Sign and graphics franchise Signwave Australia is opening its second West Australian centre, at Osborne Park in Perth. It’s the company’s second launch of 2018, following last month’s opening of Signwave Adelaide Central.

Signwave Osborne Park Perth co-owner Barry Boyd has over 15 years’ production and operations management experience, having originally qualified as a printer at the Glasgow College of Building and Printing.

“Until now, I predominantly specialised in the self-adhesive label sector and am now looking forward to extending this print, production and business management expertise into signage and display services for clients in automotive, hospitality, events, construction and retail industries.”

Boyd and his co-owner and wife Ellie Boyd have put together a strong team ahead of the centre’s launch.  Lachlan Menzies has 14 years in production, design, and installation, including vehicle wrapping – and Nicholas Carter has over 10 years’ experience in graphic design as well as in film application.

The Scottish-born Boyds moved to Perth 14 years ago and, along with their 12-year-old son, Cameron, now call WA home.

This is the second expansion announcement by Signwave in 2018, and the franchise company is actively searching for more potential franchisees to join their network of 17 Australian centres and 675+ worldwide.

‘Tried and tested methods’: Linda Sultmann, GM Signwave Australia.

“Following the rollouts of Signwave Adelaide Central, and now Osborne Park, the benefits of franchise ownership for commercially minded people are continuing to be realised,” says Linda Sultmann, GM of Signwave Australia. “Our preparation process and training are thorough, and our marketing support begins way before the doors open for business. This is the advantage of joining a franchise group with tried and tested methods of creating strong foundations for SMB profitability.”

Signwave is especially interested in the Brisbane and Gold Coast markets. There are also a limited number of identified opportunities in other key metro and regional metro areas, including a resale opportunity in a prime Sydney metro area.

“Both of our two new centre owners have backgrounds in industries that have made the switch to signage a logical next step,” says Dean Rowland, franchise operations manager, Signwave Australia. “Signwave is a smart choice for current sign, print or window tinting business owners wishing to convert or co-brand. Our industry experience, expertise, technical resources and support systems make us hard to overlook for anyone interested in providing a reliable, highly skilled, comprehensive visual communications service.”
