NCS Trade Signs becomes a Spandex Sign Systems Centre

Spandex has appointed NCS Trade Signs as an approved Sign Systems Centre in a move that sees the Derby-based company joininga national network of Sign Systems Centres that manufacture and deliver Spandex’s wide range of extruded aluminium internal and external sign systems.

NCS Trade Signs, a well-established trade-only signage manufacturer with a 25 year history, which employs over 50 people and a has a turnover of £3.5 million, has evolved from a steel engineering business, into a signmakerthat combines high quality products with a quick delivery.

The original company, Noise Control Systems, was acquired in May 1989 by father and son Brian and Nigel Stevenson, but following the acquisition of new sign making technology in 2015,it now supplies complete signage solutions that can be delivered directly to customers’ sites. NCS Trade Signs also generates its own engineering design to ensure all signs comply with current legislation. In the last two years, it has invested close to half a million pounds in a brand new powder coating plant, two new 2m x 4m routers, letter edge forming machinery, printers and plotters, an overhead crane and other machinery.

Owner Nigel Stevenson, commented: “We are delighted to become an approved Spandex Sign Systems Centre and to be able to supply the complete Spandex range, including the Slatz, Slim Slatz, Insertz, Infopanel, Monoform and Monoframe systems, in either standard format or bespoke sizes, to suit specific design criteria. With in-house powder coating, wet spray paint shop and graphic production facilities we can supply the complete finished sign if required, or in an anodised finish for further customisation by the client.”

Leon Watson, Spandex General Manager added: ” NCS’s outstanding reputation and market reach will enable many sign makers who do not have fabrication facilities to access our sign systems ranges. Spandex and NCS share the same focus on customer satisfaction and our aim is to supply the best products and services to signmakers across the UK.”
