CLASSIC DISPLAYS, RIGHT FOR YOU
Classic Displays started as a small operation in 1977 out of a garage in Mississauga, Ontario and in the last 40 years has grown to become the multidivisional company you know and trust.
Started when owner Wayne Tucker began producing Christmas/Holiday decorations with his father as a part time job, Classic Displays quickly grew and built up a loyal customer base as it earned the reputation as an up and coming business in the outdoor enhancement field.
Wanting to become a less one dimensional business, and be able to serve their customers on a year round basis, it was time to expand, thus the Flags and Banners division of Classic Displays was introduced in 1985.
Despite the introduction of the new division, Classic Displays’ clients still had a number of needs that the company could not meet and they wanted to do more, so in 1990 the Site Furniture division was added. Initially manufacturing the majority of the site furnishings in steel and wood, Classic Displays recognized that recycled plastic was a better material to use as it was longer lasting and more environmentally friendly. Now Classic Displays takes pride in the fact that they are a Canadian leader in furniture manufactured from recycled plastic lumber.
Now including Wayne’s sons Adam and Chris, Classic Displays continues to grow and produce quality products the customer can depend on. Classic Displays has been right for you for 40 years and will continue to do so for years to come.

WAYNE TUCKER FOUNDER / OWNER
Wayne Tucker established this family owned and operated company in 1977. He incorporated the help of his father in building the first Christmas Displays in his garage during off duty time as a professional firefighter. As the company started to evolve into a steady enterprise he had to make a career changing decision, and in 1988 left the security and excitement that comes with being a firefighter for a new career in the business world where he would be the master of his own destiny. Today Classic Displays has three divisions producing enhancement products for Towns, Cities and Shopping Centres across North America.
