United Sign & Trim-Line team is working tirelessly to support frontline workers from their newly modified workspace.

For over 25 years, United Sign & Trim-Line has been accepting all challenges within the sign-manufacturing industry. The company had to shift operations during the pandemic and make much-needed face shields and signage. Back in April, United Sign made 10,000 face shields for New Brunswick’s healthcare workers.

"We are run off our feet trying to produce face shields as well as KN95 masks, surgical masks and gloves and also launching our new division called Marked Safe," says Lauren Adams, sales manager at United Sign. "The launch is something we are very proud to offer and help local businesses create individualized COVID-19 operational plans to re-open."

The company is now preparing businesses for the reopening phase under new normal conditions. It's focusing on best practices and implementing safety measures for day-to-day tasks in the workplace.

“Our objective is to provide you with a turn-key solution and get your business back online. Our all-in-one safety package includes face shields, face masks, barriers and the necessary signage,” says the company in a recent post.

Additionally, it was supporting the community by offering free COVID-19 paper signs to any business in need. And in an effort to adapt to the new normal, United Sign pivoted to Low Touch Economy with the help of Symplicity Designs leading it through crisis management.

The company has a dedicated team and modern equipment

As a full-service sign company, United Sign has its sister company Trim-Line specializing in vehicle graphics. They operate together out of their Burnside Industrial Park location and they handle large projects as well as those of many small to medium sized businesses.

With three full-time designers plus a design-savvy management and sales team, everyone is involved from initial consult all the way to delivery. The entire team is committed to delivering high-quality services. They can tackle the most challenging projects with an extensive state-of the art equipment.

Inside a 10,000sqft manufacturing space, United Sign & Trim-Line houses screen-printing machinery, a CNC router, a flatbed digital printer and a pre-manufactured down-draft paint booth. The installation team can reach signs 50 to 60ft high with their crane and bucket trucks.

United Sign & Trim-Line brands the Maritimes

United Sign & Trim-Line has a long roster of big-name clients including STAPLES, RedBull, SUBWAY, TD Bank, NSLC and Tim Hortons amongst many others. The company’s commitment to those clients is backed up by the vision to help brand the Maritime business communities and contribute to the image of Nova Scotia as a province.

From design, installation, repairs and maintenance to fabrication, screen printing and large format services, United Sign & Trim-Line provides a one-stop shop experience. On top of a fully integrated service, it maintains and repairs its products to protect clients’ investments.
