As one of the UK’s leading printing and signage contractors, we have acquired Sygnet Group from Administrators.
The acquisition will mean the entire Sygnet Group workforce will retain their employment, saving 25 jobs in total. We are already the largest wide format printing and signage contractor in Birmingham. Now, as a leading trade contractor in the UK, the combined business has 65 employees and a turnover of £12 million, with the capability to print over 15,000sqm of high-quality, sustainable signage per day.
Based in the Midlands, we supply to some of the world’s most high-profile brands and events, as well as exhibitions at London Excel and Birmingham’s NEC. Operating as a trade supplier, this latest development will enable the business to expand its offering to its trade partners. further still, drawing on Sygnet’s extensive permanent contract experience within property, construction, events, exhibitions, and retail.
This new addition will continue to trade from its site in Leicester as Sygnet Fabrications and its branding will undergo an update, with a new logo and website already under development. It will continue to provide bespoke solutions such as totems, wayfinding, and retail and corporate signage, as well as rollout programmes, under our leadership.
The procurement of Sygnet Group was a perfect fit for us. As a trade print supplier to the signage and events industry, we are already very familiar with the trade supply market and will continue to supply Sygnet’s established and future trade customers with quality signage solutions.
Both family-run companies are based in the midlands and share a common background, with a strong manufacturing heritage that spans decades, and a culture that puts people at the heart of what they do and prides itself on strong customer relationships. They both have a pioneering spirit, exploring new methods and materials to deliver quality signage, with a particular focus on sustainability over the last few years.
