About us

John Anthony Signs was established in 1968 by John Anthony Pleasance manufacturing high street signs from an 8,000 sq.ft factory in Hockley, Essex.  In 1983 the company moved to a 20,000 sq.ft factory in Rayleigh and began to grow as it started to secure signage rebranding programmes for national contracts across the UK.  John Anthony Signs has a reputation for quality, innovation and craftsmanship, hence our strapline 'Expert knowledge delivered'.

 We work closely with designers, architects, shopfitters, main contractors and end clients alike.  We offer a fully comprehensive service from consultative advice through to final installation with all of the signs manufactured in our factory.  We offer a national and international service and have won awards for our global achievements.

John Anthony Signs now has a wide, comprehensive cross section of clients operating across the globe in different market sectors i.e. retail, commercial, financial, public, automotive, leisure, institutions, travel and one-off large projects such as shopping centres or stadia. The core business spans illuminated signs, fascias, graphics, internal displays, directional signs, indeed the whole spectrum of the sign industry.

Service, quality, experience and a “can do” attitude, continues to build its success and reputation.
