Cummins/Onan is usually presented with logos abutted thus: COnan. My father worked there for forty years and a bit.

Consider also Onan Roofing in Waukegan, IL.

Streetview is at http://xrl.us/onanroofing

Website is http://www.onanroofers.com/ They promise everything to be "hand nailed."

Related to them is Onan Garages, who used to have a large man holding a garage: http://www.roadsideamerica.com/tip/9386 Alas, it is no more.
