News: Signs Express brighten up Rotherham Market


Rotherham-based signs and graphics company, Signs Express, has made tenants and traders at the Markets Complex delighted after manufacturing and installing a range of new signage for the site.

Following a large volume of requests from the public, Rotherham Council secured £25,000 in 2013 in order to carry out a small, but effective refurbishment on the indoor market, which continues to welcome over four million customers per year.

Based at Templeborough, Signs Express is a long-standing partner of Rotherham Council, this year celebrating their ten-year anniversary of working with the organisation in their local region.

Carol Morris, co-owner of Signs Express (Sheffield), said: "We have been supporting the council for a long time now and are so proud to be a playing a part in the rejuvenation and development of the area for the wellbeing of all residents and visitors."


Signs Express provided the project with main exterior signage, hanging banners and window graphics, that have given the centre a complete facelift. The £25k project has also afforded urgent roof repairs and maintenance to be carried out across the complex to ensure its longevity and increase its customer satisfaction.

Dean Thurlow, markets operations manager, added: "The signage above the main entrance looks inviting and vibrant, leading to the many different commodities and services, which are on offer six days a week within the Outdoor Covered Market and Centenary Market Hall."

The Council recognises that the outdoor markets area is underutilised and has significant issues in terms of its access and permeability into the indoor markets area. A redeveloped markets complex was identified in the borough's growth plan.

The recent supplementary planning document included a key move to support "Making and Trading" in the town centre with the indoor market being retained and the remainder of the site being redeveloped. Influenced by Rotherham's history and ideas such as the Advanced Manufacturing Innovation District, a redeveloped market site could include opportunities for small scale manufacturing and space for entrepreneurs. The plans state: "The suitability of the Markets for this purpose is also reinforced by the fact that it would also be capable of providing a space in which products manufactured on site could be sold."
