Signs Express’s Portsmouth branch has been supporting its local community by providing free signage products.
The business, which is part of a national signage franchise with 65 UK branches and almost three decades of industry expertise, created the products to help local companies. From its premises in Walton Road, in the Farlington area of Portsmouth, the Signs Express unit has supplied over 6,000 different items since the start of the pandemic.
The branch’s output includes social distancing signs and over 500 stickers, which display detailed diagrams reminding people to wash their hands regularly.
In an effort to show support for local organisations, the Signs Express business provided all these products completely free of charge. They delivered them to a range of different local enterprises, including schools and nurseries.
As well as creating free signage products, the business has also allowed staff to carry out volunteer work over the past year. Many Signs Express employees have helped out at a food bank at St Margaret’s Community Church in Southsea, using vans to collect and deliver precious food supplies.
The unit’s Managing Director, Ray Allenby, has even spent time volunteering for the NHS. He explained,
“We’ve been lucky enough to remain open for the majority of the past year, so supporting our community was an easy decision. We have the van available and know how important the work done at the church is, we love pitching in.”
Signs Express has been up and running since 2002 and supplies signage products across a range of different sectors, including retail, hospitality, professional services and construction. It’s on the lookout for new franchisees to bolster its presence in the UK; you can find out more about its opportunity on its profile page, linked above.
