Craidon Display was officially launched at the recent Sign Africa show in Johannesburg. Prior to joining the signage and display industry, owner Craig Van De Venter spent 10 years working on chartered yachts.

Earlier this year Craig decided to settle back in South Africa and start his own business. Initially, Craig had thought of adapting the American idea of renting business and residential furniture. After some research into the local markets, his business idea evolved and he decided to establish a business supplying exhibition and display products.

Craidon Display’s range of services includes graphic design, stand design, hardware for exhibition stands, shell scheme, outdoor products, banner walls and printing for branding solutions. The company is targeting companies in need of branding, exhibition stands and displays, as well as graphic designers and digital printers. Craidon Display supplies more than just standard off-the-shelf units – the company provides customised solutions for clients’ specific requirements.

The company has also secured distribution rights for Africa for the Modulbox system and the Retail Merchandising Unit. (See attached pictures.)The modular stand-in-a box Modulbox is portable and easy to set up, making it ideal for roadshows, events and exhibitions. Each Modulbox can be custom-designed to a client’s specifications.

The Retail Merchandising Units are special-purpose retail kiosks that distinguish themselves from the usual retail carts by eliminating the customary wagon wheels and adding retail fixtures and shelving, special lighting and extra security features. Exhibiting at Sign Africa has been very positive for Craidon Display. The show generated a lot of interest in the company and its stand tied as winner in the ‘Best Small Stand – Up to 12m² floor space’ category. (See attached photo.)
