The contract comes just a couple of months after the firm created a new vehicle
graphics unit at its new headquarters in Springfield Road.
Partner Stuart Ainscow said:
"We can now handle over 1000 vehicles a year and one of the first contracts
we get is for a massive aeroplane!
"The new vehicle unit is fitted with all the latest equipment and we can handle
articulated lorries but we couldnt cope with an aircraft on the premises. I think
the local residents might be upset!"
The Harris Sign Group has already re-signed a Lockheed Electra a plane which can
carry 14.5 tonnes of cargo and regularly flies to North America and is now working
on a Cessna 406, which operates throughout Europe.
John Reeve, group general manager of Atlantic Airlines, said the work had been done as
part of a re-branding exercise for the airline, which has 45 aircraft in its fleet.
"The airport has used The Harris Sign Group for a long time and, after seeing the
quality of its work, we decided to employ it for this project. We have redesigned our
colour scheme and are working through the fleet gradually. We are very pleased with the
outcome and their work can now be seen across the world."
