatization, several of these states modified their
criteria, allowed for expansion into areas of their states which were previously restricted, such as
urban areas, and increased their participation fees. Without exception, program participation has
increased in every state where Interstate Logos converted a logo sign program from a state-run logo
sign program to a contract or privatized logo sign program.
The prior and continued success of Interstate Logos is attributed to numerous factors, namely, the
qualified and experienced staff the Company employs, the autonomy of each local office, and Interstate
Logos’ understanding of the elements necessary to establish and maintain successful signing programs.
Our history of completion record in the 22 states where we currently operate, and the work completed
in the Province of Ontario, Canada, is indicative of the ability of Interstate Logos to manage several
projects simultaneously using our locally selected subcontractors.
Since June of 1988, Interstate Logos, as the prime contractor, has been ultimately responsible for
overseeing its subcontractors in the construction, replacement, and/or overlay of over 15,000 mainline
logo sign background panels and over 15,000 ramp logo sign background panels at a construction cost in
excess of $115 million. In addition, Interstate Logos has constructed over 10,000 TODS structures at a
construction cost in excess of $25 million.
Interstate Logos is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Lamar Advertising Company. Lamar has outdoor
advertising profit centers located through 44 states, Canada, and Puerto Rico, employing over 3,200
people. In 2007, Lamar’s operations generated annual gross revenue in excess of $1 billion.
