Signco became the market leaders for Peg Letterboards and Planning Systems in less than 15 years. Both these founding families retain their interest and involvement in the business covering the last 47 years.

Exterior noticeboards were initially added to the product portfolio to provide exterior solutions to display Peg Letterboards. The contemporary Scroll noticeboard range, a Design Award finalist in 1989, broadened the scope of Signco’s noticeboard range. These additions accommodated a variety of inserts, including fabric and cork pinboards, dry-wipe whiteboards and custom options.
