Sign Language has sights on further growth in fleet

Vehicle graphics and wrapping company Sign Language has its sights on further growth in the New Year following a doubling of turnover in 2014.

The company is forecasting a further 50% increase in business in 2015 following turnover rising to £1.8 million in 2014.

The business is gearing up for an explosion in company car, van and truck work in a number of sectors in which it has already seen major success.

Sign Language recently announced a major new contract with Network Rail, which initially sees enhanced livery being introduced across 1,100 new vehicles being introduced to the organisation’s light commercial vehicle and pool car fleet to improve safety and visibility.

During 2014 Sign Language won major contracts with Autoglass, which operates a fleet of 1,700 vans, and Euro Car Parts, car parts distributor which runs an expanding fleet of more than 2,200 light commercial vehicles.

 In recent weeks Sign Language has won deals to supply vehicle livery to, among others, UK-wide electrical wholesale network City Electrical Factors, the Galashiels-based Scottish Borders Housing Association and Coventry-based Whitefriars Housing Association, which collectively operate more than 200 vehicles.

Sign Language managing director Tobin Jenkins said: “2014 saw a sea-change in the size of the business and that is a reflection of the many initiatives we have implemented to gear ourselves up to meet the requirements of the fleet market.”

Jenkins added: “Continuing business growth has meant expanding our production facilities and our production team. We have also increased personnel levels across a number of departments including sales, account services, finance and operations which necessitated an increase in our office space.”

“We wanted to break into the fleet market and with the quality of the contracts that we are winning and the plaudits from clients for the high quality of our work and service levels we have proved we can deliver."
