Dave Lewis first established David Lewis Sign Services in 1988 with a small staff of 4 people, including a heavily pregnant Fran Lewis, carrying baby Rebecca, now at the heart of driving the Company forward with her husband, Graham. Prior to this Dave had 12 years working and gaining experience at two other local Sign companies.
Within 2 years, Dave joined forces with John Howes, one of our suppliers at the time, commencing trading on 12th November 1990. In doing so, we were able to have full-time in-house control of manufacturing, together with a wealth of experience in high quality engraving.
Over the next decade, we were able to fine tune and develop our engraving capabilities whilst at the same time embracing new methods such as laser engraving, etching, digital printing and a range of other Sign making skills.
Dave bought John Howes’s half of the business in 2000, John continued with the Company until his retirement in 2010.
