Since being founded in 1993, Hardy Signs have continually kept an open mind about their environmental impact. Moving to the state-of-the-art manufacturing base at Hardy Place in 2011 enabled the business to reinforce the green agenda and invest in more sustainable technologies. 

The first steps included purchasing the latest printing machinery and the installation of over 200 solar panels on the roof. These investments not only enabled Hardy Signs to save over £2000 in electricity bills but also cut their CO2 emissions by 2.5 tonnes annually, too. The purchase of a state of the art latex printer enabled the manufacturer to start using environmentally friendly, solvent-free water-based inks, reducing the contribution to ozone pollution.

In addition, the company replaced all lights within the facility with a low energy LED system. In 2017, Hardy Signs was awarded the Business Improvement Through Technology award by the East Midlands Chamber of Commerce. Judges reported that a big part of their decision was the dedicated work towards creating a more sustainable manufacturing output.

Sustainable transportation solutions have always been on the agenda, with the annual mileage on average being 350,000 across the fleet. At the beginning of 2020, Hardy Signs purchased their first Hybrid car, which acts as the first step into the hybrid era for the company. As part of the five-year vision, the company aims to turn to a fully electric solution, providing that the technology is sustainable and doesn’t disrupt the dedicated customer service. Hardy Signs Ltd is committed to reviewing the raw materials they use, suppliers and continue investing in the latest technology and staff training to match the increased demand and innovation. 

About the company: Hardy Signs is a professional and digital signage company that designs, manufactures and installs bespoke signage products to a wide range of business sectors in the United Kingdom. The company has been awarded the manufacturer of the year in 2019 and 2020.
