Signs are so promising for York trio

CHAMPAGNE corks were popping at FASTSIGNS® York when the company won an award less than two years after going into business.

(l-r) Ricky Gervais lookalike, Carl Smith, Matthew Wilson, Kirsty Wilson and FASTSIGNS UK Managing Director Garth AllisonMatthew and Kirsty Wilson, and Carl Smith opened FASTSIGNS York in August 2007 in Boroughbridge Road, York. They were previously in the pub and restaurant business.

Now they have won the FASTSIGNS award for Newcomer of the Year at the company’s UK National Convention and Awards Dinner.

FASTSIGNS offers a full range of custom signs and graphic products to businesses, including banners, posters and exterior and interior signage.

Matthew, Kirsty and Carl are overjoyed to be top of their game.

“We love running our own business and it’s great to be recognised – it was a big surprise to win an award,” said Matthew. 

“We’ve been going two years now and everything’s ticking along well. We beat our sales target in our second year, despite the recession. And we’re looking at moving to bigger premises already.”

Matthew thanked the FASTSIGNS ‘family’ for helping them to succeed: “We’ve got a FASTSIGNS online forum, and whenever we hit a problem, there’s always someone in the company who offers help,” he said.

The trio received their trophy at a glittering awards ceremony in Oxford, where FASTSIGNS’ UK Managing Director Garth Allison had nothing but praise for the York team.

“They’ve done really well, and have grown sales significantly in the last 12 months. We’re very proud to have them in the FASTSIGNS family,” said Garth.
