In 1996 Vixtrix Signs started printing Event Banners for Coca-Cola Tzaneen Depot. Mr Pieter Kruger, Tzaneen Depot Manager, applied for official approval of Vixtrix Signs as signage supplier. A sample of a 600mm x 600mm screen printed Selected Board with the Coca-Cola logos was submitted by him to the relevant decision makers at Coca-Cola head office. Upon instruction from Coca-Cola head office, we then manufactured facia and RRD Boards using printed steel sheets supplied by Everton. We supplied and applied white vinyl cut letters on the boards and installed them at designated vendors and outlets. This was followed by a trade visit by the then CEO of Coca-Cola, Mr Martin Jansen, that turned out to be pivotal for Vixtrix Signs. One of the reasons for his visit was to inspect the quality of signage supplied by Vixtrix Signs at the various outlets for Coca-Cola. He verbally expressed his satisfaction with the quality and accuracy of our work. Since then we have forged a longstanding partnership, supplying and installing Coca-Cola signage for the Mopani District for over 18 years as an officially GREEN rated supplier (See assessment letter on the next page). We allocated a dedicated team of four under the direction of Mr Bernard Froïse to prioritise all Coca-Cola printing, applications and installation in order to guarantee exceptional service at all times.

In 2007 Vixtrix Signs started working with Brandhouse locally in Tzaneen and outlying surrounds. Brandhouse has since dissolved into DIAGEO and Heineken holder brands respectively. In 2011 Vixtrix was accredited to deliver signage for all the brands under the Brandhouse banner in Limpopo and Mpumalanga by the then Brandhouse National Procurement Manager, Mr Sacher Ducati. The scope of signage delivery included manufacture, printing, lamination, application and inslallion of signage such as facia signs, window decals, vehicle branding, appliance branding (fridges etc) and illuminated signage (light boxes, inluding LEDs and electrical fixtures) as required.
