Tran Sign (1999) Ltd. manufactures and sells uniform traffic signs.
In 1947 the Government of British Columbia established this sign shop to manufacture and supply all of BC’s roads and highways with uniform traffic signs. It continued to provide millions of handmade signs to the Province through a state of the art facility in Victoria until February of 1988 when it was privatized and purchased by its employees.
With a 6,200 sq. ft. production area, Tran Sign was born and continued to supply BC with not only the best uniform traffic signage, but a complete line of safety products including barricades, sign stands and hardware.
As the Government contract came to a close in 1993, Tran Sign expanded its portfolio to cater to a more commercial market while continuing its commitment to the municipalities’ and cities’ demand for quality traffic signs and products. Along with the largest commercial screen printing shop on Vancouver Island, Tran Sign dove into the digital era with a fully equipped graphic pre-press department.
We have come a long way since 1948 when the normal production method included hand painted signs. The signs are now produced in mass volumes for over 1,500 regular customers with the assistance of the latest computer technology, accurate printing presses and knowledgeable staff and operators.
Meet the Leadership Team
Kevin has held the General Manager position since 2007. He came to the printing and graphics arts business from a background in aircraft engineering. He was programming CNC computers for engineering applications in his native Scotland 25 years ago when he realized there was a demand for programming to connect computers to graphics arts applications. He set up his own successful graphic design company which he sold when he and his family moved to Canada.
In early 2015, Ansan Group acquired Tran Sign to expand its business line and source its resources internally. Kevin continues to manage the sign manufacturing and printing arm of the Ansan Group where his deep knowledge of the industry makes him a valuable asset to the Company and to the Group.
