Business mission: Helping businesses to communicate and promote their brand or message through high quality signage and display solutions.

Burgeon Signs are leading manufacturers of quality signage and display solutions throughout New Zealand. The business has a long history in the Waikato, previously as Profilm and later merging with Signcraftsmen Hamilton in 2014 to become Burgeon Signs.

After taking over Profilm in 2009 during a recession, the business underwent some turbulent times. Now Burgeon Signs is flourishing and can design, manufacture and install quality signage and display solutions throughout New Zealand.

Ollie says it’s a place where clients benefit and his five staff can grow and evolve: “The word ‘team’ if as important as ‘family’ and both are everything to us.”

The main point of difference is the creative abilities of the Burgeon Signs team, from design through to manufacture and installation. This creativity also comes through in their ability to supply a comprehensive range of signage and displays.

Far more than just signage, Ollie sees it as a drive to create innovative leading edge solutions that “add value to my client’s businesses to help them grow”, and this ideal is reflected in the company name.

Taking over Profilm in 2009 during a recession, Oliver created a strategic plan to keep the business growing. However, trying to maintain full output while understaffed at the time lead to longer hours and increased stress, affecting his home life. In 2011 Oliver stared working from home in the hopes that he would be able to combine his work and home life. Although this works for some businesses, he found that this was not the direction for Burgeon Signs.

In 2014 he took over the day-to-day management of Signcraftsmen Hamilton and merged the client base of Profilm. The amalgamated companies formed Burgeon Signs.

Burgeon Signs was formed to provide high quality signage and display solutions, with full in house production abilities such as large format digital print, ACM and Acrylic fabrication, 3D and illuminated sign manufacture. The Burgeon Signs team has taken all their experiences and expertise from the last decade to become who they are now.

“I have learnt so many lessons over the years – most the hard way – but am very grateful for them all as today I feel very proud of who we are and where we can go as a business”.

Ollie and his team’s enthusiasm and their continuous embracing of new technologies and solutions drives growth and customer satisfaction.

Each year Burgeon Signs offers a $5,000 signage makeover to a local business, charity or non-profit organization – all for free.

Ollie is a big believer in giving back to his community and the team also support many local charity events with donations and sponsorship, including Hamilton’s Kid’s Toy Run and the Vincent de Paul Winter Warmer.
