Who we are

Brissco was incorporated in 1948 as the Bristol Typewriter Company and started business in the maintenance, repair and reconditioning of typewriters along with the supply of paper, carbons and ribbons.

The Company operated out of rented rooms in the centre of Bristol.

An association with the 3M Company in 1952 enabled Brissco to experiment in making signs on their self adhesive materials.

This was a successful venture and has resulted in Brissco becoming a dedicated bespoke sign maker, manufacturing many forms of signage and labelling for a wide spectrum of businesses including Manufacturing, Aerospace, Transport, Utilities and Local Authorities.

Brissco moved to its current premises in 1988 a twenty two thousand sq ft factory in south Bristol.
