In 1988, David Catchpole met Tasha on highway 85 returning home in his crane truck from a project in New Jersey. They exchanged numbers at the next rest stop and married shortly after. It wasn’t a year when with a ’72 pick-up truck, 16’ ladder, 7,000 home mortgage, and a $5,000 loan from his grandfather, David and Tasha opened up Rite Lite Signs. The Catchpoles were go-getters from the beginning - literally.

In 1989, Hurricane Hugo devastated the Carolinas...
but where there was destruction, David and Tasha seized an opportunity to service their community while pouring success into their newly formed company and repair store-front signs. The need for signage repair was monumental and Rite Lite Signs came to the rescue.

The Catchpole’s first child, David, was born in 1989 and their second, Haley, in 1992, giving birth to the company’s color scheme: blue for the boy & pink for the girl. The two children grew up around cranes, metal, and welding and both work with their parent’s at Rite Lite.

Since their Garage in Kannapolis, the Catchpoles operated Rite Lite Signs from three different locations around Mecklenburg and Cabarrus Counties before they acquired the 55,000 Sq Ft Warehouse on 1000 Biscayne Drive in Concord, North Carolina.

Rite Lite has been at the beginning... and end of many iconic stores throughout the 90’s, 00’s and 10’s including the bank change-outs of, what is currently known as, Wells Fargo and the closing of the iconic Eastland Mall.

Rite Lite has seen 4 Generations
Our roots have grown with Rite Lite and continues to strengthen with each project, following the same core values David and Tasha instilled into their company in 1989: Passionate, Collaborative, Invocative, and Integrity.
