Signs Express Plymouth moves into new ownership


We are pleased to announce the sale of Signs Express Plymouth to its current Production Manager Simon Hallett and his wife Tracy, completing the internal resale of the business on Friday 30 September 2022.

Simon brings with him a wealth of knowledge, having been with Signs Express for 17 years, and over 30 years industry experience, and with Tracy’s experience as a Qualified Accounting Technician, she is well positioned to be running the finance team going forwards.

With ambitious plans to grow the business, through process and system efficiencies and expanding into new markets, we are delighted to welcome Simon and Tracy as new Signs Express franchisees and support them in achieving their goals. 

However, this does mean that we will sadly be saying goodbye to Signs Express Plymouth’s long standing owners Chris and Vida who have successfully been running the centre for over 24 years. Having built the centre from the ground up, Chris and Vida have built a strong reputation for quality and service, with a loyal customer base and wide-ranging product offering.

A big thank you to Chris and Vida for their hard work, dedication and commitment to the business over the years, we wish them all the best for their retirement and their future plans.

Congratulations and welcome to Simon and Tracy, as they join the network as new franchisees who will continue to deliver the exceptional service that customers have come to know in Plymouth, as they start their new venture! We’ll be checking in with Simon and Tracy in the next few months once they’re settled in to discuss their progress and more about their future plans for the business.
