In November 2018, Marley Eternit Ltd, with their head office on the A38 outside Branston, announced a rebrand project to take place before the end of the year and Hardy Signs Ltd were contracted to orchestrate the change.
The company, now known simply as Marley Ltd, boasts 100 years of roofing expertise and heritage, and is the UK’s leading roof systems manufacturer. For more than 20 years, Hardy Signs have designed, manufactured and installed signage for Marley, working closely to build a successful partnership between the two. A previous rebrand back in 2013 was successfully delivered by the Hardy Signs team who offered an particular understanding of the brief supported by their knowledge of the organisation.
This year’s project itself presented several challenges as the award-winning sign company were to re-design many existing signs and create new signage schemes to compliment them. The delivery of the project was carried out and completed with a single week as the installation team attended more than seven sites…including Beenham, Gainsborough, Wrotham, Glasgow, Bridgend, Keele and the headquarters in Burton on Trent.
With a wide range of signage sizes and materials to work with, the team employed specialist access equipment in the form of scissor lifts to access the high-level and challenging locations. Hardy Signs achieved successful delivery of the project within the relatively short timescale and also with minimal disruption to the operations of each site… an essential element to the project brief.
“We have a great understanding of Marley Ltd” explained Tom Hardy, Operations Director for Hardy Signs. “Having carried out many projects we are able to implement the processes that we know are required for the efficient operations of their multiple sites. We battled through quite severe wind and rain to ensure, as always, that the deadlines were met”.
“The re-branded signage has been made and fitted in place with great efficiency and that’s great for us” added Emily-Jane Dix, Marketing Executive for Marley Ltd. “Hardy Signs have been instrumental in ensuring that the process was quick and impactful – everything was completed to a high standard and within just a week our sites were all showcasing the new brand”.
