Since it’s formation in 1981 Blaze has become one of the UK’s largest sign companies. Offering nationwide coverage from manufacturing bases in Broadstairs and Birmingham, our workforce of 200 highly skilled individuals enable us to undertake all aspects associated with sign making in-house.
We are proud to have the utmost loyalty from our employees, some of which have been with us for the entire journey. We invest time in the nurturing and improving of skills and it is no coincidence therefore that the staff turnover levels are minimal.
Whether your need is for high volume rollout programmes or individual bespoke projects we have the team here to help you.
We remain passionate about our business and our people and we believe this shows through our practises and work ethic.
