Hayne-West was one of the first companies to make cast metal signs. The company established itself under the name of Hayne-West in 1985 after a six-year partnership, and a foundry and design workshop was set up at Whitchurch, near Ross-on-Wye, Herefordshire. In 1999, due to retirement, the business was sold. The business continues today to produce the same high quality workmanship, and uphold the same sound standards, flexibility and excellent customer relationships.
Our commitment to customer satisfaction is the foundation from which our solid business relationship is built. We offer the highest level of professionalism, expertise and service, recognising that people do business with people they trust.
Since 1985 Hayne-West has been privileged to be the manufacturer of signs for the Duchies of Cornwall and Lancaster. This long-established royal trust and confidence in our workmanship is testament to the true quality and elegance of our signs.
We are proud of our high standard of workmanship. Quality is of uppermost importance to us, which is why we pay so much attention to detail at every stage of the manufacturing process.
Our signs and post boxes are popular in Europe, America, Canada, New Zealand and Japan. We have been chosen by authorities as far away as Northern Ireland to make imposing signs for County Council Offices, Schools, and other official buildings. A little closer to home the millennium shields, which we made, can be seen on the gates of St. Mary’s Church at Ross-on-Wye. Many of the distinctive blue plaques seen on historic buildings, such as the ‘Mayor’s Project’ at Ross-on-Wye or those marking the history of the buildings of Tenby for example, were also made by us.
At Hayne-West there is an atmosphere of friendly good humour and pleasure in the creative process. Some of our staff have been with us for many years and have built up a wide background knowledge and expertise in the sign-making business.
All our patterns and emblems were produced by us from our own artwork. Our ever popular ‘Hayne-West’ post box (which is copyright protected) was also designed and created by us.
There are many reasons why people choose Hayne-West, not least of all for the peace of mind that they are dealing with a reputable well established company.
Customers often prefer to discuss their requirements before placing an order. Our dedicated friendly staff are always pleased to offer their professional help and advice, without obligation, to ensure that the best layout for your sign or post box is always achieved.
