Neon Specialties of America Corp., 1177 S. 300 West, a company that manufactures neon and electric signs, has signed a licensing agreement to exclusively produce National Basketball Association and National Football League neon logos and neon team logos.

"Because of the tremendous growth and demand for neon and the flourishing sports merchandise and paraphernalia market, we feel there is a tremendous market for our product," said Brian Glenn, vice president of sales and marketing."Sports-oriented businesses, pro teams and fans are our targets in this projected $15 million market," he said.

David K. Brimley, company president, said manufacturing of the neon logos will begin immediately and initial marketing and distribution will be through major sports team shops, the official licensed NBA and NFL catalogs and through the company.

Neon Specialties was incorporated two years ago and currently employs eight people.
