    Logo

    We'd like to take a moment of your time to show you how we can provide service driven signage solutions for you.

What Do We Do

We're specialists in the design and manufacture of signs and graphics. We work tirelessly to 'Brand the Nation', from built-up signs to point of sale displays. Indoors or outdoors, we do it all. We do this for several leading household name companies within the grocery & property sectors and we believe our work speaks for itself.

Our team has a 20+yr trading relationship with AF Blakemore's SPAR Guild, having won their prestigious supplier of the year award, out performing the likes of Kellogg's and Coca-Cola. To our knowledge it's the only time it's been won by any non-grocery company in the awards history.

Our team has worked extensively with the construction industry and associated scheme management businesses and most recently we've developing a ecologically sound, fully-recyclable, hoarding graphic system which we rolled out with Bellway Homes in 2014.

We're no strangers to grande format signage, working regularly with wholesale branding for the likes of Sofidel, AG Barr & Mars. Ranging from Cash & Carry signage to Retail Park installations.

Efficient. Effective.

As an ISO9001 Accredited business, we have an ingrained commitment to quality & service and it starts with you.

As a partner working with us, you will have your own Project Manager to make sure everything runs smoothly, with only ever one number to call to answer any questions and get any updates.

We have developed a detailed Workflow Process, which is not just a convenient guide, it's our internal mantra. It helps us maintain control and total oversight ensuring everything goes smoothly, while also acknowledging the rare occasions where something needs to put right, and transparently details how we do this.

We don't just want to work with you, we want to wow you.

Quality. Assured.

We are currently working for clients with very particular quality demands, which we exceed. We're fully SafeContractor accredited for our approach to Health & Safety. We are proud of our ISO9001 Quality Systems award, which we've held for many years. We have a programme of on-going re-investment, updating our fabrication equipment and training. Our goal of keeping as much manufacture as possible in-house is our key weapon that allows us to quality check at every stage. We fully re-fitted our in house metalwork department, with a new CNC, Guillotine and Press Brakes throughout 2015. This has ensures our in-house fabrication facilities are second to none, means we're not reliant on subcontract manufacturers as so many others are, and - most importantly - allows us to exceed tolerances to ensure a perfect finish every time.

Design Studio

We have a well-equipped design studio running the latest Create Suites with 3D rendering and technical drawing capabilities, supporting the major industry standard formats for drawings.

Metal-Work & Fabrication

We are proud to have a team of fully trained and time-served fabricators who excel at what they do as part of our fully re-fitted in-house metalwork and paint finishing departments.

Grand Format Graphic Studio

We have recently upgraded our Large Format Print Department to include two Grand Format prints, a fantastic HP Scitex 2100 roll-to-roll machine and a lightning fast Agfa Jeti Flat Bed. Both make use of UV ink curing, which is substantially kinder to the environment than the previous generations full-solvent inks, helping our goal of future ISO14001 accreditation

Mounting & Finishing

Our in-house graphics finishing department has a full complement of tools and skills to produce the most exacting finish, from hot & cold laminating to precision cutting, scoring and grooving.

ISO14001 Environmental Conscience

We are an environmentally conscious organisation, who acknowledges the impact our operations may potentially have on the environment. We abide by the time honoured mantra of: Reduce, Re-use, Recycle.

As part of our ISO14001 accreditation we have pioneered the industry first Sustainable Sign Scheme, whereby we offset the carbon footprint created in the manufacture of the signage we produce by purchasing the equivalent in Carbon Credits from the JP Morgan ClimateCare scheme, and present each applicable site with a certificate. We have launched this in conjunction with SPAR.

Training Academy

We are working closely with the regional Get Oldham Working campaign to establish a new Brand Consortia Academy, to replace the scheme we previously ran with Oldham College. We found investing in training local young people, who have a real passion to learn, was a massive benefit in an industry that is currently short of skilled workers.
