It's amazing who you can bump into when getting out and about around our capital cities. Signage is being installed and refreshed everywhere. This week we ran into Mick Makewell on his way back from a job at Chatswood Chase shopping centre, NSW. We passed his Apex Signage van in the car park and wondered if an installation was afoot!

Apex Van
Spotted in the car park! "Must be something going on inside" we thought.....

Apex Signage is a well-known business on Sydney's Northern Beaches and has recently opened a Queensland operation based at Robina on the Gold Coast.

Owner Nick Greally and his family have relocated to be near the new operation and new employee Mick Makwell has recently returned from overseas to install signage wherever the call is. ASGA member Apex offers everything from poster signage to complete builds and fit-outs: "Design-Print-Build-Install" as its own van motto goes.

Apex's Mick Makewell at work!

Apex's wide range of clients include retail chains, corporates, real estate, governments, clubs, universities and more. Names such as Foxtel, Colliers International, Raine & Horne, Laverty Pathology, Manly Sea Eagles, KPMG, Western Sydney University - as well as many Sydney small businesses have all had signage and fit-out work carried out by Apex - and the testemonials are glowing. The team even wrapped Northern Beaches Council's fleet of 40 garbage trucks in multiple colours with graphic messages against domestic violence. Forty big trucks wrapped on-site in three weeks!

After spotting the Apex van, we ran into Mick, carrying a big box of Orafol SAV. Our honed powers of deduction judged that he must be installing some signage! We had a quick chat as he was off to the next job. Made our day!

If any of our readers go 'out and about' and spot signage installation going on around their cities and towns, why not take a couple of piccies and send them through to with a few words? We're always happy to promote the work of this great $3 billion industry of ours!
