Our History

With more than 35 years of experience, trust the experts to help support your identity today!

We are the engineering and program management behind many successful structures, letters, and cabinets that identify today's modern businesses. We support your identity.

Elrod Engineering LLC was originally established as Elrod & Company in 1983 by Ron Elrod, P.E. as a sole proprietorship providing professional engineering services for a range of structural projects, including commercial signs. In time, one partner, Richard F. Glascock II P.E., purchased the ownership share from the other and the company became Elrod & Company, LLC, once again a sole proprietorship, on July 1, 2001.


Glascock loved his business like a father and treated his employees as if they were family. His honesty, diligence, and generosity became the soul of the company. Following his untimely death in 2011, the employees dedicated themselves to keeping Elrod & Company, LLC running and growing in Glascock's memory. Rob Alley purchased the assets of the company in 2013, and renamed the new entity Elrod Engineering LLC, paying tribute to the rich history and legacy of the company, as well as signaling a new phase in the history of Elrod.

Today, as the company moves eagerly into a new and exciting phase, Elrod has added general structural engineering to its expertise- but it will always be a primary mission to provide the sign industry with conscientious design and specifications effectively established for the benefit and safety of the public. 

Welcome to the next generation of Elrod Engineering- We Support Your Identity!

Our Values

Core Purpose

Safely Built Structures lead to unlimited opportunities because we are all important to someone.

Our Core Values are a non-negotiable set of values that guide everything we do. They are not aspirational, they are experiential. They emerged from an employee survey that we did, where we asked all employees what they thought were the core values that we already lived out as a company, and these were by far the most common five. Basically, this is how we do what we do. We aren't perfect, but we aim to live these out every day:

  • Do Hard Things for the Right Reasons

  • Think Outside the Box

  • Don't Just Solve, Teach

  • Invest in Each Other

  • Carry the Load

Ask us about our values and what we do as we live them out.
