Octink recycling

Display specialist Octink is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. Over five decades it has grown from a small family business into one of the UK’s leading display companies, providing innovative and sustainable display solutions for household name businesses across the UK and internationally.

Giant advertising hoardings, window displays for famous retailers, branding for high profile events including The RHS Chelsea Flower Show and innovative interiors and exteriors of marketing suites and pop up shops, are a few examples of Octink’s wide ranging projects.

OctinkChief Executive Will Tyler, son of the company’s founder, comments: “Technology and client expectations have totally transformed the world of display. 50 years ago signage and display was an industry in its infancy; today it’s all about pushing the boundaries, finding imaginative ways to capture attention and stand out from the crowd.”

The company was founded in 1962 and, as Allsignsgroup, started out by supplying signage to the petroleum industry before developing into the partner of choice in the construction industry. A re-brand to Octink in 2009, using the image of an octopus to signify intelligent thinking, boldness and adaptability, reinforced the company’s new direction.

Based in Brentford, Octink provides a wide variety of services, from concept and design to manufacture and installation. Investment in state-of-the-art printing technology gives it capabilities on a par with the UK’s leading printers. Recognising the vast amount of waste generated by display,
Octink was the first company to introduce a complete recycling service for clients, winning recognition with a place on the prestigious Sunday Times Best Green Companies list for three years running.

With a core client base in the retail, events/exhibitions and construction industries, Octink is now expanding into new sectors and is currently benefiting from the new opportunities generated by London 2012.
