When Rod and Jean Powell decided to start their own company, it built on nearly 20 years of Rod’s experience as a signwriter. What began as an apprenticeship in 1964, soon developed into skilled, dextrous and precise sign writing and a leap of faith into today’s family-run business.
Never afraid to embrace change, Rod and Jean moved from their original small unit after less than three years. Sites in Long Bridge Industrial Estate (1986-1992) and Empress Road (1993-2017) were outgrown until the business settled into its current premises on Solent Industrial Estate, Hedge End, Southampton.
Through the last 40 years, the team at Elmtree Signs has grown, taking on more staff in all areas of the business, to ensure a competent and knowledge-led service. The ethos of the business continues with the introduction of Rod and Jean’s son Ian (in 2001) and his wife Vicky (in 2014). As the business has grown, the heart of this family concern has never changed.
