sussex about

In 1995 we started The Sussex Sign Company with one driving purpose – to help businesses cut through their competition with a visual identity that demands attention.

Over 25 years on, that same purpose has seen us grow to a 4,000 square foot design and manufacturing hub with more 5-star reviews than any other signage business in the UK.

Hello, nice to meet you …

Norman Mayhew

I’m Norman Mayhew, Managing Director of The Sussex Sign Company based in Portslade, near Brighton and Hove.

In 1995, our signage business started as a family-run partnership, and although many things have changed since then, our vision has always stayed the same …

to be the best sign company in the United Kingdom by way of customer service, quality and value for money.

Along the way, we’ve successfully acquired two major competitors, won a handful of industry awards and grown a team of designers, manufacturers and installers who are committed to helping businesses – just like yours – enhance their visual identity.

We very much hope you will consider us for your next signage project, but in the meantime, here are some of our team enjoying some well-earned time-off just before Christmas.

Instead, we stay focused on the task at hand, refining our service through continued investment in specialist software, state-of-the-art machinery and highly trained staff.

Giving back to the communities we serve

As a business who operates in the heart of a busy community, it’s important for us to offer our support and expertise wherever we can.

In recent years, we’ve supported charities such as the Worthing Dementia Hub, Lifeboats, Guide Dogs for the Blind and other organisations who bring benefit to the community in so many ways.

We remain active in charity circles and will continue to offer our support wherever possible.

“The Sussex Sign Company was my first choice and ‘go-to’ company having met the team on an earlier occasion. They were swift to respond and support us, which made all the difference in creating a cohesive brand presence at one of the most compelling fundraising events. I have no hesitation in recommending their services.”

    We needed signs for our new offices, in Burgess Hill. Sussex Sign's were total pro's. We gave them the artwork, they made everything we needed and even came to install it all. Went like clockwork. I would absolutely recommend...

    Love these guys! Excellent service. Despite being in a similar industry, we still had a bit of messing about with graphics, but the team were very patient. The fitters were excellent too, working throughout a wet morning. Really pleased with the finished job.
