WORLDWIDE NETWORK – WORLDWIDE PRESENCE- WORLDWIDE EXPERIENCE
International customer demand led to our first joint venture in the Asia-Pacific region and the beginnings of Albert Smith Global. Australia is the home of Albert Smith Group and is Albert Smith Global’s head office and marketing co-ordination centre. Our international success can be attributed to the sharing and utilisation of the varied resources available within the Albert Smith Global network.
Our first offshore joint venture and the beginnings of our global network was established in 1993 in New Zealand. Today we export completed branding and signage products into the New Zealand corporate marketplace.
We were arguably the first western signage company to enter China with Albert Smith China (ASC) established in Shanghai in 1994 to meet the needs of the emerging Quick Service Restaurant sector.
Albert Smith Philippines (ASP) was established in 1998 to meet the branding needs of the developing Filipino market.
ASP is located in Manilla and provides quality signage products and services, including in house design, structural engineering and in-house manufacturing to many of the countries high profile corporate identities specialising in the petroleum industry and restaurant chains. ASP also exports quality products in the Asia Pacific region to various clients in the auto industry.
The Global Signware Alliance (GSA) came about in 2001 on the edict of “global services and product supply, whilst meeting local requirements”
We form a global one-stop-shop, able to leverage the vast resources of our Alliance partners around the world – Albert Smith in the Asia Pacific, Blair Image Elements in North & South America and ProLicht across 7 locations throughout Europe. The Alliance provides a full-service experience starting with surveys, prototypes, planning applications, and development, all the way through to manufacturing, logistics, installation, and after-sales maintenance and service. Each GSA member is a market leader and contributes knowledge, experience and a passion for delivering powerful branding solutions.
Our Albert Smith brand has remained strong in China for the past twenty five years and in early 2020 we were privileged to announce our strategic partnership with Shanghai JA Sign Co Ltd as Albert Smith Sign’s authorised sole partner in mainland China.
