Ast Signs creates a rebrand for the new Dinsdale Contracts HQ

When Dinsdale Contracts wanted a modern face for their new HQ, they headed to Ast Signs to call on its expertise.

Dinsdale Contracts was established in 1981 with the purchase of a six-wheeler tipper wagon. From those humble beginnings, the family-run business now includes surfacing, planing and haulage.


The Appleby-based business has since undertaken many different types of tarmac work nationwide, from large commercial and industrial contracts to small jobs where the only access is a wheelbarrow.


Dinsdale Contracts has had a great working relationship with Ast Signs for several years. Mark Aston designed the company’s original branding 15 years ago when he first started Ast Signs. Dinsdale was moving to bigger premises and the brief tasked the team with creating exterior signage that gave the company a modern refresh. Lindsay from Dinsdale explained; “With a brand new building we wanted a fresh face to match, whilst ensuring a stress-free process and a quick turnaround.”

“Ast were brilliant and surpassed all our expectations. The same day we made initial contact, was the day Ast Signs sent someone to measure the spaces. We gave them an idea of the sort of thing we were looking for and they went to work straight away”


“The ideas came back really quickly. The Ast Signs team were brilliant at listening to our vision and then coming up with a whole new look that really pushed the branding to the next level.  We love it and are so happy with the final results - the building is now stand-out and we’ve had numerous compliments about the branding!”


After completing the exterior signage, Ast has also wrapped several Dinsdale vehicles and as well as wrapping several interior office walls; “After the efficient service Ast Signs gave us, it was a no-brainer to continue on with them”.
