Investment opportunity

Long established medium scale manufacturing Sign Company invites industry professional to invest in our company.

Working from our modern, fully equipped 12,000 sq ft manufacturing plant we deliver multi site rolling programmes and corporate branding to nationwide clients.

The suitable investor would have previous or ongoing involvement in high quality and volume projects as the ability to increase sales and value to the company is paramount to this investment.

Our typical projects range from fret cut illuminated fascias and built up aluminium letters through to complete Retail and Business Park branding including large scale freestanding gantry signs.

The external investment is to allow the exit strategy of our major shareholder to develop further over the next 3 to 5 years. An investment or amalgamation with another sign company looking to develop their in-house manufacturing ability or countrywide coverage would also be of interest.
