The great advantage of metal signs is that, unlike paper prints or posters, they are longlasting
and with this in mind they have employed some of Australia’s most talented artists
and illustrators to reflect the best of our country’s landscape, traditions and icons. They
also use the highest quality manufacturing processes available to ensure the sign range
is of global standard.

He dominated Australian snooker from the early 1960s onwards and held the World Open Championship and the World Matchplay Championship. In the fiercely competitive international scene, he was runner-up in the World Professional Championship twice and has won the popular BBC television series Pot Black three times.
Eddie's brilliant career record includes the remarkable feat of having beaten eight world champions - Horace Lindrum, Fred Davis, John Pulman, John Spencer, Alex Higgins, Ray Reardon, Terry Griffiths and Steve Davis.
Eddie was only nine when the magic of snooker captured him; that same magic which enchanted you and millions of others like us. He had the use of a family table at his hometown, Merewether, the coastal resort between Sydney and Newcastle in NSW. More importantly, at that tender age, he enjoyed the tuition and encouragement of a beloved grandfather.
Eddie was 15 when I first met him and the trademarks of his playing style: the keen eye, concentration and determined jut of the jaw were already evident. The foundation to success had been laid, and that Eddie capitalized on it is now just as evident.
Hard work were the key words to that success. Hard work in the coalmines to earn a living, hard work to develop natural sporting skills at surfing, football and boxing; hard work to absorb the intricacies of snooker technique and, hardest work of all, to cultivate the cue action and co-ordination so necessary to take him to the top of his ultimate profession. Such was the background to the events, the man and the knowledge he acquired which resulted in the magnificent achievements in his life.
