Established in 1971 by Alan Ditty, The Signature Works (originally called Sports Crest) was founded to supply embroidered garments to clubs and societies. With its roots in the Belfast linen industry the company has a colourful history including a fire that nearly destroyed everything. Inspite of these set-backs and the troubles in Northern Ireland Sports Crest still counted M&S, Adidas, Nike and Umbro amongst its customers.
Some years later in 1990 Peter McConvey started Expert T’s, specialising in screen-printed clothing. Originally called Brookfield Designs, Expert T’s quality product and service quickly gained an impressive customer base including fashion designer Paul Costello.
In 1992 Alan’s son Malcom joined the family business. Just a few years later Expert T’s and Sports Crest merged to create a stronger business able to offer a full personalisation print and embroidery service for its customers. Malcolm and Peter are still the joint managing directors today.
After diversifying over the years to provide a much wider range of products the business rebranded in 2010 to The Signature Works to better reflect the services and products offered.
At The Signature Works we pride ourselves on our quality product, service and personal approach, always working to stay at the forefront of what we do. Over recent years we have invested heavily into the business, upgrading equipment, creating a new welcoming showroom, recruiting and training staff and improving our communications.
We’re proud of our company history and intend on making a bright future.
