DIVERSIFICATION to meet the demand for protective equipment to tackle the risk of Covid-19 in workplaces has seen a series of contract wins for Dragon Signs, the UK’s leading signage supply company.
Among the first companies to benefit from Cardiff-based Dragon Signs’ manufacturing agility was Connells Group, one of the country’s largest estate agency networks. The two organisations joined forces to ensure the safety of all Connells Group’s staff and customers as they reopened their 600 branches following lockdown.
Protective equipment delivered to Connells Group included shatterproof, polycarbonate sneeze screens and desk dividers, health and safety stickers and floor directional stickers, as well as CE approved category 3 full-face visors.
Rhys Harrington, Director of Dragon Signs, said: “It is thanks to the flexible way our company operates that when the pandemic hit earlier this year, our teams were quick to adapt and utilise our in-house facilities to produce this vital equipment.
“It’s safe to say that 2020 hasn’t been what we had envisaged but I’m proud that by thinking creatively we have been able to transform our business, protect jobs and produce vital equipment that will enable organisations to keep going at this incredibly challenging time.”
Phil Smith, Head of Group Procurement at Connells Group, said: “The safety of our colleagues and customers is paramount so, from the beginning of the pandemic, we have been working with our team and suppliers to ensure that we can continue to operate in the safest way possible.
“Having previously worked with Dragon Signs we already knew that they produced materials of the highest standard, so we felt confident that their protective equipment would be second-to-none. While Covid-19 remains a threat across the UK, we are secure in the knowledge that our colleagues can interact with our customers in a Covid-19 Secure manner.”
Unlike many other sign providers, Dragon Signs offers a complete in-house service, enabling them to design, manufacture and install products for customers quickly and to a high specification.
