Scotland - Staying small and lean keeps The Sign Factory busy

Brothers Phil and Jim Boyd started The Sign Factory in 1986. Initially working from the back of Jim and his wife Anne's model shop in Greenock, they soon outgrew those premises and moved into their current factory unit a few miles away in Port Glasgow in 1989.

Today, The Sign Factory's main business comes from a mixture of van liveries and shop fascia signs, along with flat-cut letter jobs. The company supplies end users across most business sectors in addition to supplying the sign trade with flat-cut routed letters in various materials.

Phil and Jim invested in a new Sabre 508 CNC router just over two years ago. Capable of more accurate and faster cutting than their previous router, it has reduced turnaround times for trade and end user customers alike.

Phil says keeping the business lean and remaining very much "hands on" have been significant factors in its continuing success.

"We believe that the quality we offer is second to none in the area. With the current economic climate, our affordable prices and consistently meeting customer demanding deadlines, as well as our warm and friendly approach to our customers, makes us an even more attractive proposition," he says.

"Business this year has been erratic to say the least, but with increased activity through local marketing, more efficient in-house practices and keeping a close eye on expenditure we are staying ahead of the game."

Future plans include addition of alarge format printer to The Sign Factory's current in-house printing facilities, probably within the next year.
