Signage manufacturer Hardy Signs is celebrating a key landmark after designing, manufacturing and installing over a million signs.

The firm, which was founded in 1993, supplies professional and digital signage to a wide range of sectors.

The business initially started 28 years ago this month in the home garage of founder Nik Hardy.

Two years’ later, in 1995, as the business started to grow, he started renting his first premises.

Early projects primarily consisted of hand-painted signs and vehicles, predominantly for breweries and pubs across Burton.

Today, Hardy Signs can count a number of national and international organisations among its customers, including the NHS, Plastic Omnium, Muller and Nestle.

The firm said among the keys to its success has been a focus on customer service, investment in people and a close connection to the community.

Over the last 36 months, 100% of the young professionals in the company have been taking training intending to strengthen ‘homegrown’ talent.

And over the last decade the company has made significant investments in sustainable machinery, manufacturing techniques and recycling.

This approach has led to a number of awards, including Manufacturer of the Year in 2019 and 2020, respectively, at East Midlands Chamber and Staffordshire Chamber awards.

Recently, Hardy Signs was also nominated for Excellence in Manufacturing at awards organised by the Greater Birmingham Chambers of Commerce.
