8 Mo Bros have banded together to make a hairy stand for men's health.

Logo Wolf Black

Bensons' participants Mo-growing capabilities range from lamb's wool (not to venture out in the wind during Movember) to wire wool (useful in our workshops), all sprouting at various rates of knots.

Whatever the 30th of Movember brings, be it a fine furry down visible only under electron microscope, or an upper lip burdened with a wiry weight so great that speech is barely possible, all that matters is that a stupendous stash of tash cash is raised to help further the cause.

Furthermore, Benson Signs will be matching the total raised by the bros.

So, please visit and make a donation.


Day 6 in the Big Mo Bro House - nothing to report... yet!

Subway Trafford Park 2

By replacing existing sign lighting with LED units we’re saving clients money and reducing CO2 emissions.


Over the past 2 years, we have been rolling out a large-scale programme of retrofit LED conversions to Subway Stores throughout the UK.
The signage industry has embraced the benefits of LED use over conventional neon and fluorescent tube technology, but none more so than us, here at Benson Signs. While the technology was in its infancy we were experimenting and developing how best to maximise their advantages, as part of our goal to be the greenest sign manufacture in the UK. In 2002 we installed our first LED sign in Knightsbridge, London.

The benefits of LED are obvious:
    Reduced service costs
    Increased lifespan of the unit
    Enhanced light output
    Instant light quality, where others require warming up

Lastly, and most significant of all:
    Dramatic increase in energy efficiency
    Low carbon emissions
    Reduced electricity bills

Over the past 2 years, we have retrofitted over 20 Subway stores with 43 LED illuminated signs, generating annual cost savings in the region of £20,000. This equates to just under 100 tonnes CO2 per year, the equivalent of 2000 young trees growing over 10 years.

The average savings on energy bills of the signs will provide a Return on Investment in the region of 2 years.

Managing Director, Chris Benson said, "Converting conventionally illuminated signs is a WIN, WIN, WIN situation for the client, ourselves, and most importantly the environment."
