Tim Andrews, MD Hollywood Monster and Graham Shennan, MD Morgan Sindall
Hollywood Monster played an integral part in the merger between Morgan Ashurst, Morgan Est and Morgan Professional Services which now all operate under the name of Morgan Sindall, creating a larger division.
The Birmingham based signage and wide format printers faced a huge logistical challenge when they were called upon to deliver the newly branded signage and other materials to over 250 sites and 42 offices all in the space of one weekend.
The merger between Morgan Sindall’s Construction and Infrastructure businesses makes the firm one of the largest in its field, employing more than 4,800 people nationwide.
Hollywood Monster are under contract to supply their sites and offices with branded signage, health and safety signage, window manifestations and plant stickers amongst many other services. The contract is worth in the region of £500,000.
Over 300 addresses required re-branding over three days, which saw more than 1,000 parcels sent out around the UK. All materials were manufactured within a two week lead time - culminating in over 3,000 man hours from the team at Hollywood Monster, right the way from the production workers to the managing director, Tim Andrews.
“This was a sizeable challenge for us all here at Hollywood Monster, we were thrilled to be part of such a momentous merger yet we knew we would have to pull together as a team to fulfil a contract of this nature. With a lot of hard work and dedication from everyone within the company we achieved the deadlines and were delighted with the results. We are now looking forward to a long and rewarding working relationship with the newly merged Morgan Sindall.”
Graham Shennan, managing director for Morgan Sindall said “This was a major challenge, but through excellent planning and teamwork by employees of Morgan Sindall and by Hollywood Monster, the re-brand was accomplished to a very tight deadline. We now look forward to developing and driving the brand forward.”
Following the Merger of Hollywood Signs with Monster Digital, Hollywood Monster have been going from strength to strength with the final quarter in 2009 being the busiest on record, with the output and installation of over 10,000 square metres of new temporary and permanent signage, graphics and visual media. Hollywood Monster work with some of the biggest names across the UK, including HMV, Morgan Sindall, Redrow Homes, Virgin Media, Lovell Homes and Crosby Lend Lease.
