Since 1998 First African has been providing quality service and signage to leading brands throughout Africa. We have signage experience in a vast variety of industries, from petrochemical to banking, from tire to food and retail. We are focused on increasing your brand recognition and sales through quality engineered solutions and excellent service delivery.
We offer our clients consultative, design, prototyping, custom manufacturing, installation and maintenance services all under one umbrella.
Consultative and Project Management Services
At First African, the sales process begins with us thoroughly understanding your vision for your brand, as well as your goals and your budget. Our sales executives are specialists in taking your vision from conceptual design to high-quality, safely-installed signage. Our consultative services include preliminary surveys, conceptual drawings, and budget estimates.
We also believe in designating a specific project manager to your project. This ensures a personal touch and continuity throughout the project. It also prevents miscommunication and unnecessary delays.
Sign Design Service
Our commercial sign design service begins with our professional, in-house design team preparing drawings that include critical dimensions, material specification and essential information.
Using our extensive knowledge of and experience in local and international engineering standards, we are able to supply signage designs that provide maximum visibility while complying with all regulations.
Our designers will work closely with your brand guidelines and marketing team to ensure brand consistency. 3D CAD and product life cycle management software are utilised to manage and protect your data throughout the different design phases.
Prototyping and Custom Sign Manufacturing
Before proceeding into serial production, we complete full scale prototyping to test and optimize your design. This includes tests on illumination, structures, interchangeability between signs, ease of assembly and ease of maintenance. Only after a full design review and optimization, products are ready for manufacturing.
Our manufacturing facility is ISO certified and all manufacturing is done according to these standards. We do not only manufacture once-off custom signs, but also large quantities for corporate rebranding programs.
We believe in using advanced equipment including routers, metal shears, folding machines and channel letter machinery. This allows us to continually improve product quality and production techniques. Our graphics department produces all kinds and sizes of sign faces by utilizing large format digital printers, vinyl plotters and vacuum forming.
Signage Installation and Maintenance Service
We have installation crews across Africa and have resources available to handle installations of all sizes and complexity levels. All our installation teams participate in ongoing safety and installation training and our fleet boasts vehicles that are on strict maintenance schedules.
For large signage conversion projects requiring multinational installations, our project managers have established relationships with top tier sign installation companies within Africa.
We also offer custom maintenance packages to enhance the longevity of your signage. Our maintenance call centre gives you easy access to our professional team for guidance, support and speedy service delivery.
