About Us

The Sign Centre was created back in 1997 in Ohope from my parents beach house in the garage. From sign design right through to sign installation we offered a complete service and quickly out grow the garage, so we needed more room and relocated to Commerce Street, in Whakatane. We were there for just over a year before moving to a bigger shop in George Street, Whakatane. After 7 years of awesome support by our Whakatane we sold and moved to Mount Maunganui. We found a place in Hull Road, the mount and spent 12 years there before moving to 94 Newton Street, in the heart of the industrial area of the Mount.

94 Newton street, the big move in 2013...here's a few photos of the new shop and some of the team installing the new neon signage. When we moved we decide to re-brand and fresh'n up our image.
