A major factor in why organisations choose Hexcite to deliver their signage services is the ability to source everything under one umbrella. There’s digital signage solutions via Concept Signs, innnovative and bespoke , production, installation and project management via Blaze, and expert maintenance through Cygnia. When combined, the resources and expertise within the three members of Hexcite provides the ability to scale up for projects is unmatched. As Howdens have discovered during their work in undertaking a brand update project across their network of 700 depots across the UK.
Back in 2020, as part of a re-brand exercise across a number of their depots in the UK, Howdens contacted Hexcite, and asked if they could undertake a pilot installation at their depot in Salisbury, Wiltshire.
When the task was completed, Howdens than asked if Hexcite would be able to scale up the task of a further 80 depots larger number of depots – in just 10 weeks. This was no problem, thanks to the resources within Hexcite subsidiary company Blaze Signs for the site surveys, production, and installations. This project was completed ahead of deadline, proving the ability of Hexcite Holdings’ subsidiaries to meet larger signage update projects.
Howdens then wished to repeat the exercise at a further 306 depots across the South of the UK – a job that would be far outside the capacity of other signage companies. By pooling the resources within Hexcite the signage printing, production, surveying and installation of signage across the depots was successfully completed.
Howdens gave a green light for the UK-wide brand update in January 2021, and set a completion deadline of the end of 2022, which was completed ahead of schedule.
