City & County Graphics

In 1993 our current MD gave up his previous career as Director within a large printing corporation and started a small business making stickers for racing cars from the spare bedroom of the family home. A few years later a local sign company making temporary road signs for local councils was bought and the two companies were eventually merged to form City & County Graphics Ltd.

Today the company has a turnover in excess of £3m and provides signage for the majority of national housebuilders and other well-known blue chip companies. The historic ties with motor racing continue as Formula 1 teams are still current clients. Please view our website to see some of the projects we have completed for our existing clients (www.cityandcountygraphics.co.uk).

Now located in two adjoining factories on Kingston Business Park near Abingdon, Oxfordshire, City & County are well located to easily serve all the major business hubs. With installation teams and storage facilities strategically placed around the country journey times to sites are kept to a minimum helping reduce costs and limit harmful carbon emissions.

Significant investment in the very latest printing and cutting technology provides in-house manufacturing to the highest standards and allows close control over quality with an enviable ability to react to client requests no matter how short the lead time.

Focus on the environment has led to the development of solar powered signs which negate the need for expensive electrical installations and promotes clean, environmentally friendly solutions to illumination, particularly during winter months.

Apprenticeships are an increasingly important factor within the current workforce for a number of reasons; the employment of youth is vital to the future of the company, skilled sign makers are best trained in-house, company ideals on quality and customer service can be instilled from the beginning and the benefits from differing viewpoints and opinions are key to the healthy progression of City & County.

The Health & Safety of staff, clients and the general public are an absolute priority and no compromises are made or corners cut. A firm of structural engineers provide the calculations and drawings required for safe manufacturing and installation, a key factor with the ever changing climate which seems to bring more intense storms each year. Continuous staff training is part of the company culture.

City & County Graphics Ltd have an enviable and unbroken record of growth since the last recession in all key areas of turnover, profitability, staffing levels, production facilities and investment in equipment…and customer satisfaction.

The main factor in our continued growth and success is the skill and dedication of our staff, their attention to detail and commitment to giving a first class service cannot be underestimated. Manufacturing signs is (surprisingly?) a very short turnaround and high pressure environment, especially working for nationally known companies, and having the latest and best machinery with creative operators helps us to meet client demands and expectations. Using flatbed UV printing techniques allows extremely fast, extremely high quality printing, followed by computer controlled cutting and shaping, which is the result of constant and substantial investment.

Our Oxfordshire location gives us excellent access to all parts of the country and allows efficient servicing of our national customer base.

One of our major objectives is to better serve the business community within Oxfordshire and to give greater focus on opportunities closer to home. The history and heritage of the area presents a real opportunity for creative signage, mixing new technologies such as solar power and LED lighting with traditional craftsmanship and we relish the rewarding challenge this brings.

To this end we have recruited Grant Shergold, former local RBS Relationship Manager as our Sales & Marketing Director. We have entered the Twin Town Challenge to support local charities and will put ourselves forward in the Oxfordshire Business Awards to showcase the talent of our staff.

Our search for larger premises continues to accommodate planned future growth and with it the search for more wonderful people to join us in our endeavours.
