Brisbane based print supplier Sign Essentials is now open in a new premises in Geebung, expanding its business once again.
Sean Strange, directing manager for Sign Essentials says, “We had outgrown our previous premises. We had expanded twice before in our previous space. We started with one unit and then got two, then three, and now we just needed more space once again. Over time we are selling more equipment and more products. We import from overseas and want to sell more items more quickly, and in order to do that we need the space to do so.
“Previously, we had 900 square metres over three units which were not particularly well laid out – they were units so there were doors and walls in the way. Now everything is in one factory with a purpose built showroom, and we can see everything we are doing.

“We were always in the same complex before. This is the first move we have made but it was important for us to stay in the same area. We have a lot of customers on the north side of Brisbane, it is important for us to keep catering to them and allowing them to get their stock.
“We do have plans for 2018 to introduce new products and equipment. We have two parts, we have been a Roland dealer for 20 years and that is our main side of the business. We are also an Impact CNC distributor so we sell lasers and routers on the cutting edge of the market. On top of that, we sell materials for print. For instance, we do have items from Grafityp in Germany. Now that we have the extra space, we can have a broader range of their products and expand what we currently have.
We are a family business, my father owns it and started it 35 years ago. He is retired now, I am the general manager and I run the business with my brother and sister. For next year, we are planning to keep going down the road we are going, keep expanding and bringing in new products.”
