What we do
The origin of Brands On can be traced back to the 1950s with the establishment of SEPIA, a company that specialized in installing illuminated signs and outline lighting at petrol stations as a form of high-visibility marketing. Over time, the company expanded its services and solutions, ultimately dividing into two separate entities. SEPIA SOLUTIONS offered a wide range of marketing services and solutions that enhanced brand visibility and customer experience at points of sale and events. SEPIA PRODUCTS focussed on providing high-quality products that increased brand visibility and recognition. SEPIA PRODUCTS underwent a name change in 2019 and is now known as Brands On. We are proud to offer our clients over 60 years of expertise and experience.
Brands On specializes in creating and producing parasols, LED signs and glorifiers, always with corporate social responsibility in mind.
This means that, at our offices and different production locations in Europe, China, South Africa (Tradewinds), we act in ways that embrace the environment, ethical behaviour and sustainable procurement.
We believe it is our duty to turn potentially negative impact on the world into positive influences. We achieve this through:
- Creating a work environment that is pleasant, positive and enjoyable for us, our staff members and any partners
- Showing zero tolerance for child labour
- Producing sustainable products
- Extending the lifetime of our products by offering product care and maintenance services
- Investing in long-term partnerships
Brands On portrays a story of happy moments. A story of those who made our products. And a story of those who enjoy them. Stories that connect. A story of warm light – the one hitting a piece of canvas and the one shining bright in our signs. Stories of parasols and signs. A story of commitment to people and planet. Brilliant stories written with (y)our future in mind.
