Bright future for Nordis Signs

May Gurney has agreed to purchase Nordis Signs, the government-supported manufacturer of road signs for Northamptonshire County Council, in a deal which secures the company’s long-term future.

May Gurney will continue to operate Nordis Signs as a government-registered supported business, which offers meaningful employment opportunities for people with disabilities. However, the company will be well placed to improve its profitability by increasing access to a wider network of contracts. The company’s 14 disabled employees have been consulted over the decision.

Cllr Andrew Langley, county council cabinet member for commercial and asset management, said: “I think this decision makes a great deal of sense as it brings benefits to all concerned.

“It’s a great example of how the public and the private sectors can work together to bring cost-savings while at the same time providing a very useful service for people with disabilities.

“Nordis Signs provides an excellent service and I’m delighted that we’ve found this solution to ensure it can continue to operate.”

David Hogg, finance director, May Gurney Highway Services, added: “We deliver essential services that make a difference to the quality of life for our communities, and therefore social and environmental sustainability are at the core of May Gurney’s business.

“We very much look forward to developing the service at Nordis and increasing employment opportunities for disabled people.”
