Jean Lapointe founded Kalitec in a small garage in Laval, Quebec. The company’s sole focus at the time was high-quality road signs.

Among the other selling points: easy upkeep using basic tools and a structure that complies with all major road and safety standards.

After 10 years of R&D, Kalitec introduced Print ArmorTM, a semi-gloss thermoplastic protective layer that greatly increases a sign’s resistance to weather-induced damage and vandalism.
