ABOUT US

Signbiz was created in a small garage in Christchurch in March 2007. Jim Coe & Paul Reeves carpooled to-and-from work (in their shared van) for the first 6 months, to get things off the ground, but business didn’t stay small for long. As clients recognised their creativity and skill at combining the new era of digital (at the time) with traditional sign-writing methods, they realised that Signbiz could offer a diverse range of signage products, not only covering all aspects of brand but also fabricated 100% in house.

The business grew rapidly to meet the expanding client base and fulfil local & national projects. Consequently, it became very apparent that Signbiz needed to offer the same product, quality, service and price nationally, that they had offered so expertly at local level. Clients needed the option to liaise with one person and be guaranteed the exact same result throughout the country, without any risk to their brand. As a result, the search for reliable partnerships in the major centres in New Zealand began.

At the outset, it was very apparent that not all signage companies are created equal. Signbiz initially struggled with various signage providers at national level to offer the brand protection, specific timeframes and high standards that our customers deserved. It was imperative that Signbiz had to be able to control a national roll-out, independently, with full respect to the customer. For that reason, the decision was made to create the Signbiz Limited Group.

Since then, Signbiz has grown into the National company we are today, boasting 4 offices and our own production houses throughout New Zealand. We employ over 60 staff members in the group, operating and communicating as one cohesive team while sharing expertise, resources and experience.

Over the years we have welcomed Regional Managers & Shareholders, meaning that each person you deal with at management level has the same invested interest as Jim and Paul have had from the beginning; to deliver a quality job and have satisfied clients. Shayne in Auckland and Colin in Wellington both have a long and rich history in Signage, bringing to the table great skill and best-practice knowledge.

When it comes to projects outside our main areas, and depending on client wishes, we take the “We have wheels and will travel” approach. For any other assignments, we have used our 10 years of experience to build up a network of trusted, like-minded installers who we work closely with.

The experiences gained from our initial humble business start-up have enabled Signbiz to relate to new, small businesses and their growth needs in terms of marketing strategies and developing tailored, bespoke signage. We haven’t forgotten about the small guy and our team greatly enjoys working along-side and watching our customers grow at all levels. That said, we take on massive projects with confidence and offer a complete package from initial design through to installation and signage maintenance.

Let us help you with great ideas, prompt and friendly service, fair pricing and a quality end-product.

APPRENTICESHIPS

As a measure to combat the skills shortage in New Zealand, Signbiz takes a proactive approach to training and upskilling our staff.

By recruiting and training apprentices, we develop young adults in a way that meets our industry requirements, thereby investing in the future of our staff and larger community as a whole.

Hands-on training gives students a real chance to put their skills into practice and helps them gain confidence in a working environment.

We are very proud of our resident Apprentice, Toby Marsh, who took home the GOLD medal for Apprentice of the Year 2019 at the New Zealand Sign and Display awards.

Toby was also featured in the May Edition of Careers Magazine.
