Make it Happen success at SignFab (UK) Ltd

SignFab (UK) Ltd work closely with independent training consultant ‘Make it Happen’ to provide industry relevant practical and theoretical training to help close the skills gap in the signage industry.

SignFab (UK) Ltd hosts monthly ‘Make it Happen’ sessions at our home in Leicester. The one day courses are a whistle-stop tour through the sign industry, covering every possible type of signage solution, new product developments, and installation methods.

The education sessions are delivered by Make it Happen Director, Sam Armstrong. Sam’s 17 year career in the signage makes her well placed to instruct novices and well established sign makers on how to get the best possible results The day is full of handy hints ‘n’ tips, along with do’s and don’ts.

“When I first introduced the Make it Happen programme I wanted to ensure that a value was put upon fabricated and illuminated signage.”

“Holding the programme at SignFab (UK) Ltd allows us to demonstrate first-hand the full processes all under one roof. This allows the delegates to see first hand why for example a built up letter has a certain cost, as we see how its been hand fabricated, with the miniature ovens and irons. The perception is you press the order button, often not knowing the process involved, yet if you know that the letter has taken 45 minutes to build suddenly creates that value!”

“The facility of having all equipment under one roof is a real rarity, therefore making my role as the facilitator far easier.”

Sam Armstrong, Director (Make it Happen)

Previous delegates from the course have told us that they think day works well as the theory discussed in the training session is brought to life on the technical factory tour with Operations Director, Mike Smith. Delegates on the training days are shown around the facility, which includes viewing the laser in action, breaking out and talking to fabricators in the letter workshop, following the paint track through its processes and observing assembly operatives creating final products.

We believe the tour gives the day great added value, allowing you to get up close and personal with our fabricators, demonstrating their skills and craftsmanship.

The day also includes a question and answer session on our Installation service with Installation Manager, Alan Hill.

“It has been a pleasure to welcome to SignFab (UK) Ltd so many delegates from the Sign industry to take a tour of our impressive site, the feedback I get and the surprised admiration we receive from the delegates is second to none, from the teachings of “Make it happen” to the final assembly in the factory I am yet to see a negative from any delegate.”

“It is also becoming apparent that the educational days are helping clients understand the SignFab (UK) Ltd process which helps in quoting and turning the quotes into orders in a timely manner.”
