A Hull-based signmaker has been accepted as a member of the International Sign Association as it celebrates 25 years in the industry.
Established in 1996, the foundations of Sapphire Signs, in Bontoft Avenue, off National Avenue, were built when a contract with Focus DIY was secured.
Following national contracts with Allied Carpets and Jacksons Convenience Stores, plus other blue-chip companies, Sapphire Signs has established itself as one of the largest manufacturers of signage in the UK.
To become a member of the International Sign Association, all applicants are vetted and subject to the ISA-UK code of practice and obligations of membership which has set standards for product quality and customer service.
Membership of the ISA-UK makes a clear statement about a sign business and anyone who has responsibility for buying signs should give serious consideration to employing the services of an ISA-UK member.
Daniel Casey, managing director (pictured), said: “The signage industry like many others should have standards. Clients should feel assured knowing that an ISA member will have trained staff, safety measures are in place and the business has procedures and quality control in place. This will provide a consistent level of service for all businesses.
“Too many times corners are cut often due to cutting prices just to win the job. We must stop this race to the bottom, otherwise, we will all lose out. I look forward to working with the ISA and its members to help raise the standards of our industry.”
