Both Stephen and Ben are chartered accountants with plenty of experience advising businesses and organisations to make sound financial decisions, so they are well versed in managing a team and the processes involved in owning a business. This father and son team will be joined at the unit by Stephen’s son-in-law, Dan Talbot making this truly a family enterprise.

Signs Express (Central Lancashire) was first established in 1997 and has over the years developed an excellent reputation in the region as well as a loyal customer base that the Hall’s will be able to leverage upon in the future as well as creating new client relationships and pursuing new avenues of opportunity.

Craig Brown, MD of the Signs Express network commented on the new ownership: “We are pleased to welcome this family unit into our network and we feel that they are perfectly suited to making a success of this opportunity. I am sure that everybody in the Signs Express network wishes them the best in their future endeavours and we look forward to seeing the business grow and prosper under their capable management.”

Based in exceptionally large and impressive premises, the previous owner, Alan Parkinson, was able to increase the centre’s production capacity and incorporate additional facilities into its operations. The sign makers employed at the site have become experts, not only in general sign making, but also in specialist areas, such as the creation of tactile and Braille signs as well as large-format full-colour digital printing.

With a well-trained and experienced team at hand, it is service as usual at the centre during this hand over. So, whether you are looking for business signs in Blackburn, a shop sign in Blackpool or a fleet of vehicle graphics in Preston, Signs Express (Central Lancashire) have the right solution for your needs.  Give them a call today to find out how they can help you: 01772 797 800
