Lamont - Regional Queenslands Leading Trade Signage Manufacturer
Changes In The Signage Industry
Over the past decade the signage industry has moved in a similar direction to many other service industries. You will have noticed that there are fewer and fewer "traditional" signage businesses starting up.
By traditional we mean the businesses where the owner is a Trade Qualified Signwriter, and who invest in large, expensive printers that manufacture the signage for installation or supply to your clients. And add to this the "consolidation" or merger of sign businessess, plus the closing down of retiring long term operators.
Increasing Structural Challenges
At the same time, the investment needed to keep your equipment up to date and fully maintained is increasing. The difficulty getting "good staff" to operate that equipment is increasing as fewer and fewer technicians are available. And the range of signage products that clients are demanding (thanks to the internet) is also increasing. All these add up to pressure on the signage industry to adapt, and quickly.
Sign Business - Trade Supplier Partnership
At Lamont, after decades of signage experience, we recognized that nearly all signage businesses were in a similar position with similar challenges. While we loved being able to manufacture just about everything in-house for our clients - it was getting more and more difficult. To grow our business we decided that we were in a uniquely qualified position to help and partner with other signage businesses.
Then, with further investment in our now amazing facility and equipment fleet, we could improve both the quality and the turnaround time for jobs for our trade clients. This allows our trade clients to focus on what they are good at, and removes a large percentage of the stress and frustration of signage production. They can print in-house, or send the job to us.
Our motto is "We want to be part of your job, we don't want your client!"
Now our trade signage network has grown across all of Queensland (and one in Melbourne!), with new enquiries most weeks from business owners looking to reduce their headaches, simplify, and likely improve their bottom lines.
