Sign Language appointments support expansion

Fleet news logo

Vehicle graphics and wrapping specialist Sign Language has made two senior appointments further supporting the company’s business growth.

The company has appointed Lee Abrey as production manager and Sara Lambert as financial controller with creation of the new jobs following the early 2014 appointment of Ken Smale as account services manager.

Previously the roles of production manager and financial controller were wrapped into the responsibilities of long-serving Nigel Brown, who continues in the post of operations manager.

The new appointments come with Sign Language already seeing a major increase in business, notably from vehicle fleets, in the first weeks of 2014.

Turnover at the expanding company was more than £1 million in 2013, but that is forecast to increase by around 300% in 2014 with 90% of earnings from the fleet sector.

Managing director Tobin Jenkins (pictured centre) said: "We announced a major new contract with Autoglass early this year and anticipate being able to announce a significant further contract win with an existing customer in the coming weeks.

"In addition, Sign Language continues to win other business with both end-user fleets and through our relationships with a number of the UK’s major contract hire and leasing companies including Lex Autolease and LeasePlan."

A further wave of new jobs sees Sign Language currently recruiting four vinyl applicators to strengthen its in-house fitting team.
