New Owner for Signs Express (Telford)

19 September 2016

Signs Express is the market leading sign and graphics company in the UK and their network of over 60 centres is growing. With over 25 years of experience, this proven business model has some premium locations and resales of existing centres currently available.

One such person who has taken advantage of the prosperous franchise and capitalised on the opportunity to buy an existing Signs Express business in Telford is Martin Geddes-Smith.

Buying an existing centre means you have a ready-made business that will enable you to walk in from day one with a full set up, staff, customer base and sales already in place. Established for 22 years, Martin is working with the highly skilled team already in place at the production centre, to continue producing first class, innovative signage solutions whilst expanding their existing customer base.

Having previously worked within the automotive industry and real estate, Martin has experience in customer service and sales that will be invaluable in his new role.

Craig Brown, MD of Signs Express commented that, “Martin Geddes-Smith has a wealth of experience that will aid him in his new venture as owner of Signs Express (Telford). Delivering customer service excellence to existing customers is at the forefront of Martin’s mind, thanks to the already strong foundation created by the previous owners. We are looking forward to working with Martin to achieve further growth over the coming months”

Established in 1994, Martin saw the resale of the centre as the perfect business opportunity with tremendous scope for growth.

“I was thrilled when the opportunity to buy Signs Express (Telford) became available. Established since the early nighties the centre has a solid customer base and excellent reputation, so I was very interested in taking on the opportunity. I’m looking forward to continue delivering top quality products and am excited for the future” – Martin Geddes-Smith, Franchisee of Signs Express (Telford)

Our franchise opportunities can be highly lucrative for the right candidate and as a management franchise, you need no previous sign industry experience to join the Signs Express network.
