A COMPANY supplying signs is going back to its roots to boost business.
Milnsbridge-based Horizon Signs is extending its expertise into fabrication works and powder coating as well as sign-making.
Horizon began life as a fabrication firm more than 20 years ago before moving into the signing market. It now has 12 fabricators who can work on anything from gates and railings to shop, restaurant and pub fixtures.
The investment in a powder coating works adds further to the business as it provides Horizon with the option to powder coat their own products but also those of other companies.
This powder coating system has an automatic track and large oven, allowing Horizon to paint many products in a short time scale in a colour to suit the clients’ requirements.
Ross Ball, director at the Britannia Road business, said “In this challenging climate – which is seeing other companies closing down sections of their business and downsizing – , we are pleased that Horizon is continuing to expand.
“We are constantly striving to satisfy demand and meet the individual requirements of our customers in all aspects – whether it’s sign making, powder coating or fabrication.”
