Total Airport Road Signage by First African Holdings

TOTAL (Exports)

In March 2015,  First African Corporate Identity,  who is a preferred supplier of Tair signage for the Southern African zone, conducted a training for Total Zimbabwe’s consultants & contractors to educate and inform them about the requirements of the new Tair signage.  Van Heerden De Wet (Operations Manager) and Gerrit Human (Technical Manager) represented First African Holdings, and Gerrit focused on the electrical wiring requirements of the new Tair signage.

Redesigned Total service station featuring a digital high rise pylon, canopies, columns and other modern signage elements.


Total is one of First African Corporate Identity's longest standing clients. Back in 1990, Rimm Engineering (one of the companies we acquired as we grew and became First African Holdings), supplied Total with the red panels used on their canopy fascia and shop fronts. 

We later supplied the AWLGRIP paint used to repaint signage on 600 sites across South Africa. Although this paint had a five year warranty, 12 years later many sites retain their original paintwork.
