Our in-house manufacturing operations are located in Applelec’s 6 acre business park in Bradford. With dedicated factories for the manufacture of our trade signage and lighting product ranges we respond quickly whilst never compromising quality.

Letter Fabrication

It is imperative, as a bespoke signage manufacturer, that we continue to embrace traditional methods of hand-crafting built-up letters, to allows us to remain responsive to customer needs and changing trends. This is why the vast majority of our metal built-up letters are fabricated by hand by our team of highly skilled craftsmen.
