SIGN News Sign 2000 relocation to fuel future growth


Now firmly established as one of Europe’s foremost manufacturers of corporate signage, Sign 2000 has completed its move to an impressive new and larger factory site on the Deacon Trading Estate in Tonbridge, Kent. Driven by continuing growth, based largely on the acquisition of some of the most prized UK and Continental Europe signage contracts, the move is the culmination of a series of notable achievements that can be traced back to the company’s inception in 1988. The new 37,000 square feet factory is of a size that will


accommodate further growth and represents a 100 per cent increase in the previous floor space to meet existing and predicted customer requirements. Co-founder and current Managing Director of Sign 2000, Murray


Crompton commented: “The self-funding investment of £250,000 to facilitate the move included the purchase of new plant and equipment and the appointment of additional personnel to ensure that the


company continues to thrive in an extremely competitive market.” The most significant element of this new investment has been


the installation of a super-efficient ‘Camel Back’ powder coating plant complete with a phosphate treatment wash. This is complemented with a nine metre-long box oven to enable powder coating of large fabricated steel structures used in many of the company’s major corporate signage projects. The move also coincides with Sign 2000 announcing a


further improvement in growth and profitability. In 2010, growth increased by an impressive 20 per cent over the previous year. More significantly, however, growth in 2011 is currently predicted to increase by a further 40 to 50 per cent. This is non-speculative since it is based on received orders, client-committed programmes and contractual agreements that were concluded in 2010.

“Our first video on the Seiko ColorPainter was very well received and we hope to have similar interest in this new production. The emphasis this time however, is all about the application rather than the technology and shows how, with the right tools, printing custom wallcoverings is very straight forward. More and more people are using short videos to help them understand the technology and applications and our videos are designed to make this even easier for them.” The video was developed by marketing company, JGC.
