Sustained growth has seen Countrywide Signs relocate its central warehouse in Suffolk to new larger premises to keep up with soaring demand.

Countrywide Signs

The business, whose franchisees service ‘For Sale’ and ‘To Let’ estate agency boards for local and national clients, has experienced significant expansion in the last few years. National account work rose by 30% last year and is on track to repeat that remarkable growth again in 2017.

Franchisees also provide commercial signage of all kinds to their local businesses and event, which has diversified and increased revenue streams in the network.

To cope with the increased level of demand, a new unit has been taken to store and manage the complex operations involved in distributing signs to Countrywide Signs franchisees across the UK at short notice. The company’s focus on exceptional service, with boards put up and taken down swiftly for each client, is driven by technology systems to maximise each franchisee’s efficiency. The warehouse will help drive further efficiencies across the business.

Director Martin Attwood QFP cited these at the launch of the new site. He said: “Keeping up with customer demand is a great problem for any business to have. Our growth was causing headaches for board management and distribution in our previous warehouse, so the opening of the new facility is very welcome news.

“With customers including Purple Bricks and several of the nation’s leading estate agency brands, our franchisees collectively provide an unrivalled service in the industry and are renowned for their client care. The new site helps us guarantee that reputation for years to come.”

Countrywide Signs offers highly flexible investment levels, with three options for incoming franchisees depending on the size of business they’re looking to run, from owner-operator to multi-van operations from day one.
