FASTSIGNS Kingston upon Thames 'puts growth into high gear'


Sign and visual communications specialist, FASTSIGNS Kingston upon Thames, has put growth into high gear with a series of new investments in the centre.

So far this year the franchise has doubled in size, from 1,000 to 2,000 square feet, and made a significant six figure investment into new high-performance equipment, leading to a 30 per cent increase in the value of goods produced in-house.

Mark Phelps, owner of FASTSIGNS Kingston upon Thames, said: “The additional space and machinery acquired this year has really enhanced the products and services we offer. This investment has seen profits soar by double digit growth percentages and our year-on-year sales doubled in August. Despite being initially anxious of June’s vote to leave the EU, like most business owners in the UK, it has had little impact so far.”

After a successful ten years owning and operating the centre, Mark extended his franchise agreement for a further decade and plans to continue its current pace of growth.

Mark added: “The next few years will see a focus on training staff, helping them to get maximum benefit from the new equipment with new skills, and growing the centre’s workforce, particularly further support for the sales team.”

John Davies, managing director of FASTSIGNS UK, commented: “It’s great to see the FASTSIGNS Kingston franchise doing so well. These ambitious growth plans, investment in staff and new cutting-edge equipment will help the centre remain at the forefront of the signage industry. We’re very excited to see where Mark will take the centre in the next ten years and beyond.”
