Joe Gore was raised in Evansville, IN. where he painted murals on the high school walls, received write ups in local newspapers, and won awards for his art projects. Joe also learned how to airbrush designs on motorcycles, cars, boats, and the word was starting to get around about his skills. In 1984, Joe Gore started Spectrum Sign and Advertising Company. After several years of mastering his craft he moved to Bowling Green, KY in 1988. He went to work for a sign company as a graphics artist. One day the boss handed him a roll of fabric and rope and told him to go put a cover on the awning frame at a local business. After two days of cutting, pulling, tugging and wrapping the job was done. Joe vowed that his first awning experience would also be his last. Yet,he soon found himself doing graphics for an awning manufacturer. The next ten years were spent learning all aspects of the awning business from the ground up. In 2000 Joe partnered with a local advertising company expanding their operation to include awning manufacturing. After a few years Joe decided to open his own business, and in Janurary of 2005, USAwning was created.
The first year was rough, with Joe doing virtually all the work on his own, only calling in help when needed for installations. Word of mouth soon spread that “USAwning Company provided the best quality, attention to detail, and service around". His business has grown every year since and now boasts of a staff with over 50 years combined experience in the awning industry. We serve all of Kentucky and Northern Tennessee and we have had orders have come in from as far away as California. Here at USAwning we make sure that every customer is satisfied with their product.
