A quick glance at our “Recent Projects Map” immediately reveals the nationwide coverage achieved by Greenbarnes products. However, three very different signage jobs, coincidentally all undertaken within the last 3 months in our home town of Brackley, Northants, have combined to provide a useful showcase of the company’s diversity.
First to be completed was a project for developer Swan Hill Homes Ltd in connection with the town’s new Burgess Square development. The signs, in brushed stainless steel with chemically etched graphics, are mounted between bollards at the front edge of the site to identify the newly created space and to delineate it from the existing Market Place.
Immediately opposite the Burgess Square project, but a world away in style, a bespoke oak-framed chalk board for our local independent book shop demonstrates the company’s skills in more traditional areas of sign-making. The Old Hall Bookshop occupies elegant Georgian premises set back from the High Street behind a garden area and was looking for a way to raise its profile by means of getting a variable message to passers-by. The railing-mounted board can be removed for safe storage at night.
Last but not least was a brace of powder-coated aluminium “tray” type signs with computer-cut vinyl graphics for life insurance specialists Pulse Insurance Ltd who have recently opened new premises in the town.

Our recently introduced nationwide installation service is off to a flying start with jobs in a variety of locations already completed and many more quoted for.
As a manufacturer, we have always done everything possible to ensure that our products are simple to install and that they are supplied with full instructions to enable end users or their chosen contractors to undertake the work.
Whilst the use of such local contractors continues to be the method of choice for many of our clients, recently we have become aware of a growing demand for a one stop “supply and fix” service from customers who are either unable to source their own contractor, or who would prefer to see both the manufacturing and installation aspects of the project handled as one.
After careful evaluation, we believe that we have found ideal partners in the form of specialist sign installation company CSIM, who will be undertaking installations on our behalf in England and Wales, and Edinburgh-based Colinton Arts who will offer a similar service in Scotland.
Greenbarnes were very helpful in assisting us to find the right notice board for our needs. Delivery and installation were on time and the quality of the board is excellent.

Created in 1978, the Concrete Cows of Milton Keynes have become the city’s best-loved and most widely known piece of public artwork. To date the cows have lead an adventurous lifestyle which has included being kidnapped and held to ransom, decapitated Damien Hurst style and headlining at the Cambridge Folk Festival.
Now, in order that they may be enjoyed by a wider audience, five of the herd have been loaned to Midsummer Place Shopping Centre by their owners, The Parks Trust. Greenbarnes Ltd are delighted to have been chosen to supply the three bespoke interpretation panels, framed in oak with graphics printed onto Dibond panels, which accompany the three cows and two calves currently corralled under the oak tree in the centre.
