Founded in 1955 by Ed Keyes, Key-Ads, Inc. today is operated by Ed’s son and grandsons. Key-Ads has expanded over the years throughout Ohio, Indiana, and Kentucky.
After serving in World War II, Ed returned to his hometown of Dayton, Ohio and began a career in sales. It was in his sales/management position in the field of outdoor advertising, that he found his calling.
When Ed was forty, with a wife and six children, he embarked on his new business. Over the next 25 years, Ed began building and selling 8-Sheet Junior Posters in the greater Dayton area. His son, Nicholas, joined the company full-time in 1973.
In 1979, Nicholas purchased the company.
Since that time, Nicholas has been joined by his three sons: Nick Jr., Stephen, and Joe. Key-Ads has grown to now offer 8-Sheet Junior Posters, 30-Sheet Posters, Bulletins, Wallscapes, and Digital Billboards throughout their coverage area.
The Keyes family continues to be dedicated to excellence in the outdoor industry, their employees, the clients they serve and the communities in which they operate.
