The Commonwealth Games 2022 has now wrapped up, but the buzz they created in and around the region will stay for a long time.

For 11 days, Birmingham took the centre stage in the world sports arena. The 22nd Commonwealth Games brought thousands of tourists from other parts of the UK and the world. According to local authorities, it is estimated to have generated more than £1bn for the hosting city and local region.

Hardy Signs was delighted to contribute to the richness of products, services and companies that made the games happen. Through working with CSM Live and Sandwell Council, its machines and people ensured that the signage required was fitted to exact requirements and within deadlines.

As a multi-award-winning manufacturer, it worked closely with the other event partners to supply:

  1. Graphics with anti-graffiti lamination for all hoarding at Chamberlain Square in the heart of the city. Among the graphics applied, we were pleased to install images of Perry The Bull.

Did you know: Did you know that Perry the Bull, the official mascot of Commonwealth Games Birmingham 2022, was designed by Emma from Greater Manchester – only ten years old?

  1. More than 300 double-sided banner arms and banners across Sandwell.
  2. Mesh PVC banners to dress bridges
  3. Full-colour vinyl to wrap parts of TV trucks in Sutton Park and Cannock Chase.
  4. Panels at Centenary Way

Hardy Signs managing director Nik Hardy said: “We are really pleased to have been entrusted with this high profile project, a very proud moment for Hardy Signs that needs celebrating.”

Operations director Tom Hardy said: “We really enjoyed printing and installing the signage. The atmosphere in and around the venue was spectacular and our team worked around the clock to get everything completed within the tight deadlines.”
