THE Bolton branch of global signage specialist, FASTSIGNS, has relocated as part of its plans for continued expansion, and has been praised by one of the world’s leading businesswomen.
Catherine Monson, global CEO of FASTSIGNS, flew into the region from the United States to visit the new premises based on Bury New Road.
As well as overseeing FASTSIGNS’ entire global network of over 700 franchises in nine countries, Catherine is also a board member of the International Franchise Association (IFA) and is on the National Educational Foundation Board of Trustees in the US.
Alongside FASTSIGNS UK managing director John Davies, Catherine handpicked Bolton as one of seven centres to visit during her time in the UK.
Speaking after the visit, Catherine said: “Our ultimate goal is to support our franchisees and help them achieve their ambitions for growth. This strategic relocation of FASTSIGNS Bolton is a shining example of how a business can develop. The move has facilitated future growth for this centre in years to come.
“It’s clear to see that this relocated centre will enable the company to invest in new machinery, and meet its client’s needs as the solutions they desire become increasingly complex and diverse.”
Owner, David Hiney, has been a FASTSIGNS franchisee for more than three years and looks forward to the benefits the recent move can bring to his clients and the business.
For David, Catherine’s visit was the perfect way to mark the launch of its new centre. He said: “Moving is exciting for every business and it’s been wonderful to share this moment with Catherine as part of her UK visit. It’s great to get support from the CEO – we’re a relatively small centre, a visit like this shows her commitment to every member of the franchise network.
“On a wider scale, FASTSIGNS also provides fantastic support on all aspects of the business, which is invaluable for us and has enabled us to reach this period of growth. Over the coming year, we look forward to helping even more of our customers, old and new, with their visual communications challenges.”
