SBI NSSA Northeast Conference & Expo: Maximizing Your Shop Layout

shop floor webinar

It’s time to learn what other sign shops are encountering as they share stories and advice that can help improve the operation and efficiency of your business!

Do you have your equipment set up in the right spots? How can you improve the workflow experience to avoid bottlenecks? How can employees operate without feeling crowded or experiencing calamity? How can you add more needed equipment to a possibly already crowded fabrication floor?shop floor webinar

We’ll hold a conversational panel on September 20 at 8:45 am at the SBI NSSA Northeast Conference & Expo. The panel will speak with a variety of sign shop owners and production managers about the ergonomic, investment, and workflow solutions they’ve implemented that can give you ideas for improving your shop layout.

One of our panel members for this session will be Raymond Brayton, president of Barlo Signs, a full-service sign company in Hudson, New Hampshire that has been in business for half-a-century now. Four years ago, Brayton co-purchased the sign shop and has helped it to continue to create products that build success for its clients—even surpassing the original mission and expectations of its founders.

SBI NSSA Northeast Conference & Expo

The SBI NSSA Northeast Conference & Expo will be held on September 19-21, 2022 at the Rhode Island Convention Center in Providence, Rhode Island.

The conference program will feature two days of sessions that offer actionable “how-to” lessons to sign shops of all sizes and levels of experience. With a focus on how sign shops can increase sales and profits through strong business management and operational efficiency, this conference will arm you with all the tools you’ll need to become a better business owner.

Of course, no sign shop is complete without the right equipment and services, and there will be a large show hall filled with exhibitors from across the sign industry, hands-on product demonstrations, and valuable networking opportunities.

The day-to-day challenges of operating a sign shop along with larger issues like labor shortages and supply chain disruptions, can make it nearly impossible to step back and evaluate your sign shop’s current operations and future plans. Join us in Providence this fall and make the time to work on all the aspects of your business that will result in increased profits, a stronger team, and a clear path forward.
